Boss Battles for the Soul pays homage to SNES boss music


If you’re a fan of SNES RPG music, than this will be right up your alley. Video game music aficionado Mark Reichwein is accepting donations for a Kickstarter project that sees him composing new boss themes to classic SNES RPGs in their original style.

The project, if successfully funded by Nov. 14, will result in a seven-track album comprised of new boss battle music done using the sounds and instruments of each respective SNES RPG, including titles like Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, Earthbound, Secret of Evermore and Super Mario RPG. Three backers who have pledged $50 to the project get their pick of which game Reichwein will compose a boss tune of.

At the time of this writing, the project has amassed $758 of its $1000 goal with twelve days to go. Original boss themes from Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger have already been released on YouTube. Be sure to check those out after the break, and give his Kickstarter page a visit.

If you enjoy RPG boss music as much as I do, then I think you’ll find this a most noble and passionate endeavor.
