'Ever Promise' Ever Promise 4:23. Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3 composer Hiroki Kikuta The scores for 1993's, originally released as Seiken Densetsu 2 in Japan, and 1995's were both composed. Kikuta was originally chosen for Secret of Mana after Kenji Ito, who was originally slated for the project, was forced to drop it due to other demands on his time such as the soundtrack to. It was Kikuta's first video game score. Both games were produced for the. Despite difficulties in dealing with the hardware limitations, Kikuta tried to express in the music of Secret of Mana two 'contrasting styles', namely himself and the game. The purpose of this was to create an original score which would be neither nor standard.
Kikuta worked on the music for the two games mostly by himself, spending nearly 24 hours a day in his office, alternating between composing and editing to create an immersive three-dimensional sound. Rather than create versions of his compositions and rely on the sound engineers to create the sampled instruments (like most game music composers of the time), Kikuta made his own samples that matched the hardware capabilities of the Super NES so that he would know exactly how the pieces would sound on the system's hardware instead of having to deal with audio hardware differences between the original composition and the Super NES. Kikuta considers the score for Secret of Mana his favorite creation. His compositions for Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3 were partly inspired by natural landscapes, as well as music from Bali. In addition to the soundtrack albums for the two games, 1995, Kikuta released an experimental album of from the two installments, titled Secret of Mana +, which features one 50-minute-long track. Secret of Mana [ ] Secret of Mana Original Soundtrack by Hiroki Kikuta Released August 6, 1993 August 25, 1995 October 1, 2004,,,,, Length 1: 06: 01 NTT Publishing/Square NTT Publishing (reprint) Secret of Mana Original Soundtrack is a soundtrack album of music from Secret of Mana, released as Seiken Densetsu 2 Original Sound Version in Japan; the releases are identical aside from the packaging and localized English song titles.
Secret of Mana was one of the first soundtrack releases in North America for the North American version of a game. The soundtrack was composed by Hiroki Kikuta.
The soundtrack's music covers both 'ominous' and 'light-hearted' tracks, and is noted for its use of bells and 'dark, solemn pianos'. The title track to the game, 'Fear of the Heavens', was designed by Kikuta to sync up with the title screen as it slowly faded in due to hardware limitations; at the time trying to match the audio and visual effects in a game was rare. Kikuta also started the track off with a 'whale noise', rather than a traditional 'ping', in order to try to 'more deeply connect' the player with the game from the moment it started up; getting the sound to work with the memory limitations of the Super NES system was a difficult technical challenge. The album covers 44 tracks and has a duration of 1:06:01. It was published by NTT Publishing/Square on August 6, 1993 with the catalog number N25D-019, and reprinted by NTT Publishing on August 25, 1995 and October 1, 2004 with the catalog numbers PSCN-5030 and NTCP-5030. The album was well received by reviewers such as Eve C.
Of RPGFan, who called it 'a beautifully composed CD' and said that it was one of the best soundtracks of any Super NES game. She said that the largest complaint with the album was the synthetic quality of the music necessitated by the Super NES's sound hardware, though she noted that the music pushed the limits of the system's hardware further than any other Super NES game. Jason Walton of RPGFan agreed, saying that 'the music is composed extremely well, full of variety', though he did not like that the tracks were kept short instead of looping in order to fit all of the songs on one disc. Damian Thomas, in his review of the North American version of the album, also noted that the music was impressive for a Super NES game, and recommended the album as worth hunting for., in an interview with Kikuta, described the music of Secret of Mana as leaving 'a lasting impression on international audiences'.
Named the title track as the seventh best RPG title track in a 2006 feature, calling it 'soft' and 'magical', and saying that Kikuta 'uses a mix of upbeat pipes and tinkering piano keys to bring the world of Mana to life'.

Secret of Mana+ [ ] Secret of Mana+ by Hiroki Kikuta Released October 29, 1993 October 25, 1995 October 1, 2004,,,, Length 49: 28 NTT Publishing/Square Square Enix (reprint) Secret of Mana+ is an arranged album of music from Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3. The music was composed and arranged by Hiroki Kikuta. The album is composed of a single track titled 'Secret of Mana' that has a duration of 49:28.
This track incorporates themes from the music of Secret of Mana as well as a few themes from Seiken Densetsu 3, which was still under development at the time. The style of the album is described as 'experimental', using 'strange sounds' such as waterfalls, bird calls, cell phone sounds, and 'typing' sounds. The music has also been described as covering many different musical styles, such as 'Debussian impressionist styles, his own heavy electronic and synth ideas, and even ideas of popular musicians'.
It was published by NTT Publishing/Square on October 29, 1993 with the catalog number N30D-021, and reprinted by NTT Publishing on August 25, 1995 and October 1, 2004 with the catalog numbers PSCN-5031 and NTCP-5031. Daniel Kalabakov, in his review for RPGFan, said that while popular opinion of the album was split between those who liked and extremely disliked the album, he personally 'loved' it. He praised it for being an 'unorthodox arrangement' and trying something new rather than being merely a piano or orchestral arranged album, the most common types. Chris Greening of Square Enix Music Online had similar feelings about the album, praising the wide range of styles and sounds and calling it an 'unparalleled achievement'. Simon of Square Enix Music Online added that it was 'refreshing to see there is no compromise' between Kikuta's artistic vision and more traditional commercial styles. Legend of Mana and Heroes of Mana composer Yoko Shimomura, released for the in 1999, features music composed.
She had previously composed for several Square games including and and had originally joined Square for the purpose of composing music for fantasy role-playing games. She was initially hesitant to compose for the Mana series, as she felt that it was so associated with the music of Ito and Kikuta. In 2002, Shimomura said that of all her compositions to date, she considered the soundtrack to Legend the one that best expresses herself. Shimomura claims that she prefers 'passionate music that comes from the heart', and that she has to 'feel the emotions of a piece in the extreme before I am able to write' the music by putting herself in the same mood as the piece is supposed to be in. Legend of Mana featured the first vocal track of any Mana game, 'Song of Mana', which also serves as the game's opening theme. It was sung by Annika Ljungberg, who was chosen by Shimomura because she 'wanted to stay away from working with someone popular that everyone already knows'.
After hearing a sample of Annika's music, she flew to Sweden 'straight away' to do an analog recording of the song. Four of the game's tracks were released as part of, an album highlighting the composer's work: 'Legend of MANA ~Title Theme~', 'Hometown Domina', 'Colored Earth', and 'Bejeweled City Ruined'.
Shimomura carefully chose the songs to be included on the album based on their apparent popularity among fans and how suitable they are for orchestra. In addition to the soundtrack album, a promotional album of music from Legend of Mana was produced and was included with preorders of the game in North America.

World of Mana [ ] In 2005, Square Enix announced plans for World of Mana, a new series of titles in the Mana franchise, whose titles would span more than the original series., the creator of the Mana series, decided even before he worked on 2002's about creating new Mana games, but first wanted to create a goal for the new series, and eventually decided to make it about exploring how to add 'the feeling of touch' to a game.
After he saw the game at in 2003, he felt that its physics engine was the one he needed. World of Mana went on to comprise four new games in addition to the remake of Final Fantasy Adventure; Koichi Ishii served as director or producer for all of them as he had for the previous games in the series. In 2006, a Mana installment for the was considered but did not enter development. In April 2007, a month after the release of the final game of the World of Mana, Ishii left Square Enix to lead his own development company, named; no further games in the series have been announced since. Three of the new games of World of Mana sparked soundtrack releases, with each composed by a different artist or group of artists:, released in 2006 for the,, released in 2006 for the, and, released for the Nintendo DS in 2007.
The music of Dawn of Mana also formed the basis of a promotional album included with preorders of the game in Japan, while the music of Yoko Shimomura for Seiken Densetsu: Friends of Mana, a 2006 for Japanese never saw any album releases. Children of Mana [ ] Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana Original Soundtrack by Kenji Ito, Masaharu Iwata, Takayuki Aihara Released May 9, 2006 Video game soundtrack Length 1: 24: 13 Square Enix Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana Original Soundtrack is a soundtrack album of music from Children of Mana, known as Seiken Densetsu DS: Children of Mana in Japan. The soundtrack was composed by Kenji Ito,, and Takayuki Aihara, and covers a range of musical styles including rock and roll, jazz, and classical orchestra. Ito served as the lead composer.
The instruments themselves, however, due to the limitations of the Nintendo DS hardware, have been described as not being 'especially aesthetic or realistic'. The soundtrack features 33 tracks on 2 discs and spans a duration of 1:24:13. It was published by Square Enix on May 9, 2006 on the Japanese, but has not been released as a physical album. Chris Greening of Square Enix Music Online, in his review of the album, reacted positively to the score, calling it a 'colourful, diverse, and rich experience overall'. He called the tracks by Iwata and Aikara the 'core' of the album, saying that the tracks by Ito felt 'banal' and 'formulaic' which he attributed to Ito being too overworked to focus on the album.
RPGamer, in their review of the game, called the music 'pretty nice'. They noted that the music did not stand out as much as the visuals of the game, though they still 'conveyed the theme', and that the 'town' tracks were in their opinion weaker than the rest of the soundtrack.

Dawn of Mana [ ] Seiken Densetsu 4 Original Soundtrack -Sanctuary- by Kenji Ito, Tsuyoshi Sekito, Masayoshi Soken, Hiroki Kikuta, Yoko Shimomura, Ryuichi Sakamoto Released January 24, 2007 Video game soundtrack Length 4: 19: 41 Square Enix Seiken Densetsu 4 Original Soundtrack -Sanctuary- is a soundtrack album of music from Dawn of Mana, known as Seiken Densetsu 4 in Japan. The soundtrack was composed by Kenji Ito,,, Hiroki Kikuta, Yoko Shimomura, and, with many of the tracks composed by one artist arranged by another. The styles portrayed on the soundtrack cover 'soft, heartwarming tunes', fast-paced 'rock and roll style' tracks, and 'dark and dramatic tunes', while the arranged songs that appear on the fourth disc of the soundtrack album are split between orchestral and rock and roll styles.
The theme song to the game, 'Dawn of Mana', was composed by -winning composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, and was inspired by the image of the Mana tree shown at the title screen. The composition of the soundtrack was done under a great deal of time pressure; Soken has said that he composed 32 tracks in 52 days at a breakneck pace, and Sekito has said that Ito conducted the orchestral recordings while ill to make the deadline. The soundtrack features 106 tracks on 4 discs and spans a duration of 4:19:41. It was published by Square Enix on January 24, 2007 with the catalog numbers SQEX-10083~6.
Dennis Rubinshteyn of RPGFan was pleased by the soundtrack, saying that the music met his high expectations for what he called the 'only redeeming quality left' to the series since Legend of Mana. Summing the album up as a 'solid soundtrack with great songs and a lot of variety', he named Sekito's tracks as the least appealing on the soundtrack, causing some parts of the album as a whole to be 'hit or miss'. Bryan Matheny of Square Enix Music Online held the opposite opinion, calling Sekito's pieces what 'made this work bearable' and saying that he 'just can't get into this soundtrack', especially the first three discs, which were full of 'boring and underdeveloped' tracks. Chris Greening of Square Enix Music Online's review, however, was more in line with RPGFan's, wherein he praised the 'diversity' and 'glorious spectrum of emotion' found in the soundtrack. He cited the synthesizer operation as a weak point as well as the order of the tracks, and singled out Sekito's tracks as 'forgettable' and 'repetitive'.

Despite the many composers of the full soundtrack, the five songs on Breath were all composed and arranged by Kenji Ito. Three of the songs, 'Breath of MANA', 'Unforgotten Memories', and 'Rising Sun (piano solo ver.)', did not appear on the full soundtrack album. The songs on the disc are 'gentle melodies' using orchestra and piano.
The five songs cover a duration of 13:41. The disc was published by Square Enix on December 21, 2006. A review of the album by Dennis Rubinshteyn of RPGFan called it a 'good showcase' of the strengths of the full album, which were in his opinion the tracks by Ito. He felt that the tracks on the single were 'superb', and said that it was a shame that two of the tracks were not found on the soundtrack album.

Heroes of Mana [ ] Seiken Densetsu: Heroes of Mana Original Soundtrack by Yoko Shimomura Released April 18, 2007 Video game soundtrack Length 2: 24: 28 Square Enix Seiken Densetsu: Heroes of Mana Original Soundtrack is a soundtrack album of music from Heroes of Mana, known as Seiken Densetsu: Heroes of Mana in Japan. The soundtrack was composed by Yoko Shimomura. The musical style of the tracks is primarily orchestral, with the addition of a strong piano and drums that sometimes verge on a more tribal rhythm. The soundtrack features 49 tracks on 2 discs and spans a duration of 2:24:28.
Three of the game's tracks were released as part of Drammatica: The Very Best Works of Yoko Shimomura, an arranged album highlighting the composer's work: 'To the Heroes of Old ~Opening Theme from Heroes of Mana~', 'The Way the Heart Is' (as 'Tango Appassionata'), and 'The Tale Told by the Wind ~Ending Theme from Heroes of Mana~'. Shimomura carefully chose the songs to be included on the album based on their apparent popularity among fans and how suitable they are for orchestra.
The Heroes of Mana soundtrack was published by Square Enix on April 18, 2007 with the catalog numbers SQEX-10095~6. Denis Rubinshteyn, in his review of the album, said that while the game itself was poor, 'the music is a treat'.
Calling the music 'solid' and 'enjoyable', he highlighted Shimomura's use of drums and variations on themes as particularly worthy of praise. Don Kotowski of Square Enix Music Online agreed, saying that Square Enix 'made the right decision' in asking Shimomura to compose the soundtrack, as she was able to 'capture the spirit of the Mana series extremely well'. He singled out the 'battle tracks and event themes' as the weakest tracks and 'The Tale Told by the Wind' and the final battle' as some of the best.

These included several arranged albums, as well as a box set of every soundtrack album from the series plus Let Thoughts Ride on Knowledge and Secret of Mana+. The twenty-disc set, entitled Seiken Densetsu Music Complete Book, was released on September 14, 2011. It includes music composed by Kenji Ito, Nobuo Uematsu, Hiroki Kikuta, Yoko Shimomura, Masaharu Iwata, Takayuki Aihara, Tsuyoshi Sekito, Masayoshi Soken, and Ryuichi Sakamoto. The album has a total length of 19:35:19. Re:Birth [ ] Re:Birth/Seiken Densetsu Kenji Ito Arrange Album by Released October 19, 2011 Video game soundtrack Length 45: 06 Square Enix As a part of the anniversary celebration, Square Enix released an album of arrangements of music from the series, Re:Birth/Seiken Densetsu Kenji Ito Arrange Album.
The album features ten arrangements by Kenji Ito of music he composed for Final Fantasy Adventure, Sword of Mana, Children of Mana, and Dawn of Mana. Six tracks are from the original game, two from Dawn, and one each from the other two games. The album was published by Square Enix on October 19, 2011, with a duration of 45:06. The arrangements cover a wide variety of genres, from vocal and chamber music to techno and dubstep. The album was originally planned to be followed soon after by two more similar albums, one each from Hiroki Kikuta and Yoko Shimamura, but those albums were never released. Patrick Gann of RPGFan felt that the album's tracks were 'hit-or-miss', containing some stellar arrangements mixed in with lackluster ones. He recommended it to any collector of Mana music.
Jayson Napolitano of Original Sound Version was more complimentary towards the album, enjoying many of the tracks that Gann did not, though he too was not as impressed by the Dawn of Mana arrangements.

Rise of Mana [ ] Seiken Densetsu: Rise of Mana Original Soundtrack by,,,, Yasuhiro Yamanaka, and Released April 23, 2014 Length 1: 07: 04 Square Enix Music In 2014, Square Enix released Rise of Mana, a free-to-play action role-playing game for and. The music of Rise of Mana was composed by a group of different composers: the majority of the music was handled.
In addition to Sekito, the soundtrack was also contributed to by three previous Mana composers: ( Final Fantasy Adventure, Children of Mana, Dawn of Mana), ( Secret of Mana, Seiken Densetsu 3) and ( Legend of Mana, Heroes of Mana). Also joining the team was sound engineer Yasuhiro Yamanaka. In all, 21 out of the 28 composed pieces were done by Sekito. Ito, Kikuta, Shimomura and Yamanaka each contributed one track. The soundtrack featured an arrangement for of 'Rising Sun', the series' main theme. Yamanaka acted as sound director, while poro@lier created the piano arrangements for both 'Rising Sun' and the game's theme song.
The game's theme song, 'Believe in the Spirit', was composed, written and sung by Japanese singer-songwriter. Prior to coming on board, she had little knowledge of the Mana series. As with her previous compositions for video games, Kokia tried to get a feel for the game's atmosphere before starting, either through playing the game directly or looking at behind-the-scenes material related to the game's world. With 'Believe in the Spirit', she worked to create a song that would appeal to both players and the production team. The track was performed using strings, a tin whistle, an acoustic guitar and percussion. The arrangement was done.
Seiken Densetsu: Rise of Mana Original Soundtrack was released on April 23, 2014 through Square Enix's music label. Andrew Barker of RPGFan was cautiously positive about the album: he described 'Believe in the Spirit' as being 'hit-or-miss' for different listeners while evoking memories of earlier Mana games. The rest of the soundtrack was generally praised: the first half's restful melodies were the stand-out tracks and said to be the strongest, while the later upbeat tracks were praised for their various energizing qualities. Some tracks, such as 'The Drip Drip Drip of Memory', being fairly weak and forgettable.Barker generally compared the music to that of, recommending it for fans of the latter and finishing that the album was generally good despite some unmemorable pieces.
Chris Greening of Video Game Music Online gave the album a 2.5-star rating: he was most positive about the tracks from the guest composers like Ito and Shimomura. While he praised Sekito for moving away from his traditional musical style, he felt that the result was fairly mixed, with some tracks lacking the proper emotional drive and others 'falling flat'. 'Believe in the Spirit' was praised for avoiding J-pop elements and sticking with its Celtic style, being favorably compared to the theme songs of. Overall, Green felt that, while it had good production value and was substantially better than other mobile game soundtracks, but lacked the emotional impact of previous Mana titles in the majority of its tracks. Many reviewers of the game also praised the soundtrack. Track list No. Title Japanese title Length 1.
