Weekend NintyBeats — The Beautiful Night Time Adventure

The music of Nintendo games make them truly remarkable and memorable. To show our love of the music, every Friday we share a selection of tracks from various Nintendo titles, new and old.

In this week’s NintyBeats, we slapped some of the most beautiful RPG music in Nintendo’s history on to a page and told you to listen. We’re also giving special attention to night-time. We hope it’s grateful.


The map (& main) theme from Final Fantasy IV is one of the best pieces of overworld music from any RPG I’ve played. Its exciting, beautiful and adventurous — and doesn’t wear out its welcome with melodrama.


One of Generation IV’s neat touches was hidden in its soundtrack. Much of the game’s score actually had two subtly different arrangements — the version that played was based on the time of day. At night, the music is slower and more melancholy, supplying an unnecessary but brilliant way to absorb the player a little more.


Xenoblade Chronicles is another game that used this concept — but went even further. The night-time arrangements are particularly beautiful, and provide a distinctive counterbalance to the daytime tracks.

So that wraps up another week’s NintyBeats! I hope you enjoyed the choices this time.

If you would like to have a certain piece featured next week, please post it in the comments!
