Developer n-Space and producer Square Enix have elected to drop an audio track which gives us “a glimpse of things to come” in their 3DS title, Heroes of Ruin. The soundtrack’s composer Sacha Puttnam has an extensive, though eclectic, musical background, having performed with Moby, played keyboard for Beck, and won awards for his musical work on various BBC productions.
The Heroes of Ruin track in particular sets an appropriately epic mood for the fantasy title, opening with hushed strings and subdued brass to gently guide listeners to the lush, mysterious world of the game before the drums begin pounding, heralding battle. Check after the break for a link to the track.
The song moves through various moods seamlessly, and if other aesthetics of the game match Puttnam’s auditory flourish, we could have a truly immersive 3DS experience on our hands when Heroes of Ruin drops this April.
Listen to the track for yourself on the game’s website.
