On October 14, Square Enix and Yasunori Mitsuda, primary composer of Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross, released a new album of rearranged music from the games. The Chrono Trigger & Chrono Cross Arrange Album: To Far Away Times album featured new arrangements of 10 songs, with Lara Shigihara, Sarah Àlainn, and Koko Komine providing vocals for “Time’s Scar,” “Radical Dreamers,” “Schala’s Theme,” “Corridors of Time,” “On the Other Side,” and “To Far Away Times.” To promote this album, Mitsuda participated in a NicoNico livestream where he performed three songs from the series, two of which appeared on the album.

 

Here’s “Schala’s Theme.” Shigihara does not appear in this performance.

 

 

This is the accoustic rendition of “Wind Scene.”

 

 

And this is “Epilogue: To My Dear Friends.”

 

 

The full Chrono Trigger & Chrono Cross Arrange Album: To My Dear Friends album is immediately available. In addition to the tracks mentioned above, it also includes “The Frozen Flame,” “Marbule,” and “The Bend of Time.”
