Sonic Runners soundtrack receiving physical release

SEGA announced at the Tokyo Joypolis festival that a physical soundtrack release for the smartphone endless runner title Sonic Runners. Priced at 1500 JPY, the Sonic Runners Complete Soundtrack will be released by Wavemaster Entertainment on September 14. Composed by veteran Sonic sound director Tomoya Ohtani, the music exhibits an upbeat pop flavour. In our recent interview with him, he stated that:


Sonic Runners is a game app for smartphones, but all the songs that are used in it were made in the same way I’ve ever made music for the normal Sonic series. The main instruments I used for the music in Sonic Runners are the drums, bass, guitar, and piano. I made these songs by focusing on creating a catchy band sound. Given the band sound I used here goes back to my roots, it was very fun to make the music for it.”

Last year, SEGA released the music for Sonic Runners in two digital volumes. It remains to be announced if the complete soundtrack will feature exclusive tracks.
