Hitoshi Sakimoto/Awesome Music
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Sakimoto has been coming up with many militaristic themes epic in its own right since Final Fantasy Tactics.
- With an epic plot, epic characters, Nintendo Hard gameplay, it must be said that the entire music of Vagrant Story is equally epic. Again, Hitoshi Sakimoto at the helm. For battle themes, try "Ifrit", or better yet that battle theme against wyverns!. For dungeon themes, try listening to "Catacombs", or "Undercity". On a rainy night. Alone.
- Electric Power Building from Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter has Sakimoto create a really unique soundscape.
- Alchemist from the Atlus RPG Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity would qualify.
- Valkyria Chronicles entire soundtrack, especially the Main Theme.
- Don't forget Radiant Silvergun; it had some pretty awesome music too, like Return, Penta, and The Stone-Like.
- Gauntlet (1985 video game) 4: Sortie
- Verytex: The Void of Space
- Devilish (a.k.a. Bad Omen): Introduction
- Gradius V: Aircraft Carrier (Big Core Mk. I) and, closer to his typical Epic Orchestrated style: Elephant Gear
- That Which Stands in the Way
- Odin Sphere: World Map
- Final Fantasy Tactics: Team Making
- Tactics Ogre: Catastrophe
- Even for the most obscure Japan-only games of the 90's, Hitoshi Sakimoto did his best: Intro to Hourai Gakuen no Bouken
- Master Of Monsters: Introduction - he never let silly things like chipset limitations or hardware quality get in the way of making epic music
- A more 'indie' song Dungeon from The Adventure of Hourai High School
- Lord Of Vermilion II: Collaboration with an electric guitarist for great effect, to say the least.
- Soukyugurentai: Descent Into The Sea Of Clouds and Arctic Oil Field Base. It's quite interesting to note that this game is also on the same arcade board alongside Radiant Silvergun, which leads to some more comparisons (other than the music, of course.)
- Bubble Ghost Theme, one of his first video game soundtracks.
