Enjoy The Last Guardian’s music via exclusive app and special vinyl releases

Multiple choices for those eager to absorb the soundscape of PS4 adventure

As ardent fans of Fumito Ueda’s past games can attest, the audio element of his projects – both sound and music – play a vital role in immersing the player in a rich fantasy world. Many gamers who hear the theme from the 13th boss in Shadow of the Colossus, for example, will immediately recall standing atop a sprinting Agro in pursuit of a gigantic snake-like creature soaring over a barren desert.

The aural presentation in The Last Guardian is no less crucial for achieving the full experience of exploring this new world with Trico.

Determinedly composed, orchestrated, and conducted by Takeshi Furukawa and gracefully orchestrated by the London Symphony Orchestra, Trinity Boys Choir, and London Voices at Air Studios, the music of The Last Guardian is laden with emotion and oft-times haunting. It powerfully complements the story of this boy and creature, alone amidst ancient ruins, discovering each other as they seek a path to freedom.

We’re happy to announce that a The Last Guardian Composer’s Choice PS4 Music App, featuring 19 tracks from the game, will be available separately at launch via the PlayStation Store. The soundtrack app supports both stereo and surround playback, and also allows users to export all the tracks as stereo MP3 files via a compatible USB drive.

TITLE

For audiophiles and collectors, a Vinyl release of the OST will be available in December. We’ll have an update on exact release timing and pricing at a later date.

TITLE

Lastly, for owners of PlayStation headsets, an exclusive mode for The Last Guardian will deliver a fine-tuned audio experience engineered for maximum immersion. If you own a PlayStation headset compatible with the Headset Companion App, be sure to download and activate this special mode when you play!

Did you enjoy this?

the hype = to long
lost al intrest in the game

 

hmm, can we export it in lossless quality? The MDRs I recently acquired can actually take advantage of that….please not only MP3s

 

Very excited for the game. Can’t wait to hear the score while playing it.

 

Already love what little we have heard of the soundtrack so far – I keep replaying the E3 trailer just to listen to that emotionally powerful, haunting choral music.

Will be getting the digital soundtrack that’s included with the Collector’s Edition. But maybe someone will get me this double LP for Christmas.

Looking forward to experiencing Ueda’s and Furukawa-san and team’s work come December!

That is an amazing looking vinyl – can’t resist getting it to go along with the Collector’s Edition.

Although, why does the CE only comes with 10 digital tracks when there are 19 in total? http://cdn4.dualshockers.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/TLG_CE.jpg

So we’re going to have to buy the OST again, just to get the 9 extra tracks? ????

    I was suspecting that the 10-track digital version might not be the full soundtrack… But yes, it’s quite disappointing that it is the case. It’s one of the things that made me particularly want the collector’s edition, but the fact that I’ll have to buy the ‘proper’ soundtrack separately makes the CE less value for money.

 

I couldn’t resist, I’ve pre-ordered the vinyl.

looks good

Will there be a CD release?

(I have the Japanese-release ICO and SotC soundtrack CDs, so I’d love to have the complete set.)
