Going to be in Sydney in September? If so, A Night in Fantasia 2009 is the place to be. Eminence just put out a press release about the concert, which is set to take place on September 26, 2009, at the Sydney Entertainment Centre in Australia. It looks like it’s going to be an amazing night of games and anime not to be forgotten.

Getting to the stuff you really want to know: what are they playing? There’s a lot of new material here, with AFRIKA, Darksiders: Wrath of War, Dragon Age: Origins, Prince of Persia, and the amazing Shadow of the Colossus along with some anime pieces from Astro Boy, Studio Ghibli, and Deathnote to name a few. A pretty wide range of material, and I’m curious to hear the music of Darksiders: Wrath of War and Dragon Age: Origins in particular, as they haven’t struck me as big music titles.

Would you be interested in hearing any of these games at a concert near you? Read Eminence’s official press release after the jump.
