Basiscape Records Has announced that the two-disc original soundtrack for Valkyria Chronicles is now available on iTunes and is fully remastered. Besides gameplay and its beautifully rendered, artistic canvas style in the graphical department, the musical score was nothing to sneeze about. Hitoshi Sakimoto’s composition perfectly matched the tone of a war-torn setting and down-to-earth anime style.
“When we first started out, the development team for Valkyria Chronicles was quite small, but full of hot-blooded members with a keen fighting spirit,” reflects Sakimoto. “We really wanted to show what Japanese game developers could accomplish. While the team of course expanded over the course of development, I believe we were able to retain that love and passion until the very end. Welkin and Alicia really embody this spirit of determination. Wouldn’t we all like to love and live as strongly as they do? I see this soundtrack as a page from my youth, and I hope it resonates with fans of the game.”
Listeners will relive their favorite moments from this gorgeous and captivating masterpiece with decisive military marches, tender ballads, and the stunning Japanese vocal ballad, “Succeeded Wish” performed by vocalist and voice actress Megumi Toyoguchi. A piano solo version of “Succeeded Wish” is also included as a bonus.
Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is now available for the PlayStation 4 for all regions.
