Square Enix has uploaded a new official cover on their music YouTube channel. Shuto Nakagawa arranged and performed “Frog’s Theme” from Chrono Trigger on piano, initially composed by Yasunori Mitsuda. Additionally, Junichiro”ojjy”Ojim recorded and mixed the performance.
Frog is a popular and somewhat tragic character in Chrono Trigger, with this piano cover befitting the graveness of his continued plight that permeates his existence. While the original song has a clear sense of triumph, this alteration in instrumentation gives the track a fitting sense of melancholy.
You can listen to the piano cover of “Frog’s Theme” from Chrono Trigger below:
