SAN DIEGO – April 7, 2020 – Scarlet Moon Records is pleased to announce pre-orders for the Indivisible Original Game Soundtrack PLUS. The album features nearly two hours of demo, unused, alternate, and “inspired by” tracks from 505 Games and Lab Zero Games’ beautiful RPG, Indivisible, and includes a lengthy digital booklet with track-by-track commentary to give fans insight into Kikuta’s creative process.
The Indivisible Original Game Soundtrack PLUS comes just in time for Lab Zero’s free “New Game+” and couch co-op DLC which is out this week. While diving into New Game+, listen for Kikuta’s new credits theme, “Euphrosyna,” which is included on the album. Indivisible Original Game Soundtrack PLUS is now available for pre-order and will release on April 21, 2020:
“Given the size of Indivisible’s score, I knew pretty early on that we’d have a lot of unused and in-progress material by the end of it,” notes Scarlet Moon’s Jayson Napolitano,
“Little did we know just how much of it there would be! As a huge fan of Square Enix Music’s varied releases, I thought it would be fun to do a riff on their PLUS soundtrack series by including this material alongside Kikuta-san’s commentary. We also thought including the original filenames would be a nice touch. We hope fans of Indivisible and of Kikuta-san’s work in general appreciate this additional two-plus hours of music.”
The original Indivisible game soundtrack is also available for purchase, featuring two hours of Southeast Asian-inspired music that fans of Kikuta’s Secret of Mana soundtrack will feel right at home with.
Indivisible is available on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
