The London Philharmonic Orchestra has recorded 17 covers of famous songs from gaming. They're going to release them on November 6th in a compilation called The Greatest Video Game Music 2.
The album features tracks from both old and new games. Chrono Trigger's main theme and "One-Winged Angel" from Final Fantasy 7 are sure to be the biggest crowd-pleasers. However, I'm intrigued by the mention of a "Still Alive" cover.
Here's the full list of songs covered by the orchestra:
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations – Main Theme
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Far Horizons
The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker – Dragon Roost Island
Final Fantasy VII – One-Winged Angel
Mass Effect 3 – A Future for the Krogan/An End Once And For All
Halo – Never Forget/Peril
Sonic the Hedgehog – A Symphonic Suite
Chrono Trigger – Main Theme
Luigi’s Mansion – Main Theme
Kingdom Hearts – Fate of the Unknown
Super Metroid – A Symphonic Poem
Diablo III – Overture
Batman: Arkham City – Main Theme
Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Icarus Main Theme
Fez – Adventure
Portal – Still Alive
Little Big Planet – Orb Of Dreamers (The Cosmic Imagisphere)
The album will be available through iTunes for $7.99. However, you can download "Never Forget/Peril" from Halo for free through the album's website. Furthermore, you can check out three samples from the album below.
