The opening ceremony of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics is currently being held. Italy obviously took part in the event too, thanks to the presence of a very large delegation.
The various national teams are parading for the ceremony and apparently the video game is the absolute protagonist of the event, thanks to the choice of including some famous music tracks from successful titles.
Thanks to a list that appeared on Twitter a little while ago it emerged that the soundtracks of Final Fantasy, Nier and
The adventure of Sora, Mickey & Co. has in fact become trendy on Twitter in record time , showing a certain interest for the thing from audiences around the world.
As they point out on social media, there is a small mistake: for Nier the track “Initiator” was not used but the song called “Inishie no Uta”.
As regards Italy and the musical theme taken from Kingdom Hearts , it is specifically the song “Olympus Coliseum” , heard in the first chapter of the series in the animated world of Hercules.
A little further down, you can admire for yourself the moment in which our national team entered the scene at the Olympics, to the notes composed by master Yōko Shimomura .
