Joe Down Studio Interview
02.17.08 - 12:48 AM

Joe Down Studio, the Hokkaido-based music development house, has recently completed the original score to a Square Enix role-paying game for the Nintendo Wii. Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon: Labyrinth of Forgotten Time puts the player in the role of a chocobo charged with the task of saving an ailing town whose denizens have had their memories stolen. The game features a soundtrack composed primarily of remixes from Final Fantasy titles stretching all the way back to the original game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. You may have heard the arrangements by Joe Down Studio in Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales for the Nintendo DS. This time out, utilizing the audio capabilities of the Wii and the studio's library of equipment, the Joe Down team has furthered the aim of re-imagining the classics of Final Fantasy music on a new generation of consoles.
