Take A Peek At A Soul Sacrifice Recording Session
One of the coolest things about modern developers is their willingness to share behind-the-scenes looks at the creation of their games. With Soul Sacrifice set to hit U.S. PlayStation Vitas this April, the folks responsible for the game's soundtrack have decided to pull back the curtain on a recent recording session at Skywalker Sound.
The score for Soul Sacrifice is the work of composers Yasunori Mitsuda and Wataru Hokoyama. Mistuda is something of a legend in the industry, responsible for the moving musical pieces filling up the background in games like Chrono Trigger, Xenogears and, more recently, Xenoblade. Hokoyama, on the other hand, is best known for his work on various films, radio programs and television shows.
The duo got together at Skywalker Sound to record the soundtrack for Soul Sacrifice and, following, you'll get to sit in on a recording of “Melody of the Souls,” the game's main theme. Stay tuned after the music for a special message from Mitsuda himself, thanking fans for their patience and encouraging them to check out the game when it finally launches in a couple of months.
Over on the PlayStation Blog, Mitsuda shares a few more comments with the folks eagerly anticipating this upcoming co-op action RPG. Melody of the Souls was apparently his first ever battle music, and I'd say he pretty much nailed it.
“Within those battles, you will face all sorts of situations where you can have the upper hand, or be at disadvantage,” Mitsuda said. “So, in order to match these dramatic sequences, I concentrated on adding many different elements to each piece in order to create an exciting musical composition.”
Look for Soul Sacrifice to arrive in the U.S. sometime in April.
