The Messenger developer Sabotage Studio announced Chrono Trigger composer Yasunori Mitsuda will write music for the upcoming RPG, Sea of Stars.

Announced on Sabotage Studio’s Kickstarter page, Mitsuda-san will lend his prowess to the musical sounds of the upcoming RPG. “By contributing his legendary musical genius to the project, he will help convey the depth of this fantasy world’s story while ensuring its nostalgic roots are paid proper homage,” says Sabotage Studios. “Being such an inspiration for all of us, Mitsuda represents exactly what Sea of Stars needed to feel truly whole.”

The developers at Sabotage Studio aren’t the only people excited about the partnership. Mitsuda-san expresses his interest in Sea of Stars and applauding Sabotage Studio’s past work which integrates both classic and modern game design.

“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,” says Mitsuda-san. Please look forward to an exciting adventure.”

Mitsuda-san is not the only composer working on Sea of Stars. Rainbowdragoneyes, the person behind The Messenger‘s brilliant soundtrack, will also be lending his expertise.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Sea of Stars is inspired by RPGs from the 90s like Chrono Trigger. It features turn-based combat, a fully-explorable world, six playable characters, and a day/night cycle. The isn’t a specific launch date, but it is slated to launch sometime in 2022. We got to take a closer look at the upcoming title where Managing Editor Logan Moore said, “If there is one thing above all else that I came away impressed by after getting a deeper look at Sea of Stars, it’s just how polished the game already is.”

Personally, I am super excited about Sea of Stars. Not because I’m a big JRPG fan, but because Sabotage Studio’s first game was so good. The Messenger is not just one of my favorite games of the generation; it is an all-time favorite of mine. So, just about anything they release I will be very excited for.
