Episode 12 Final Fantasy v Legend of Zelda

In our most ambitious episode yet, we compare the music from two epic Japanese game series, Final Fantasy and the Legend of Zelda.

To narrow it down (slightly) we concentrate on Final Fantasy VII (1997), music by Nobuo Uematsu and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998) music by Koji Kondo.
