The Sounds and Music of The Last Guardian

The Sounds and Music of The Last Guardian

As ardent fans of Fumito Ueda’s past games can attest, the audio component of his projects – both sound and music – play a vital role in immersing the player in a rich fantasy world. Many gamers who hear the theme from the 13th boss in Shadow of the Colossus, for example, will immediately recall standing atop a sprinting Agro in pursuit of a gigantic snake like creature soaring over a barren desert.

The aural presentation in The Last Guardian is no less crucial for achieving the full experience of exploring this new world with Trico. Determinedly composed, orchestrated, and conducted by Takeshi Furukawa and gracefully performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, Trinity Boys Choir, and London Voices at Air Studios, the music of The Last Guardian is laden with emotion — and often haunting. It powerfully complements the story of this boy and creature, alone amidst ancient ruins, working together as they seek a path to freedom.

We’re happy to announce that a The Last Guardian Composer’s Choice PS4 Music App of the score featuring 19 tracks will be available separately at launch via the PlayStation Store. The soundtrack app supports both stereo and surround playback, and also allows users to export all the tracks as stereo MP3 files via a compatible USB drive. The soundtrack will also be available via iTunes at a later date.

For audiophiles and collectors, a Vinyl release of the OST will be available in December. We’ll have an update on exact release timing and pricing for that version at a later date.

Lastly, for owners of PlayStation headsets, a custom audio mode for The Last Guardian will deliver a fine-tuned audio experience engineered for maximum immersion. If you own a PlayStation headset compatible with the Headset Companion App, be sure to download and activate this special mode when you play!

    Dear Sony what do you going to do for us Ps Vita Owners, those 13 millions of people Who give it to you their support AND YOU NEVER DO NOTHING FOR US..

    Just 3 months and the Nintendo Switch is out…

    I mean “Home Console quality games on the go” thanks to Nintendo Switch !!!

    • God, move on. The system is nearly five years old and you “supportive” Vita owners didn’t support it during its heyday. Games tank on there, so companies stopped making them. That’s not hard to understand, is it?

    • pablikenemy79

      What sony do for us !? first 6 months of support then Sony just forgive about us.,. How many First person shooter is on it !? 3, i mean in 4 years just 3 Fps ……..
      They made a partnership with Rockstar about RDR2 why not for bring some gta. Games to Vita!? I mean we buy this console with the “promise” of “Console quality game on the Go”

      If the device is dead WHY SONY DONT SAY NOTHING ABOUT IT !? At least we deserve a litle respect. .

      Anyway the Nintendo Switch is on the way with the SUPPORT OF NINTENDO AND THIRD PARTY CO. I aint see the moment i can play Metroid Trilogy on the Go, is a dream comes true, thanks to Nintendo Switch..

    • I’m sure Wii U owners who go through insane droughts would like a word with you

    • dkarlowicz10

      I think the answer should be PS4 Go, a portable PS4 that plays digital games only. Come on Sony, make it happen.

    • Maybe they will release PS Now on Switch, as a service.

      I don’t trust whiners without PS+.

      Yes, there certainly were console quality games on the go.
      Uncharted Golden Abyss
      Killzone Mercenary
      Soul Sacrifice Delta
      Toukidan Kiwami
      Injustice
      MK
      MLB The Show
      Borderlands 2
      NFS
      AC Liberation
      World of FF
      Freedom Wars
      SLy Thieves in Time
      LBP Vita
      Virtua Tennis 4
      PS All-Stars

      Sony supported the device far longer than 6 months. Sony exclusives that all came out way after 6 months.
      Tearaway
      Killzone Mercenary
      Freedom Wars
      Oreshika
      MLB The Show
      Soul Sac Delta

      Good luck with all that 3rd party support with Nintendo…Oh, and it’s at about 15 million Vita owners now. Funny how the Vita “gets no 3rd party support” yet World of Final Fantasy and Spider Rite of the Shrouded Moon launched on Vita on the same day.

      The Vita is not supported anymore. Move on.

    • I’ve picked up 6 NEW release titles for my PS Vita in the last month. Maybe look at the release catalog and realize that there are, indeed, new games out there? Perhaps they’re not in your wheelhouse of preferred genres, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for me.

  • Please release the soundtrack on Google Play and Amazon as well. I don’t use iTunes.

  • LeandroDiFini

    Looks good! Still excited for this one!

  • OnionKnight11

    Will there ba a physical CD version of the soundtrack?

  • TomatoDragon

    This soundtrack will never leave my player.

  • Destinys_Memory

    Day one. Just like the game.

  • The OST is magnificent, counting the days till the game’s release!

  • lisatsunami

    Watched the video. The composer looked like some kid in front of that mostly-grizzled guy orchestra. I generally don’t care about game soundtracks, but there are some exceptions. Like Journey. I’ll buy this on iTunes when available.

    So, this means TLG is really happening? It really has gone gold? My 7 1/2 year wait is almost over?

    Can’t wait for Last Guardian. Now that it is here, how about Shadow of the Colossus and Ico International Edition on PS4?
