Last year, Katy Perry confirmed she would make a surprise appearance in a Final Fantasy game, as well as unveiling a new song to tie in nicely with it.

In December, Perry released her single ‘Immortal Flame’, which came as a direct tie-in to her appearance in the mobile video game Final Fantasy Brave Exvius.

In 2016, Florence + the Machine contributed new music to Final Fantasy XV. The cover of the Ben E. King classic ‘Stand By Me’ soundtracked one of the game’s trailers.

“I’ve always seen Final Fantasy as mythical, beautiful and epic,” Welch said in a statement. “‘Stand By Me’ is one of the greatest songs probably of all time and you can’t really improve on it, you just have to make it your own. For me it was just about bringing the song into the world of Florence + the Machine and the world of Final Fantasy.”
