Square Enix is holding a Final Fantasy XI anniversary concert in Berkeley, California this Saturday, September 22nd, celebrating the game's 10th anniversary and offering fans a unique way to experience the massively multiplayer online game's soundtrack.
The orchestra will feature musicians from local ensembles under conductor Arnie Roth, maestro of Square Enix's Distant Worlds Final Fantasy concert series. Special guest composers Naoshi Mizuta and Kumi Tanioka, who worked alongside series' veteran Nobuo Uematsu on Final Fantasy XI's soundtrack, will have an autograph session after the show, available to attendees who purchase VIP tickets. Square also promises a few "special surprises" to be revealed at the concert.
Attendees will also receive a special in-game item for Final Fantasy XI, the Maestro's Baton, which emits a spray of musical notes when attacking enemies.
Final Fantasy XI was released in 2002 for PlayStation 2 and PC in Japan and in 2003 for PC in North America. The PS2 version hit North America in 2004, while Europe received the PC version only that same year.
