The lights are on
In addition to providing a look at the creation of Rain's
musical score, Sony has announced the release date and price for Japan Studio's
artistic adventure game.
In the video, Rain composer Yugo Kanno discusses his approach
and goals for the game's soundtrack, which led him to collaborating with bandoneon
player Hirofumi Mizuno. If you don't know what a bandoneon is, you should
really watch the video. You'll also hear from pint-sized British vocalist
Connie Talbot, who describes what it was like singing the main theme.
Sony also announced the release date and price for Rain.
Players can buy the downloadable game from the PlayStation Store for $14.99 on
October 1. If you preorder before September 30, you'll receive an XMB theme,
five hand-drawn avatars, and a music montage made from in-game songs. For more
on the game, check out the first
developer diary, discussing Rain's somber environments.

music really can make the experience. I mean just look at Journey. This is gonna be a good one.
I wonder how long this game will be. Even if it's short, it looks to be worth a $15 entrance fee.
I really enjoyed the music they provided for that video. Thanks for posting it, GI.
