Are you like me? Do you get a little misty eyed when you hear Schala's theme? A swell of nostalgia when the violin from Chrono Cross swells? Well boy howdy, this is the mixtape for you!


Yasunori Mitsuda's music set the tone for so much of gaming in my youth: Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Chrono Cross. His music is so good that I'll still go back and listen to soundtracks he did to games I don't even like any more! So this week on the Kotaku Mix Tape, We're devoting giving a hats off to a man who worked himself sick making some of the best game music out there.

Also, for any Chrono fans out there: Check out the Front Mission Gun Hazard soundtrack he did with Uematsu if you haven't. It's kind of fantastic.

The List:
Scars of Time - Chono Cross
Trial Zone - Front Mission Gun Hazard
Lost Pieces - Chrono Cross
Village of the Dog God - Shadow Hearts: Covenant
Schala's Theme - Chrono Trigger
Albedo's Theme - Xenosaga
Distant Promise - Xenogears
