Rhythm Encounter 93 – Wild HEARTs

Rhythm Encounter 093 Wild HEARTs

As soon as we learned that the creators of the Wild ARMs and Shadow Hearts series were launching a Kickstarter for two new projects, Armed Fantasia and Penny Blood, we knew it was the perfect time to talk about the music of the teams’ legacy. Also, how else would we get away with combining the music of Wild ARMs and Shadow Hearts into a single episode? So sit back and take a musical journey with us across the wild west of Filgaia, France, Japan, and more, as we enjoy the music of Michiko Naruke, Yoshitaka Hirota, and Yasunori Mitsuda.

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Hilary Andreff, Wes Iliff, Tyler Trosper, Audra Bowling; Edited by Jono Logan
