Like so. Any new info out of this?
Little bits. Nakamura (game director) wanted the music to be more "intense" for this game, so that's what Ohtani has gone for. You can hear it, albeit not very clearly, in the background of the gameplay footage
. Aaron said that he'll see if it's possible to post up a snippet of the music in the coming months as more info about the game is divulged. He specified, of course, that he's not making any promises because these things require approval from the powers that be.
Senoue has contributed to the soundtrack in a small way at least. Ohtani wrote the theme song
and asked Senoue to find a vocalist. Apparently, they did the same for Unleashed, Colours and '06. It's not really clear yet if Senoue is also a contributing artist on the soundtrack otherwise. All we know for sure is that Ohtani is the sound director, and big Sonic games always have a sizeable team of musicians involved to differing degrees. For the record, Ohtani previously directed '06
, Lost World
, and contributed in large to SA2
. The man is certainly talented and very versatile.
I think that's about it for Forces. The two also talked about their favourite compositions for the series (Rooftop Run and Escape from the City amongst them). Interestingly, Senoue said he went through eight different songs before finally creating and deciding upon Open Your Heart as the theme for SA1. Fun bit of trivia that we'll probably never know anything more about.
