A Desolate World
"A Desolate World", also called "Ruined World" (荒れ果てた世界}, Arehateta Sekai?), is a track composed by Yasunori Mitsuda for the game Chrono Trigger. It is the first track on the second disk from the original soundtrack. As the third world map theme for Chrono Trigger, it plays during the Future. The title, "A Desolate World" perfectly describes the decayed state of the land, the lack of foliage across all continents, the imminent and everlasting snowstorm, and the corroding domes that were once shimmering metropolises. The song plays within Arris Dome, Bangor Dome, Trann Dome, Proto Dome, and the Hallowed Falls of the Dimensional Vortex (exclusively in the DS release).
