Sorry for the extended. All the others have crap audio quality.

There's a sustained C# in the first measure that I think would be good to write in as beat 1 in the right hand.

I'm not sure the slurred staccato'd A's work particularly well in m. 3-4. It feels pretty different than everywhere else in the song and I think it might feel more natural if you just kept it as a sustained A in m. 3. You could also try writing in the countermelody in the second half of m. 4.

Other than that, looks pretty good. I think the fifth in m. 19 might be better as a third (G on bottom), and that the LH might appreciate a whole note A in m. 12 like the ones before it.

Concerning m12 - The note is actually a C#. I left it out intentionally as it either muddies the melody in a way not present in the original or sounds really out of place if it drops an octave.

I took out the slurs and staccatos, but I want the notes in as present. For me, it's one of the more distinctive parts of the song and the phrase I remembered it by when playing the game.

C# added in m1 and m19 was changed.

Looks pretty good, just a few things:

-Do we really need the specificity of the quaver rest at the end of bars 14, 16, 18 and 20?  It seems a little cumbersome to me.
-Why not include the little fanfare at the end of bar 4?  Like this, maybe?

-Dns rather than Fns in bar 2's left hand?
-FEH Tap Battle calls this track 'Beyond Distant Skies - Roy's Departure' which is probably the closest we're going to get to an official source, since that comes directly from IS.
