Rhythm Encounter 136 – Same Name Game

Rhythm Encounter 136 - Kingdom Hearts, Paradise Killer, Deltarune artwork

We’re trying something new here on Rhythm Encounter. While there is no end to the variety of RPG music out there, sometimes we spot similar song titles on different soundtracks, which gave us an idea. For this episode, each panelist chose a pairing of two (near) identical track names from different games, so we could compare and contrast each version. As we learned, this is a topic that could repeat, as there’s no shortage of potential songs that fit this theme. Give it a listen and let us know what pairings you have discovered!

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Audra Bowling, Gio Castillo, Tin Manuel; Edited by Paul Dennis
