And yes there is a new battle theme that played when Lightning was in combat. Itís not the song youíve heard in the trailers through. It had a fast tempo, and sounded like Naoshi Mizutaís work. From what I heard, it didnít have the melody of Blinded by Light.
Good. I would get sick of that theme being the motif for every single game in the saga. One of the few things SE still nails is the soundtracks, so I want something new out of it in terms of battle themes.
Thing is, BbL is Lightning's theme. And since Lightning is the only playable character in this game, it'd make sense for them to put a little of BbL in the battle theme.
No, it would make sense for the motif from Lightning's themes in general to appear in some themes. Not the battle theme, that should be new, aside from the fact that this is a new game there's also the fact that if they spam that motif any more in the standard battle theme for a second game it will get incredibly annoying.
And you do realize that Blinded by Light is not the only theme in XIII to have her theme? She outright has a theme called Lightning's Theme.
Yeah, I know. Probably should have capitalized the 't', huh?
Honestly, I think the motif for most of the songs will be Serah's(Lumina's?) Theme, like XIII and XIII-2. If this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9o9GkkAIIzU is really a song from the game, they are already using Serah's Theme from XIII-2.
I should probably add that I wouldn't bet money on that song being a track in the game. But I'm not going to dismiss it completely just yet.
