If you're anything like some of us at Massively, the music in your games really adds something to the experience. While Ys Online
may not snag the headlines here very much, it's an MMO based off of a series of Japanese RPGs
that reaches back into the 1980s. The Ys IP has also been spun off into two anime series
produced in the late 80's and early 90s. Ys Online
is still in open beta in Europe
, but they're already making the game's soundtrack available for free download. You can preview the tracks on the Ys Online
Europe site and download each track individually, or just grab the whole soundtrack as a zip file.
The Ys Online
soundtrack is composed by the same people behind the score
of the various Ys titles in the past -- Yuzo Koshiro
; Mieko Ishikawa
and Hideya Nagata.
