The sound in Fumito Ueda’s games (Ico and Shadow of the Colossus) is stunning, there’s no two ways about it. Unsurprisingly, The Last Guardian is heading down the same path, and we’ve got a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating aural bliss.
Composed and conducted by Takeshi Furukawa and orchestrated by the London Symphony Orchestra, Trinity Boys Choir, and London Voices at Air Studios, the music of The Last Guardian promises to be an emotional rollercoaster, allowing full immersion into the world of the game. Check out the “making of” video here:
It’s so much of a focus that there will even be an app — The Last Guardian Composer’s Choice PS4 Music App — available on the PlayStation Store at the same time the game launches, featuring 19 tracks from the game. The soundtrack app supports both stereo and surround playback, and you’ll be able to export all the tracks as stereo MP3 files via a compatible USB drive.
If you have a PlayStation headset there’s an exclusive Headset Companion App to enhance the audio, and for vinyl lovers, there’s a a special LP release available in December.
It’s so pretty.
