The product comes with 62 tracks that have been remixed and rerecorded for the HD remastered version. One of the tracks also came from the Final Fantasy Agito smart phone app that was only released in Japan. Along with the music, you will also get to view videos and artwork from the game.
PS4 and Xbox One Gaming Headsets
The mainline Final Fantasy series is known for its excellent soundtracks. Composer Takeharu Ishimoto was able to continue the tradition with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD with plenty of exceptional music tracks. To best listen to the background sound, we suggest getting a headset.
For the PlayStation 4 version, we recommend getting the PlayStation Pulse Elite and PlayStation Gold Wireless Headsets as well as the PlayStation Silver Wired Headset. The wireless headsets are more expensive but are worth the costs. At the same time, the PlayStation Silver is also a good alternative if you are a little tight on the budget. If you are interested, you can purchase either of the three with these Amazon links: PlayStation Pulse Elite Edition Wireless Stereo Headset, PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset and PlayStation Silver Wired Stereo Headset.
