30-Day Video Game Music Challenge – Day 5
Day 5 – Hub World or Overworld Music
Chrono Cross / Dream of the Shore Bordering Another World
Composer: Yasunori Mitsuda
Okay, this one isn’t even fair. No other game even had a chance to compete with this song from Chrono Cross, and no developer has dared to try and outdo it since. This is the absolute pinnacle of overworld tracks, objectively speaking.
Joking aside, today’s category is one where my choice of song came to mind instantly. Chrono Cross has one of the most stunningly gorgeous soundtracks of all time, and this track makes for a fantastic showcase for it. It’s the type of song that you can show people who don’t normally play video games, and they probably won’t even believe that it came from a video game.
