96: Bravely Default 1.0

Released in 2009 for the Nintendo DS, Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light is the game that ultimately ended up leading to Bravely Default in 2012. And while Bravely Default improved upon the core mechanics in almost every way, there’s a certain charm to 4 Heroes of Light — and that includes a soundtrack by Naoshi Mizuta. The music mixes the best of what the Nintendo DS could do at the time along with a nifty, chipune-y throwback style. And that makes all the sense in the world, because this game is in many ways a throwback to the early days of the Square RPG.
