Those passing by the open-top stadium that fortunately caught parts of the rehearsals are now noting that the iconic theme from Square Enix‘s Dragon Quest role-playing video game series. While others claim to hear “Tsubasa wo Kudasai,” originally written in 1970, the track has taken on a new life thanks to its usage in 2009’s Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance feature film.
