Final Fantasy (WSC): Music
AirshipI never cared for this song much, but it's pretty good in FF1 WSC. The loud Airship-rotor-noises get a bit annoying though.
Battle ThemeEven if you were annoyed by hearing the Battle Theme in FF1 NES over and over and over... get this anyways. It's nowhere near as annoying as the NES version. Somehow, it seems livelier and more... inspiring.
Boss Theme (Fiends)This is yet another excellent new Boss Theme. This one only plays when fighting the Fiends. It's another remix of the normal Battle Theme (at least, part of it is). I really love these new boss themes. I'm sure you do too.
Boss Theme (Fiends, SECOND VERSION)I guess I have no ear for music, I never noticed there were TWO Fiend themes. Thanks to everyone who let me know. This sounds very similar to the other Fiend theme.
Boss Theme (Normal)This music plays when fighting a Boss (except a Fiend or Chaos; they have their own music). This is an EXCELLENT song. It's really good for the mood of fighting a boss. I believe it's a remix of the regular battle theme.
Castle ConeriaThis is the good old Castle Music. Not changed much from the NES version, except the quality, of course.
Chaos' ThemeThis music plays only when fighting Chaos. Yes, Chaos is cool enough that he gets his own theme music. This is a wonderful song.
Clinic ThemeIn FF1 WSC, this music plays when you enter a Clinic (in the Japanese FF1, they're actually temples. But whatyagonnado.) This song is just amazing. I can't even describe it. Just download it.
Dead MusicThis music brings back memories of the Ice Cave, for some reason... (he he he..) It's pretty sad-sounding. Very well done.
Dungeon ThemeThis song plays in the Marsh Cave and Mirage Tower. I admit, this was one of my least favorite songs in the NES version. But it's redone very well in the WSC version. It's fast-paced and more... harsh-sounding, than the other music, if that makes sense. (It probably doesn't. Just download it. :)
Ending ThemeThis is a shortened version of the Ending Theme. The WHOLE ending theme is 16+ minutes long. But it's only this song, plus the Prologue and Prelude. In the original NES version, only this part played when you beat the game. So I figure, this is good enough. This song is one of my favorites in the game; it's an outstanding song amongst a whole game of excellent music. What more can I say.
FanfareThis short (very short) fanfare plays when important things happen, such as receiving a quest item like the LUTE.
Gurgu VolcanoThis song plays in a bunch of dungeons, including Gurgu Volcano. I really like this song (but then again, I really like all the songs.)
Matoya's CaveThis is the wonderful song that plays in Matoya's Cave, and a lot of other places. Very good song.
Menu ScreenThis is a kind of bouncy sort of song, that plays when you look at the menu. It's quiet, and not too distracting, which is good, when you're playing the game and trying to think.
Minigame Theme MusicThis song plays when playing the minigame, and also during a couple cutscenes. It's a remix of the Castle Theme, I believe. It's lively and bouncy; you can't help but be cheered up by this song.
Opening ThemeWhen you first fire up FF1 WSC, a cool movie plays, showing the four lairs of the Fiends, and some special effects graphically showing the old FF1 line : The wind stops
PreludeThe wonderful Prelude, present in all FF's, originating in FF1, is back and better than ever. This is truly an excellent version of the Prelude. It does FF1 WSC justice.
Prologue (opening theme)I was really looking forward to hearing this song in FF1 WSC. It's always been my favorite song from Final Fantasy. I wasn't disappointed with this version; it is better than I could have imagined. It sounds somehow a bit sadder, and more wavery, if that makes any sense. JUST DOWNLOAD IT. It's amazing.
Sailing ShipThis is one of my least favorite songs. It's very well done, but I just don't like the melody. Whatyagonnado. Get it anyways.
Save MusicReally short music that plays when you save your game. (In FF1 WSC, you no longer need to hold RESET while turning power off. There is no RESET. :) )
Shop ThemeA nice remake of the old Shop Theme. This can get a tiny bit annoying, but since the shopping interface in FF1 WSC is redone, you won't spend as much time hearing this. Which is a good thing. This is still a good song.
Temple of FiendsA wonderful remake of the ToF theme from FF1 NES. This is one of the songs that sounds many times better in the WSC version. Make sure to get this one.
Temple of Fiends RevisitedThis song isn't too much different than the NES version. It's a wonderful dungeon theme, though. Very inspiring and epic-sounding.
The Floating CastleThis song, that plays in the Sky Castle only, definitely sounds futuristic, like it's meant to. It sets the mood well.
Town ThemeI love what they did with this song in FF1 WSC. It's one of the many songs that are ten times better than the NES version.
Victory FanfareI LOVE this fanfare. It sounds unbelievably better than the NES version. Even though it's only a couple seconds long, it really makes you proud to have won that battle.
World ThemeThe World Theme is very similar to the old NES version. It's still a great song.

Second Fiend Theme: BEST. SONG. EVER. (fromanythingthatisn'ttheNESversion).

I say this because it has that epic part in the middle where everything drops out and all that's left is this really cool, haunting version of the Prelude. Oh crap. Oh crap.

i like the minigame theme it is nice

Best rendition of the Gurgu Volcano sound ever.

Both Fiend themes are ridiculous in chiptune format. I approve.

Mar 05, 2010 06:40 PM PST

kinda has a classic quality to it. I also approve

The sound of the Wonderswan color is very bad, isn't it ?

Apr 06, 2010 06:39 PM PDT

no, not really

not great, but not bad

As one of the GBA?

Apr 14, 2010 04:46 PM PDT

I liked them both. WSC only had three volume setting, so I guess that would give the advantage to the GBA version.

At least the WSC music is better than the NES stuff... some of the nes stuff is good, but the sound hardware... ugh..

Apr 13, 2016 12:27 AM PDT

huh... I just took a listen to the 2nd fiend battle from the WSC version. its actually much deeper and more menacing sounding. quite an interesting distinction from the other versions where the way it opens is different
