VIDEO: "Soul Sacrifice" Offers a Sample of Its Orchestrated Music

Keiji Inafune's Vita game hits North America on April 30

Keiji Inafune's Soul Sacrifice is making its way to PS Vita in North America on April 30, but you don't have to wait until then to sample some of its tunes. Chrono Trigger's Yasunori Mitsuda and Resident Evil 5's Wataru Hokoyama teamed up on the soundtrack, and the latter shared some of his work with the PlayStation blog. 

 

 

Here's what Hokoyama had to say about the score:

 

“An unbelievably gigantic enemy appears before you. For this piece, I focused on bringing out the full potential of a full scale orchestra by using bold orchestration to depict the immeasurable sense of scale of the enemy’s size and power. I hope the score will make the players feel like, “there is no way I can beat an enemy with this kind of scale.”

 

Pretty impressive. Check out the rest of the PS Blog entry for more on the mechanics that make Soul Sacrifice special.
