Grasshopper Manufacture is currently at work on the PS4 exclusive hack and slash game Let It Die, and the game music legend Akira Yamaoka is working on it as sound director.
Not much is known about the game yet, but during an interview conducted at Grasshopper’s offices in Tokyo, Yamaoka-san offered us more insight on what we can expect from the soundtrack.
The question I always have in my mind when working on music for any game, whether it’s Silent Hill or Shadow of the Damned, I always think about what I can do for this art form and for the video game as a whole.
For Let It Die it’s the same way. I’m not only acting as an artist, but thinking what I can do for the game as a whole.
In that sense, right now, it’s not about what kind of genre you’ll be listening in this game, but I’m trying to come up with a system where I can have many artists in Japan to create music for this game, and then deliver that to the world.
Yamaoka-san is a true legend in the field of video game music, having worked on countless titles since Silent Hill. It’ll be very interesting to hear what he’ll concoct for Let It Die, but in the meanwhile, you can check back soon on DualShockers for the full interview.
