“Our music loving fans are always looking for more, and a piano arrangement has been long requested, so without further ado we’re pleased to announce the Piano Collections Final Fantasy XIV,” the studio said. “The collection will include piano tracks found on ‘From Astral to Umbral’ and ‘Duality,’ and also includes brand-new tracks that were recorded just for the album.”
