One of JRPG’s most celebrated composers is lending his talents to Edge of Eternity.


Yasunori Mitsuda will provide the score for crowdfunded JRPG Edge of Eternity, developer Midgar Studio has announced.

Mitsuda’s credits includes Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Xenosaga, Soul Sacrifice, Kid Icarus: Uprising and many more.

“I’ll take part as a music composer, looking forward to create music for such an epic perspective, in a world which I really love,” Mitsuda said.

“I’m sure the game will be a great work with a collaboration between French and Japanese creators.”

Edge of Eternity, for those who came in late, is inspired by RPGs like Final Fantasy 7. Set in space with a steampunk aesthetic, it’s being put together by an international team, and is coming to Linux, Mac, PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with cross-save expected between all platforms.

It originally hit Kickstarter in September 2013 but failed to generate enough interest to be successful. A second crowdfunding campaign will being on February 15.
