Rhythm Encounter 132 – Remasterpiece Theatre

Rhythm Encounter 132 Remasterpiece Theatre art of Xenoblade Chronicles, Persona 3, Final Fantasy V, Link's Awakening

It’s hard to go a few months without a remaster of a beloved RPG gracing our physical or virtual shelves, but when some of those are the quality of the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series or the recent Persona 3 Reload, we aren’t complaining. This age of remasters also means updated or rearranged music is part of the package, so today we’re showcasing some stellar new takes on music for eight RPG remasters released in recent years.
