Episode 5 – Getting a Life with Dusklight In this episode, bedroth and Shootkapow are joined by a special guest, Dusklight, who brings with her our theme for this week: the soundtrack to her favorite game, Fantasy Life. Fantasy Life is an adventure RPG/life sim developed by Level 5 and published worldwide by Nintendo in 2014 for the 3DS (originally published by Level 5 in Japan in 2012). The game was composed in its entirety by Nobuo Uematsu. We hope you enjoy this wide range of very good music from our first soundtrack showcase. The names of these songs are varied depending on what source you use. The names below are from the official soundtrack, according to VGMDB, except for track 8, Divine Power, which is from the game's DLC. If we referred to the song by a different name in the recording, the name we mentioned is in parentheses.
