The Japanese film based on the series of novels, by Baku Yumemakura, Onmyoji 2 took over many hearts but not mainly because of the film itself, but rather its heartbreakingly awesome soundtrack. For the fans of the composer, Shigeru Umebayashi, this might be a reason for excitement since it seems to be that, he is also composing for the well-anticipated Sony’s game Ghost Of Tsushima.
A Redditor who goes by the name, “Khannibal-Lecter” seems to be the fan of the work of Shigeru Umebayashi, so he reached out and posted the original soundtrack of the film in an attempt to give the fans an idea of how his work might seem like.
To be honest, after seeing the E3 2018 gameplay trailer of Ghost Of Tsushima and then putting the audio composition in context, it seems like there could not have been a better person to compose for this game.
For those who are not familiar with Shigeru Umebayashi or his work, they would be fascinated to know that Umebayashi is a well acclaimed Japanese composer. He was once a member of a new wave rock band in Japan. Following the break up with the band, he began composing soundtracks for various films and video games.
Now having the amazing Shigeru Umebayashi working on the audio side of this amazing game, it certainly can not get any better.
That said, Ghost Of Tsushima is at the moment one of the best games in terms of visuals to happen on PS4. As you may have seen in the trailer, the amazing lightning, its fine-textured quality, as well as the captivating art style needs a pitch-perfect audio to enhance the gaming experience. Hopefully, Shigeru Umebayashi will justify his work through this game.
