Soundtracks: Eternal Sonata, Phoenix Wright
10.17.07 - 8:02 PM

The most recent RPG to come from Japan to the US for Microsoft' Xbox 360 is tri-Crescendo's Trusty Bell ~Chopin's Dream~. The US version, named Eternal Sonata by Namco Bandai, was recently reviewed by our editor Damian Thomas. Now another editor, Dennis Rubinshteyn, tells us about the four-disc soundtrack by Motoi Sakuraba (including compositions from Chopin, of course).

But that's not all! Now it's time to take the stand!

Reader "Helmholz" is our star witness, testifying to the nature of the soundtrack for Gyakuten Saiban 4. That's right: Helmholz is one step ahead of the market, as Gyakuten Saiban 3 (Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations) is just coming to the US next week. The fourth game in the lawyer-sim series, tentatively titled Apollo Justice for English-speaking audiences, continues Capcom's tradition of putting a new composer at the helm for each game in the series. Check out what Helmholz has to say about it.

Finally, editor Patrick Gann (that's me) also takes the stand to talk about the other arranged album in the series. After the orchestra album, Noriyuki Iwadare arranged another album, the "Gyakuten Saiban Jazz Album." It's a good one.

Next update, we'll be hearing from an old, faithful voice about a new US-produced fan project, along with a few obscure albums to decorate. Be ready!
