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.
