BGMania: A Video Game Music Podcast

Dragon Quest I, II, & III

January 1, 2020

Episode #130 of BGMania. As mentioned at the end of last week's episode, we're kicking of 2020 and the New Year by making things right and taking a dive into a series we keep meaning to highlight but never end up doing, Dragon Quest! One of Bryan's all-time favorite JRPG franchises, he and Frank explore the wonderful Koichi Sugiyama compositions from the original NES Trilogy on today's podcast, back when it was still known as Dragon Warrior here in North America. Enjoy the show!
