Play for Japan, which has showcased a number of charitable efforts of individuals and companies in video games, has already raised over $122,727 for Japanese tsunami relief efforts. Now the organization is prepping the release of Play for Japan: The Album, a benefit album that brings together many of the industry's most prestigious composers.

Organized by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series, Shadows of the Damned), the album is set to release in early June on the iTunes store.
