The lead composer of the title, Hiroki Morishita, composed the music for Fire Emblem: Awakening alongside fellow returnee Rei Kondoh of T’s Music. They are joined this time round by two Intelligent Systems’ employees known for their work on WarioWare, Takeru Kanazaki and Yasuhisa Baba, and surprisingly DesignWave’s Masato Kouda of Monster Hunter fame. It appears that Yuka Tsujiyoko, the composer of the classic titles in the series, was involved in a supervisory role this time round.

The soundtrack features an orchestrated theme song, “if ~Hitori Omou~, written by Morishita and sung by Renka. The soundtrack also features performances from traditional Japanese instrumentalists. Currently, no details have been released about a soundtrack album for the title.
