posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Ustream will host a live streaming event featuring music from Square Enix's SQ Chips game music remix CD on September 29 from 8:00 - 11:00 p.m. (JST). The CD includes remixed songs from game series like Final Fantasy and Seiken Densetsu (Mana). Thirteen Japanese remixers created the tracks for the CD. Among them, artists DJ OMKT、SEXY-SYNTHESIZER feat.(S_S)、Deadball P, and others will attend and perform at “SQUARE ENIX MUSIC presents SQ Party LEVEL1”. Streaming worldwide, the event will take place at 2.5D in Tokyo.
The SQ Chips game music remix album shipped in Japan on September 7 for the retail price of 1,890 yen (about US$25). Most of the CD's eighteen tracks are remixed versions of songs from the Final Fantasy role-playing game series. Soul Eater manga artist Atsushi Ohkubo drew the jacket art for SQ Chips. Video game and publishing company Square Enix previously released several other game music remix albums in its SQ Music series.
Ustream hosted a similar live streaming event for the CD on August 3, before the album's release.
