Here's how each monthly feature will go: I'll have the title of the song, along with the song itself for you to enjoy. Underneath, I will describe what this song means to me and how it affects me, plus I'll add in any fun facts about the piece.
For the remainder of December, we will be featuring "The Savior's Words ~Christmas in Nova Chrysalia~"
(¯`·-..· The Savior's Words ~Christmas in Nova Chrysalia~ ·..-·´¯)
A remaster of the original heard from a street musician in the game, this version takes on a gentle holiday feel while still maintaining its simplistic melody.
