<- Is it cheating if I use the song icon from Meridian Dance? Oh well. Here's a bit of an unexpected cover from Legend of Mana: The Darkness Nova, which as far as I'm aware, plays during the battles with the Jewel Beast.
I'll be honest with you, I don't really know much about this game! This was the latest request list drawing winner on Patreon. Familiar with the game or not, this song and a lot of other songs from this game are fantastic. The soundtrack was composed by Yoko Shimomura, who I'm sure most of you are familiar with.
I do have at least one more song from the Mana games planned for this year, by the way, so there won't be another 3 year hiatus between Mana songs this time. Stay tuned! :)
