“Wandering souls, the time for salvation has come.” the strange man declared to the crowd in the dead of the night. And all who have attended this meeting disappeared.

A mass disappearance of people is prompting action from the death angel academy as the teacher has assigned the task of investigating the case to his students. However, upon investigating the incident, Mako and her friends came upon white, masked creatures and agents who have been gathering souls.

Predators usually devour souls they have gathered, but these agents who called themselves hatchers of the demon's egg are gathering them for unknown purposes. Soon, our beloved cast realized that the scheme behind the agents and the appearance of the white masks are far more dangerous than any other assignments the academy has ever set for them.

After the Battle Theme selection, Sakuraba Motoi, the talented musician who composed tracks for famous RPG titles such as Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile, have decided to bring out a more mellow and classical atmosphere from his Tales of music pieces by rearranging them for piano solo.

The tracks themselves are of course master pieces but the way they have been lined up in the soundtrack is like the telling of a story. It starts off with young heroes setting off on a journey, getting to know their friends and learning through hardship to the climatic point where they have to face off bosses in final battles.

Tales of Series Piano Selection is available for US$ 29.90 only.

For all other soundtracks and music albums related to the Tales of series, please see here



One of the most memorable scenes in the promotional movie of Sigma Harmonics is when Sigma, a “sound master” pounded on the grand piano in a Beethoven-like pose. With a sound master as the protagonist, music is of course a very important element in the game.

This rich collection contains full versions of background tracks used in the game and promotional videos as well as music pieces which have unfortunately never appeared in the actual game.

The dark atmosphere and suspense of the game are brought out by haunting tracks, but the excitement is portrayed by something more techno styled.

The combination of Square Enix's veteran composer Hamauzu Masashi and the rising star in the techno soundtrack world, Suzuki Mitsuhito have produced a chemical reaction with the album that will surely dazzle all of its listeners.

Sigma Harmonics Original Soundtrack is available for US$ 23.90 only.



X Edge, like its name, is a large scale crossover between games of Gust, Capcom, Nippon Software, Bandai Namco Games and Idea Factory.

To combine the charm of all of these RPG series, the soundtrack itself requires a lot of effort. To do justice to the composer's works, therefore, the soundtrack is published on a high quality CD that is a far superior media than normal CDs.

Aside from the background tracks, the theme song Blade of Tears, sung by the singer and song writer Shimotsuki Haruka is a huge attraction.

The singer herself has a pure and adorable voice and the album carries full chorus, 1 chorus and an off vocal version of the theme song.

X Edge the Original Soundtrack, priced at US$ 31.90 is going to prepare you for the release of the actual game in the next few days.



The horror carries on with the second Siren Original Soundtrack. The voluminous collection contains two CDs. If the affects of the first soundtrack is starting to wear off since you have been listening to it repeatedly and is now suffering from peaceful sleep again, here is your remedy.

Although New Translation is rumored to be the most horrifying game in history, we must never underestimate the eeriness of the original game for it sets its base for this current installment and touches the roots of our senses of terror.

Let your nightmares continue with Siren 2 Original Soundtrack, sold for US$ 31.90 only.
