TriviaEdit

  • The link between Sora and Roxas is referenced during "1st Mov. : Sora - Allegro con brio", which includes a snippet of the melody from "Roxas".
  • The name in the 1st and 2nd movements and the Finale are the tempo of the pieces, translated respectively as "Fast with Vigor and Spirit", "Sustained at a walking pace", and "Fast and Lively". The 3rd movement itself is an "intermission".
  • "The Other Promise" contains many excerpts from "Roxas", but uses minor chords rather than major chords, giving it a darker tone.
  • The intro of "Concert Paraphrase on 'Dearly Beloved' " (0:00-0:35) is featured in the E3 2014 trailer for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, during the teaser for Kingdom Hearts III at the end of the trailer
