Be it hedgehogs, firefighters or dancing penguins, Yuji Naka’s games frequently feature soundtracks just as memorable as the games themselves. The same holds true for his Prope studio’s latest release, Rodea The Sky Soldier. Released on November 10th for Wii U and 3DS, Rodea features a soundtrack from Takayuki Nakamura and his Brainstorm sound studio.

Nakamura has previously contributed music to an eclectic array of games including the Virtua Fighter series, Tobal 2, Ehrgeiz and, more recently, Ninety-Nine Nights, Imported and the Lumines series. You can hear a little bit of all those styles in Rodea’s soundtrack which accents the game’s free-flying aerial action with both orchestral and electronic elements.

“Working on Rodea the Sky Soldier has been one of the highlights of my career,” reflects Nakamura. “Mr. Yuji Naka had a very distinct vision for this game from the outset, and upon seeing the first prototype with Rodea flying through the clear blue sky, I was immediately struck with inspiration for the game’s title theme. While the scope and platform changed over the course of the years, I’m still pleased with the outcome. I hope you enjoy the game and its soundtrack!”

Released alongside the game, the soundtrack is available now on iTunes and Amazon and contains 23 tracks. You can check out the 4-track sample embedded above, grab the vocal theme song featuring artist Dino for free, or find out even more about the soundtrack at the Japanese website.
