Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon And The Blade Of Light (NES)
Opening Title, Victory Nears, Together We Ride
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light was the first game released in the Fire Emblem series. The game was never released outside of Japan, and it took another six games before Fire Emblem for the Gameboy Advance released elsewhere around the world.
Moments after the song begins, the opening track to the first Fire Emblem features the super iconic Fire Emblem melody. The series often stays true to its original soundtrack roots. Roots that grew from this first release.
This track is one of the more uplifting themes found in the game. The song is a map background theme and one of the few featured in the game.
Encounter, often known as ‘Together We Ride’ is yet another iconic Fire Emblem theme that is found in numerous games in the series, as well as some minor spin-offs such as Super Smash Bros. Melee. The song is easily the games most action-filled track.
