PSA: If you aren’t spending $60 on Balan Wonderworld, you can at least listen to the mini soundtrack for free

Free is good

Balan Wonderworld is out, and the reception has been…interesting, to say the least.

While it’s extremely clunky and has myriad design issues, I think most people will agree that the soundtrack rips. It feels like a true AAA score, with a full orchestra and bolstered by several collaborations, including the artist Marasy.

Thankfully, Square Enix put out a free “mini album” for the game that you can listen to for free. It consists of five tracks, all of which are on Spotify. You can also listen to a few beautiful piano tracks performed live by Marasy below.

I can’t stress enough how great they are, and it’s a shame that the game didn’t turn out as well as it could have. The second track in particular wouldn’t feel out of place in a Lupin the Third anime film, and reminds me heavily of some of the more memorable game scores in recent years, like Sega’s Rhythm Thief.

However this game’s legacy ends up, I bet a lot of people will be talking about the soundtrack for years to come. Expect our review of Balan Wonderworld from CJ very soon.
