The Life Style Cry music compilation by Square Enix dates back to the 2016 Tokyo Game Show, held at the Makuhari Messe convention center. The 13-track compilation, shipping from the online store for North America and Europe during TGS 2021 Online, pairs assorted, melancholic role-playing game themes.

The album's selected tracks include Kenji Ito's "Drowning in Despair" from Final Fantasy Adventure for Game Boy, Noriko Matsueda's "Lament" from Bahamut Lagoon for Super Famicom, Yasunori Mitsuda's "The Girl Who Stole the Stars" from Chrono Cross for Sony PlayStation, and Hidenori Iwasaki's "Casualties of War" from Front Mission 5: Scars of the War for PlayStation 2.

Takeharu Ishimoto's "A Flower Blooming in the Slums" arranges Nobuo Uematsu's "Aerith's Theme" for the prequel Crisis Core for PlayStation Portable. Tsuyoshi Sekito's "I hear a voice calling me to awaken" appears in The Last Remnant, while Masashi Hamauzu's "Eternal Sorrow" was composed for Musashi Samurai Legend.

Assorted sad music themes can be streamed on the Spotify playlist "Final Fantasy Cry." Excerpts from the compilation can be previewed on YouTube, courtesy of Square Enix.
