All hail.

The trailer for role-playing game Final Fantasy XV has arrived and among the summoned monsters and music from the game’s composer, Yoko Shimomura, it features the dulcet tones of Florence + the Machine.

Covering Ben E. King’s 1961 classic ‘Stand by Me’, Welch called the track “one of the greatest songs probably of all time,” saying she’s “always seen Final Fantasy as mythical, beautiful and epic.”

The game is set for a September 30 release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Aside from being a classic of the genre, Final Fantasy VI and VII were both ranked very high in our list of the 100 greatest video game soundtracks of all time.
