Final Fantasy chiptune demake albums coming to US/EU

Maybe you saw our review of the XI Chips album -- FINAL FANTASY XI Chiptune -- in our Note Worthy feature earlier this month. We loved the 8-bit demakes of our favorite tracks from Final Fantasy XI, but were a little annoyed that the album wasn't more widely available. We were even more bummed when we learned Square Enix was planning VII Chips, VIII, Chips, IX Chips, and X Chips to celebrate the franchise's 25th anniversary taking place this year.

Well, be envious no longer, as we've received word directly from Square Enix that all five (VII-XI) Chips albums will be available shortly in the North American and European Square Enix e-Stores as well. Speaking from experience on the XI Chips album, I can say this is great news, and I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the remaining items in the collection.

I was thinking, could this be extended to the SNES titles in the franchise as well? Perhaps they skipped them thinking 16-bit game music was retro enough, but I'd sure buy it! Will you be picking any of these up when they hit an e-Store near you?
