Yasunori Mitsuda set to publish first game soundtrack in five years

On January 19, Yasunori Mitsuda will publish the Valkyria -Azure Revolution- Original Soundtrack. Dedicated to the action RPG Valkyria Revolution, the album is Mitsuda’s first self-published game soundtrack release in five years and his first solo release in closer to a decade.


The track listings reveal that the two-disc soundtrack will feature 39 tracks from the game. The dynamic soundtrack was recorded over a three-day session with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. It also features solo performances from Xenoblade Chronicles‘ Sarah Àlainn.

Look out for a review from our resident Mitsuda expert upon its release this fortnight.

    What about Sacrifice Original Soundtrack, 2013 (http://vgmdb.net/album/36956) where Yasunori Mitsuda composed most of the tracks.

    • Sorry Fel, I probably wasn’t clear enough. I meant self-published in this case. But I guess what’s more remarkable in Valkyria Revolution is his first solo game soundtrack since Inazuma Eleven 2.

  2. I’m glad Mitsuda was finally able to tackle a big composing project like this. He has said in interviews in recent years that he’d like to compose another big RPG game, and finally it happened!
