After its Kickstarter debut, funding success, and stretch goal attainment, what could possibly be next for Sea of Stars? Well, the game has just recruited the main composer of one of its key inspirations – Yasunori Mitsuda of Chrono Trigger fame.

Mitsuda-san will be joining The Messenger’s composer, Eric W. Brown, to bring Sea of Stars’ world to life via music. Speaking on his involvement with the game, he had this to say:
“Without knowing exactly why, ‘I want to write music for this game’ was the feeling I had while seeing it convey the nostalgic golden age of the 90s. Although there are still many games being released with this classic style, I don’t think players are satisfied with just nostalgia. As seen in their previous game, by adding new systems and ideas to classic formulas, Sabotage Studio breathes fresh, new air into their work.”
“Impressed by the respect they show for past games while at the same time giving players new ways to have fun, I found myself wanting to make a game with everyone at Sabotage Studio. Please look forward to an exciting adventure.”
Alongside the Chrono games, other notable credits of Yasunori Mitsuda’s for Nintendo fans include the Xenoblade Chronicles series (as well as its predecessors Xenogears and Xenosaga), Kid Icarus Uprising, Super Smash Bros., and Mario Party.
