The exclusive interviews keep on coming! On top of interviewing Masashi Hamauzu (Composer behind Final Fantasy XIII), I was given the opportunity to also speak to Arnie Roth (Conductor behind the Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy tour) and Susan Calloway (pop singer, most known for her work on the theme song to Final Fantasy XIV - Answers).

The full interview can be read in its entirety by clicking the link below.

Stay tuned for more updates and the latest trends in the gaming industry. Feel free to hit me up on Twitter (@M_I_Williams) to chat more, VGTribuners!
