Original box artwork

Although it is usually considered part of the "Gaia trilogy", according to the producer of Enix USA[1] Soul Blazer is the prequel[2] of ActRaiser. Similar to the company's previous game ActRaiser, the player takes the role of a divine angel (or deity, or lesser-deity, or avatar) sent by a divinity, called Master, to destroy monsters and release the captured souls of a world's inhabitants.

Soul Blazer was scored by Yukihide Takekawa.
