While not strictly related to the Seiken Densetsu series, it has a connection to one of our favourite composers.
Unraveled is an adventure RPG game currently seeking Kickstarter funding (at 7.4k our of 15k with 14 days to go at the time of writing). As with the trend of many KS games right now, it has a retro feel to it hearkening back to the days of Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger, but not only that, the soundtrack will feature collaborations from Secret of Mana composer Hiroki Kikuta. The current draft for the main theme can now be heard here in the embedded YT video.
I for one am backing this project, as it does look interesting, so check it out and see if it is your cup of tea or not. Otherwise, simply enjoy the music.

Back in August, Secret of Mana composer Hiroki Kikuta released Alphabet Planet, his second album, comprising of 2 discs packed with original material from the master himself. This completely escaped our radar for some bizarre reason until now, and has been pointed out to us by nick912012 on the Forum.
You can get the album over at VGM World for the modest price of 3000 yen (that’s about 29 dollars or 20 euros).
We’ll bring you more coverage on this album soon enough. Thanks again to Nick for the contribution.
Update: Listen to a sample from Kikuta’s homepage here!
Can definitely hear some familiar sounds and tunes in there. Colour of the Summer Sky is in there right at the start, for example. Thanks again Nick for this link.
