Shadow Of The Colossus iam8bit 2‑LP Vinyl Revealed

Part of what makes great games great is the music. With Shad­ow of the Colos­sus Sony’s Japan Stu­dio took extra care of the music play­ers will be hearing.

When it came time to update the music, while we were unable to redo every track, we want­ed to add more depth to the open­ing and end­ing, so we increased the num­ber of musi­cians and added more string instru­ments to the orig­i­nal record­ings. The goal of this record­ing was less to change the track them­selves and more to make the sense of scale even bigger.”

The Playsta­tion Blog sat down with Shad­ow of the Colos­sus’s music com­pos­er Kow Otani. He talks about the inspi­ra­tion behind the music.

 “The music feels like you might have saved some­one you love, but you couldn’t save every­one you loved. For exam­ple, in the track “End of the Bat­tle,” you would think the music would be tri­umphant after win­ning. But as a whole, this sound­track has more in com­mon with a prayer or a requiem.”
