Song of the Week: Phantasy Star Title Theme



I'm going to try out a weekly song posting of some underrated amazing video game music.

For week one, a Sega Master System classic and a really great theme that fits the game perfectly: The Phantasy Star Title Track. I'm playing Phantasy Star on the VC right now, and I'm going to be making a more in-depth post about it in a few hours.

This song reminds me of the Lufia menu theme because of the drums and happy synths.

Nice, only problem I have is how the bass is panned. With headphones this song doesn't sound so nice >_>

Hey 8bitcity!
I love your site. I'm a huge Retro Video Game fan(Mostly Genesis and Sega Master System).

You're weekly video game music is a good one. I love Phantasy Star.
I wouldn't say Phantasy Star was under rated. It was a well known title back in the day. The music in Phantasy Star is very cool. My favorite would be a particular tune for the tower dungeons. Good memories :)

And it might be fun to compare the original Title music to the Phantasy Star Generation 1 remake:

I recently finished the Sega Ages 2500 Phantasy Star Generation 1 remake on the PS2. I really enjoyed it.

If you're interest there's even an English fan translation for the game here:
