Best of Video Game Soundtracks: Secret of Mana

Secret of Mana is one of the most memorable games for the SNES. Easy gameplay, unique storyline, and a great presentation, Secret of Mana have drilled itself into the hearts of many gamers. But the number one thing that keeps gamers coming back for Secret of Mana is the music itself. The music from this gem is magical.

Fear of the Heavens/Title Theme
One of the most recognizable music in Secret of Mana, Fear of the Heavens is played at the title screen, foretelling what the game has in store for the player. Due to its popularity, Fear of the Heavens also has an orchestral version. I believe the orchestral version is the more powerful version, but due to nostalgia, many gamers prefer the 16bit version.



Danger AND Mana Beast Battle Theme
Both are epic pieces of music that really sets the mood for a boss battle.

I Won’t Forget
Maybe the saddest piece in Secret of Mana, I Won’t Forget is another version of Fear of the Heavens, but slower. This music piece leaves the player the memorable adventure they experienced in Secret of Mana. If anymore is said, the story would be spoiled.
