Balance Is Restored plays through the game's extensive ending sequence. The song, like the ending, is over 20 minutes long and includes elements from various other songs that played throughout the game.

When this was released, it made history as the longest non-repeating game ending by far, and it really raised the bar for future game endings.

Near the end of the song, the original Final Fantasy (NES) Opening Theme is heard.


The song's title varies depending on your source. This site uses the most recent American release of the official soundtrack.
