Frenetic Dance (狂乱舞踏)

by wfgodbold

The most recent of the Tales of games, Tales of Graces F (the PS3 port and update of the Wii game), follows the adventures of Asbel and his friends as they explore their world and confront its origins.

While it has been announced that the game is currently being localized for American release, the only way (at this time) to play Tales of Graces is by importing the game from Japan.

Tales of Graces was the first game in the series to do away with the world map; as you move Asbel and his party from place to place, the field locations are all to scale with the rest of the world, and you never zoom out into a full world view (until you get the flying machine, and then when it’s zoomed out, you merely pick your destination on the map and then magically appear there).

Anyway, the game is much like Tales of Vesperia; I’m not going to rehash my thoughts on how well the game is done (suffice to say I like it even though I prefer Fujushima’s character designs to Inomata’s).

The following track plays during a boss fight towards the end of the game; I won’t say whose, as it would be spoileriffic.

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll have noticed that Motoi Sakuraba’s more recent compositions tend to be better than his earlier ones; Frenetic Dance is no exception.
