“Play for Japan: The Album” Tracklist Released!

May 24, 2011 at 12:14 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments

Silent Hill composer, Akira Yamaoka has brought together video game composers from around the world to create a video game music charity album to help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The album will be released on iTunes in June (I’ll make sure to tell you the exact date as soon as I know^^), and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the relief efforts in Japan. In total, there are 18 game composers on this album (including Nobuo Uemastu, Yasunori Mitsuda, Koji Kondo, and many others) who have contributed their original music. I’ve put the full tracklist underneath the videos so you can check it out!
