"Did I miss something?!
Final Fantasy has had a vocal pop song since Final Fantasy VIII, that was over a decade ago. Let alone the last trailer had a Japanese pop song. My mind can barely comprehend why people might be upset. Is it because of the quality of the song? You do realize that the original Japanese pop song wasn't anything to write home about, by Japanese pop song standards. Were not talking about the next "Eye's on Me" here.
They bought the rights to have a Leona Lewis song. They also took the time to rerender prerendered video of the characters talking in English. They want to appeal to the larger western audience. If this upsets you, I can understand that to a point (I have mixed feelings about it. I think it's still beyond stupid they don't have dual language anywhere), but you have to also understand the smart business and effort that has clearly gone into this release.
So no, I feel no different with the inclusion of this song than any other pop song that has been attached to a Final Fantasy game. If you feel uncomfortable(???REALLY??? It's just a theme song. There is other music in the game.) listening to this while watching it, I can only assume you are still an immature J.R. High School student. Grow up. "
And your abundant use of caps, bold style, and question marks makes you the most grown up person I've ever encountered on the internet.
Seriously, people can have different tastes. Why do you feel this need to come down on people who do not share your conception of what is going on here?
That said, I do agree that the Japanese theme isn't all that great either, however, at least the Japanese song was specifically commissioned for this game while the English song was just some track on an album that was already out. Also, I thought the inclusion of the Japanese theme (translated or not) in the previous games gave it something extra; a quirk if you will.
EDIT: I forgot to add that I'm not against the inclusion of this song, but I prefer to have the original song included.
