60: Square Over There

The 16-bit era of Squaresoft RPGs helped teach a generation of gamers what this style of game could be. But as celebrated as titles like Final Fantasy, Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger were, their fans outside Japan missed out on a slew of others. This episode is a musical sampler of the titles that came out for the Super Famicom but not the Super NES: Romancing SaGa, Bahamut Lagoon, Front Mission, Treasure of the Rudras, Treasure Hunter G, Alcahest and Live a Live.

If this is your jam, check out the Live a Live episode, the Seiken Densetsu 3 episode and the RPG overworld megamix episode.
