Sheexy tipped me off on this one after finding an auction on Yahoo.co.jp, and after a quick search, it turns out that an official album is on the way from the hands of Kenji Ito.
Re:Birth/聖剣伝説 伊藤賢治アレンジアルバム, will be hitting stores on October the 19th to celebrate 20 years of Seiken Densetsu, and will consist of a series of tracks originally composed by Kenji Ito, arranged by… Kenji Ito. It will apparently cover a variety of styles, and although the full track list has not been released yet, it will include the following:
Rising Sun (No, really, ya think?)
Mana’s Mission (SD1)
In Search of the Holy Sword (SD1)
Final Battle (SD1)
The Fool’s Dance (SD4)
The Endless Dream (SD4)
It will be available for the price of 2,500 yen from Amazon.co.jp and The Square Enix e-Store. A sample is available here of the track that includes, are we at all surprised, Rising Sun.
The CD will also be included in the Box Set due to hit stores around the same time for 21,000 yen.

It seems that I am on fire today. Dawn of Mana is brought back online too. I think I should take a break for today. Adding pages and go through them is tedious.

My updating streak isn’t completely dead, it’s just on life support at the moment.
I went ahead and added two new sections to the Merchandise Section.
Now you can see all the Dawn of Mana and general World of Mana merchandise that is out there for you to collect.
All that is left is for me to add in Sword of Mana and Legend of Mana, which is going to be a lot of fun because those two games have the most merchandise associated with them. Especially LoM, that update is gonna take a good month by itself to complete.

I decided to do something a little different for today’s Mana Music Monday update.
Here for your enjoyment is the staff roll for Dawn of Mana. Don’t worry if you haven’t played the game yet, there aren’t any spoilers in the video just awesome visuals and music.
The two tracks featured here are “The Endless Dream” and “A Legend Forever” by Kenji Ito. These are two of my favorite tracks from the series. “A Legend Forever” dates back to the good old days of Final Fantasy Adventure. “The Endless Dream” stems from “Tale of the Distant Sun” from Children of Mana. It reminds me of a mix between “Rising Sun” and “A Legend Forever” and the vocals harken back to the arranged version of “Mission of Mana” from the Seiken Densetsu – Let Thoughts Ride on Knowledge album.
Anyways, just sit back and enjoy the fun visuals while following the elementals around.
Yarn and felt never looked so awesome.
If you missed all the names you can check them out on the Dawn of Mana Staff Roll page that Kassidy made a while back.

Head over to the Dawn of Mana Soundtrack Page and you’ll find that I’ve gone through and added where each of the tracks can be found in the game.
Right now it is a little bit rough, so I’ll go back and fix a few things I am sure. There are just so many tracks in this game!
Most of the cutscene music tracks are giving me trouble because I watched them the first time I played through, and I haven’t been watching them since then because the story is just too painful to put up with again.
At least the gameplay is fun.

Ever wanted to know who the Kenji Ito’s Piano Tuner from Yamaha was while he was contributing to the Dawn of Mana soundtrack? Yes, even Masanori Hanaoka is listed in the Dawn of Mana Staff Roll, which is now available here at Seikens.
Also, the Secret of Mana Staff Roll has been updated with the German version staff.

Rush, Rush, Rush!
Alrighty, I rush, rush, rushed to make sure that we were early with todays Mana Music Monday. While I was away in Japan the update kept being late, haha. So anyways, today we’ve got “Rush, Rush, Rush” from Dawn of Mana up for download. I have no idea where the music is used though, I haven’t had a chance to even touch Dawn of Mana yet… I’ve been rush, rush, rushing too much to get unpacked and settled back in now that I’m back home. I’ve also been trying to rush, rush, rush to get some of my new ideas ready for the site.
This song is pretty fun, it’s really upbeat and it reminds me of outerspace?
So anyways, I’m gonna go rush, rush, rush some more or something, expect some new stuff soon, soon, soon!
