Where to find every music disc in Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake reintroduces players to the world of Midgar in an extraordinary way. The graphics have been updated and the game plays beautifully. The game is massive and the world is full of places to explore and treasure to find. One of the primary treasures that you can find is music discs.

Collecting all the music discs in Final Fantasy VII Remake allows players to unlock the Disc Jockey trophy, which brings you one step closer to getting the coveted Platinum trophy for the game. However, finding all 31 music discs is not an easy feat. There are a lot of places to check and a lot of hidden spots that you may have trouble locating.

Disc locations

Finding where every disc is located can be troublesome. However, collecting the discs as you move through the game is the best way to collect them all. It will keep you from having to double back or accidentally missing the disc completely. The discs can be found starting in chapter 3, and at least one disc can be found per chapter. It is pretty easy to tell when you are close to the disc, as the music, which isn’t the music associated with the level, gets louder. Also, remember to bring about 50 gil along, as discs at vending machines and shops cost around 50 gil apiece.

Also keep in mind that the disc numbers are not found in chronological order. So even though you will find Tifa’s Theme first, the disc number for this song is 03. So don’t panic if the numbers don’t make sense, you may not have missed a disc.

Chapter 3

The first disc you will find is Music Disc 03: Tifa’s Theme. Once in Seventh Heaven Bar, you have the opportunity to speak with Marlene. After speaking with the young, shy girl, head to the jukebox in the corner of the bar. Interacting with the jukebox will give you the first disc.

You’ll find the next disc, Music Disc 27: Hip Hop de Chocobo, after sleeping in your room. Once the day begins, but before heading to the Seventh Heaven bar, take a quick path to the right of the bar. Here, you’ll reach a club with a radio playing. Talk to the guy by the radio and he will just hand over the song.

Music Disc 01: The Prelude is the next disc that you will run into, as it is easily purchased from the item shop that you visit with Tifa. There will be a radio playing the song loudly. Simply speak to the shop keeper and purchase the song.

The final disc to pick up in chapter 3 is Music Disc 04: Barret’s Theme. After all the side quests are unlocked, head back to the train station where you first arrived in Midgar. The shop owner has the disc and is selling it for 50 Gil. You will also be able to get this disc at the beginning of chapter 4. So if you don’t feel like backtracking, then wait for the next chapter to begin to find the disc.

Chapter 5

The next disc, Music Disc 28: Stamp, can be found after fighting two Sentry Launchers in the Corkscrew Tunnel. You will find a side room nearby that has a vending machine. The fifth disc can be purchased here.

Chapter 6

Finding the sixth disc, Music Disc 18: Electric de Chocobo, can be a little tricky. After turning off all the 3 Sun Lamps, you’re supposed to head back to a large cargo elevator and head up. Instead, head west of the cargo elevator and head back towards where you entered to find a small elevator. Use the small elevator, which will move you toward where the fans are located. The first room you will enter has a vending machine that sells Electric de Chocobo.

You have to accept and get a “Great” rating on all 10 button presses. If you do not get all 10 “Great” button timings, the dance tutorial can be repeated as many times as needed.

While the role-playing game (RPG) has become a catch-all genre, now encompassing an almost silly range of games that don't share much in common, there was one video game franchise in the 1980s that was the quintessential RPG. Yes, we're talking about Final Fantasy from Square Enix.

The fantasy Japanese RPGs debuted on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1987, but they became cultural touchstones in the '90s as Super Nintendo games. From there, the series made an incredibly successful jump to 3D on the PlayStation 1 before the mainline series started to take more risks, including the elimination of turn-based battles and massively multiplayer online game (MMO) entries, and the latest game, Final Fantasy XVI, becoming a full-on character-action game.

All Dominants and Eikons in Final Fantasy 16

As with most games across the past four decades of Square-Enix's most popular role-playing franchise, Final Fantasy 16 sports plenty of gigantic summons based on various mythologies and religions. However, while these usually play a small part in the overall narrative of past Final Fantasy games, the newest game in the series brings them front and center as an integral part of its main storyline.

In the world of Final Fantasy 16, summons are known as Eikons, and each of these god-like beings possesses a host called a Dominant — a person who can summon the Eikon into the world and use their powers in battle. There are eight in total, and all of them play an important role in the intense and winding tale that Final Fantasy 16 weaves throughout its lengthy campaign.

Every JRPG, and even games with RPG elements, likes to introduce new systems into the mix for you to learn and interact with. Most of the mechanics in Final Fantasy 16 will be familiar, like sidequests, upgrading gear, and unlocking abilities. However, later on, the game will introduce you to the Renown system once you take control of the Cursebreakers. This occurs once you reach the main hub of the game called Cid's Hideaway after going through the main story until you reach A Chance Encounter. While you might be feeling content ignoring this new mechanic and just pushing on with the main story, there are plenty of reasons to learn it. Here's a simple explanation of how the Renown system works in Final Fantasy 16.
What is Renown and how to earn it

Without spoiling much, after Clive takes on a certain mantle and is in charge of Cid's Hideaway, the Renown system will automatically be put into effect. This is meant to represent how much inspiration and support Clive has earned from the people of Valisthea in his cause and fight against the Blight. You can see how much Renown you currently have by visiting the Patron's Whisper and talking to Desiree.
