Highly-anticipated dungeon crawler hits Steam and Nintendo Switch with funky electronic/orchestral hybrid soundtrack by Dale North.
SAN DIEGO – May 16, 2018 – Scarlet Moon Records is pleased to present the WIZARD OF LEGEND Original Soundtrack composed by Dale North. This fast-paced dungeon crawler was released on Steam and Nintendo Switch yesterday, putting a powerful and flashy arsenal of magical spells into the hands of young wizards everywhere as they attempt to overcome the Chaos Trials. North’s funky electronic/orchestral hybrid soundtrack accentuates the action in style, from the epic title track to the signature elemental themes. WIZARD OF LEGEND Original Soundtrack is available now wherever digital music is sold:
“Wizard of Legend’s fast play style and design calls back to my favorite era of gaming, which was during the Sega Saturn’s heyday,” explains composer Dale North. “I channeled my love of the sound of those games by building a soundscape based around my collection of synthesizers from the 1990s and recording them the old way: manually analog, and layer by layer. And then in line with Wizard of Legend’s dazzling spells and chain attacks, I wrote high-tempo, soaring orchestral backings to support the synthesizers, aiming for a blend that would be both exciting and memorable.”
“It’s been a pleasure working with Dale and Scarlet Moon,” comment Contingent99 developers Dahoon Lee and Bundy Kim. “The entire project has been an awesome collaborative process and we feel that the final soundtrack is the culmination of all the hard work the team put in to bringing Wizard of Legend to life. We can’t thank Dale enough for helping us throughout this journey and we hope that everyone enjoys the Wizard of Legend Original Soundtrack as much as we do!”
Wizard of Legend is a fast-paced dungeon crawler with an emphasis on dynamic magical combat. Quick movement and even quicker use of spells will allows players to chain spells together to unleash devastating combinations against their enemies. Unlock and master over a hundred elemental spells to overcome the Chaos Trials!
