I'm freaking out. Obviously it'll have that opera track from the Versus XIII trailer (which I assume is called "drammatica").
Isn't it Somnus Nemoris? Anecdotally, Mitsuyoshi says he realized where and with whom she had recorded it at the mere sight of this pic.
This release makes me reassured that Hamauzu album being the first volume of Square Enix composers’ best series rather than an isolated project was true, after all (though I still wonder why it was revealed by a few online stores), and really curious about what will come next.
Mitsuda is seemingly most unlikely, given he will ever stick with his label not Square Enix’s, and, preferably, would be focusing on CCAA which should have priority. Though recently he frequently mentions sheet music in his diary and [ur=http://blog77.fc2.com/k/kirite/file/orchestra_score.jpg]prepares for recording with an orchestra[/url](so I suspect something more than SOMA BRINGER soundtrack having one sheer music copy as preorder bonus goes on) I still don’t think his is a likely choice. Uematsu, on the other hand, so likely that I wonder why his wasn’t the first to begin with (maybe too busy with other projects including presumably his canceled very earlier works collection). Also, as opposed to Mitsuda, he still seems to have some sort of official relationship with Square Enix, despite his recently launched label. Aside of the two, Kenji Ito immediately comes to my head as, based on his big popularity and current state, he is a good subject if we look back on a VGM composer’s prime, although I know how bullied he’s been in English forums.
Aside of the three, most composers lack some requisites (e.g. Sugiyama or Sakuraba, neither of them have been the composers Square Enix covers, Nakano, Ishimoto, Mizuta or Tanioka, most of them need a bit more popular careers, despite their talents. And of course there leaves the one who I personally wouldn’t like to mention here since there are people who bash him or troll fans at almost every opportunity).
