@cursedblessing of the blog zuckerl & zynismen supported #MitsudaMarch by playing through Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter for the PlayStation 2. While the game was composed by Hitoshi Sakamoto, Mitsuda served as the sound producer of the game.
Speaking of Xenogears, Nitro of the M Disk Playlist (hi) played through Xenogears for #MitsudaMarch. He started streaming the game on Twitch in December, hoping to beat the game before the end of March. It was close, but for the first time in his life, he managed to beat the game.
Twitch streamer Zokubun contributed to #MitsudaMarch with her streams of Graffiti Kingdom, and 10,000 Bullets. I got to see most of the Graffiti Kingdom stream, and it definitely looked like fun. I missed out on 10,000 Bullets. Hopefully that stream was a success as well!
Geek to Geek Media's capsulejay played through the Episode Ignis DLC, of Final Fantasy XV (which became available on Xbox Game Pass right at the start of the month), which was composed by Mitsuda. And he recently started playing through Secret of Mana. Composed by Hiroki Kukuta, with sound design by Mitsuda. Secret of Mana was one of the Squaresoft games he worked on before he became a composer. And speaking of Geek to Geek Media, check out their Discord. You never know when capsulejay will find inspiration from a theme to create a tournament for their e-sports league. Like the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate one set up for #MitsudaMarch, because Mitsuda was one of the many composers that contributed to the series since Brawl. So why not a Smash tournament?
@OhaiKrikket of Nerd Girl Thoughts played through mobile game Another Eden: The Cat Beyond Time and Space. Based on her review, it looked like she had fun playing it, despite some tedious grinding. It's a free to play game though, just a heads up for those who may be curious. Glad you enjoyed it, and I hope the Community Game Along continues to lead you to more interesting games!
Artist, and Chic Pixel representative @NealAkuma played through the first Shadow Hearts game. There was excitement within the Chic Pixel community at the thought of Shadow Hearts being represented, as it is a series that isn't as widely recognizable as it should be. So thank you @NealAkuma for adding Shadow Hearts to the official list of #MitsudaMarch games!
capsulejay took advantage of the fact that Yasunori Mitsuda contributed to the score of the Smash Bros. series starting with Brawl by hosting a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament as part of the Geek to Geek Media's E-Sports league. And that's the kind of thing you can expect from capsulejay as the event organizer of the Community Game Along. Some themes, such as this one, will have the one game that meets the theme criteria that a tournament can be hosted around.
Finally, to celebrate five years of the M Disk Playlist, and Chrono Trigger's 25th anniversary (the main motivator for this theme) a special video was released for the special occasion. It's a video updated version of his first episode of the M Disk Playlist Podcast. And since the subject of the episode was Yasunori Mitsuda, it ended up being a perfect fit for #MitsudaMarch.
This month's theme is brought to you by the winner of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament mentioned above, @mdiskplaylist
