"Battle Theme" from Final Fantasy X (PS2)

This is the main battle theme of FFX. The staccato melody of the trumpets and the measured tempo remind one of unshakeable strength and faith.

"Battle Theme" (ノーマルバトル, Nōmaru Batoru?, lit. Normal Battle) is a battle theme from Final Fantasy X. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu. The track is one of numerous tracks on the soundtrack that was redone for the Final Fantasy X HD Remaster.

"Battle Theme" is the normal battle theme. It is the ninth track on the first disc in the original soundtrack.

For Final Fantasy X HD Remaster, "Battle Theme" was remastered by Nobuo Uematsu and Tsutomu Narita using real instruments. It received an orchestrated metal arrangement. "I wanted to rearrange the song to have a grander sound while maintaining the mood of the original at the same time," Narita said of the big-band-like upscaling to the "Normal Battle" theme. "Brass and string instruments were already important elements of the original song, so we decided to expand into a full orchestral piece by adding other instruments as well."[1]
