The 7th Saga is a Japanese role-playing game that released in 1993 for the Super Nintendo in Japan and North America.

The 7th Saga
This short track is the initial title screen song to the game. It features quite a soothing theme for an opening to a large adventure style game, that perhaps has more meaning to the player once they finish their initial journey through the game.

Overworld 1
This is one of the many Overworld, or background music themes, that are found in the game. The games soundtrack as a whole does a very good job at creating a unique sense of adventure in a fantasy style world, while maintaining a very individual style to its themes.

Overworld Battle
This tremendous action piece is the games standard battle theme. As opposed to the previous two songs, this one most certainly delivers a more intense and exciting theme with its brilliantly diverse melody and various other percussions and sounds.

Port City
This song accompanies the Port Town area of Bonro. Its another more calm song in the soundtrack, which is to be expected due to it's partnered setting.

Overworld 3
This song is another of the games Overworld themes. Just like many of the other songs found in the game, it has many soothing qualities with a mild focus on a breezy melody.
