Japanese fans of the game Final Fantasy XVI have hailed the unveiling of the cover art for its theme song, “Tsuki Wo Miteita – Moongazing”. The track is releasing in Japan later this month and will be available to stream and download through various music streaming services.
The atmospheric song – which translates to “Gazing at the Moon”, is composed and arranged by Hitoshi Fujima, and sung by Asuca Hayashi. The vibrant artwork on the cover features Asuca Hayashi in a dreamy landscape filled with reflecting water, stars, and a faint image of the moon. It was designed by illustrator Clair-Etienne Jouclas.
The song is an original composition that was designed to capture the essence of Final Fantasy XVI’s expected story. Its lyrics reflect the faith and courage in the journey of its main characters to bring back the world’s light. This mood is reflected in the cover art; with its vibrant colors and dreamy landscape alluding to a journey of challenge, courage, and discovery.
The popularity of Final Fantasy XVI content in Japan has been steadily increasing since its announcement earlier this year. With the unveiling of the cover art for its theme song, anime and game fans eagerly await the release of the song, while anticipating the full story when the game is released.
