Box set to compile Kingdom Hearts HD soundtracks
On November 25, Square Enix will the Kingdom Hearts -HD 1.5 & 2.5 Remix- Original Soundtrack Box. The seven disc box set features all the music from the two remastered Kingdom Hearts compilations, most of which has been rearranged and performed by session orchestras.
The soundtrack for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix was principally arranged by Taku Sakakibara (aka TaQ) and performed by his Japanese chamber orchestra gaQdan. As discussed in this interview, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix was principally arranged by Shota Nakama and performed by Boston’s Video Game Orchestra. Yoko Shimomura closely supervised both productions.
As previously announced, both soundtracks will also be release separately, with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix Original Soundtrack spanning three discs and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix Original Soundtrack spanning four discs. The box set is quite pricey, retailing at 7560 JPY (~70 USD), but significantly cheaper than the individual soundtracks together.
