This is definitely the kind of thing that really helps a Wednesday fly! Without a doubt one of the finest RPG’s created, Squaresoft’s Xenogears also boasts one of the best soundtracks around (as a matter of fact it has never left my iPod) and thanks to Yasunori Mitsuda and Square-Enix, it’s about to get an orchestrated arrangement:
Renowned composer, Yasunori Mitsuda, best known for his work on Xenogears, Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross, is working on an orchestrated Xenogears music album for Square Enix. But wait! They want their fans to tell them which tracks to include…Presumably, Mitsuda wanted English-speaking fans to be aware of the soundtrack as well, as he tweeted on the matter in English.
Don’t look at me, I was sold before I heard about it! And while I’m not aware if/how English speakers can lend their voice to which tracks are included, I’m sure it can’t hurt to list my favorites here:
- “Dark Dawn” or “Light from the Netherworlds”
- “The One Who Is Torn Apart”
- “Steel Giant”
- “Star of Tears (Out Take)”
- “Small Two of Pieces ~Screeching Shards~”
- “Where the Eggs of Dreams Hatch”
- “Soaring the Skies”
- “Gathering Stars in the Night Sky”
Honestly though, I love ’em all and hope as many of them can be included as possible.
More as news becomes available. In the meantime, get chills listening to “Light From the Netherworlds.”
