Rhythm Encounter 103 – Xeno Series Music Spotlight

Rhythm Encounter 103 Xeno Series Music Spotlight

The Xeno games do not make up a traditional series, with multiple sub-series and some games connected loosely and some more directly. But whether you favor Xenogears, Xenosaga, or Xenoblade, there’s no denying the games’ popularity in the RPG crowd. And for us on Rhythm Encounter, we have been enjoying the likes of Yasunori Mitsuda, Yuki Kajiura, Shinji Hosoe, ACE+, and many more talented composers’ works in these games for nearly 25 years. So please enjoy today’s Xeno-filled episode where we touch on every major game in the series (even as Mike asks where the Xenosaga: Pied Piper music is).

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Tyler Trosper, Gio Castillo, Patrick Gann; Edited by Jono Logan
