True Gaming Song of the Week – July 20, 2008
Hello all its time for another Song of the Week and its yours truely White Mage Whitney with another pick. For my pick I went back to the days of the Super Nintendo which easily has some of the best soundtracks ever composed. One of my favorite games for the SNES is Secret of Mana which was put out by Sqauresoft. It was officially the second game in Seiken Densetsu series with the first being Final Fantasy Adventure. The thing that made the game so fun was the action based battle system. It was like combining the best of Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy into one great game.
With it being a Squaresoft title it should not shock anyone that it has a great soundtrack. It was composed by Hiroki Kikuta and was his first soundtrack. He has since composed soundtracks for other great games including this games sequel Seiken Densetsu 3 and the first game in the Shadow Hearts franchise Koudelka. The whole soundtrack of Secret of Mana is great but I had to choose just one song so I went with Tell a Strange Tale.
