I suppose I should be more dismayed that it isn’t an everyday occurrence but I’m always happy to see someone release a game soundtrack through the PlayStation Store. The latest one is a combo pack of Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2 (Dark Chronicle in Japan) soundtracks which was released on January 10th. That’s about a year after the venerable PlayStation 2 action/RPGs made the jump to PlayStation 4. Maybe there was some licensing in the way but it would’ve made for some nice synergy if the games and the music hit in the same week.
Nevertheless, the music is here now for $14.99 in North America and £7.99 in Europe. The soundtracks are only available together in this combo release and share 123 tracks for over 3 hours of music from Tomohito Nishiura. The listing doesn’t give a detailed breakdown but the official Dark Cloud OSTs add up to the same number of tracks and length. Fifteen dollars is a fair bit cheaper than you’re likely to find the CDs online these days, if you spot them at all.
Lastly, as with previous soundtrack releases on the PlayStation Store, the Dark Cloud Series Soundtrack can be exported in MP3 format. If it holds true to The Last Guardian soundtrack app it will all pop out onto your USB drive in 320kbps format, around 850mb in size.
Are you going to pick up this soundtrack compilation? What other PS2-on-PS4 releases would you like to see an accompanying soundtrack for? Let us know in the comments.
