Regardless of the path chosen, Fire Emblem Fates provides a fantastic journey across the realm of the peace-loving kingdom of Hoshido and the glory-seeking kingdom of Nohr, and such an epic experience demands appropriately epic music from start to finish in order to truly deliver. Thankfully, the combined efforts of Awakening veterans Hiroki Morishita, Rei Kondoh, and Yasuhisa Baba, alongside newcomers Takeru Kanazaki and Masato Kouda, did wonders for the game, and fans of the soundtrack in Japan might have further reason to be excited about it in the near future.
On April 27th, the
Fire Emblem If Original Soundtrack — “If” being the Japanese name for Fates — will be available for purchase in the region, with a whopping 134 total songs from the game compiled into the seven-disc set.
The soundtrack release, with the cover illustrated by Yusuke Kozaki, also comes with a few extra goodies, like a 24-page colored booklet and a special DVD. This DVD includes all of the CGI cutscenes from the three different versions of the game, as well as additional music from My Castle, Dragon’s Gate DLC, the
Fire Emblem Amiibo stages, and vocal tracks and their instrumental versions. First print editions also come with a pair of pin badges.
Fire Emblem If Original Soundtrack is priced at 6800 Yen, or $60 USD at the time of writing. Eager importers will want to keep an eye out for this item once it comes out next month!
