I love Ragnarok Online. While the original PC title will always been one of my favorite games, we’ve checked out the Ragnarok DS spin-off here on OSV, and it looks as though GungHo Online is set on redefining the series with a number of spin-offs that have been slated for iOS (Ragnarok Violet), PSP (Ragnarok: The Imperial Princess of Light and Dark), and the PlayStation Vita (Ragnarok Odyssey). The Imperial Princess of Light and Dark is a strategy title for the PSP that was released in Japan on October 2011, but as of yet has no release planned for North America.
Still, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the score for the game, composed in part by composer Hideki Sakamoto who has impressed us with his work on echochrome and other titles. He’s joined by composer team 12sound to create a blend of orchestral fantasy music that is a lot of fun, even if distinctly different from the music soundTeMP wrote for the original PC game.
I was curious as to how Sakamoto was brought on board for this title and the nature of his contributions, so join us after the jump as we inquire! (more…)
