Default Rakugaki Kingdom

I remember hearing about this reboot of the series and being really excited about it because of the list of composers on board. I wonder if they will be releasing a soundtrack? Has anyone heard any news regarding that? With a lineup like that, I'd be surprised if they didn't eventually.

To remind/inform everyone, the main music composer is Yu Shimoda (ZUNTATA), with the following guest composers: Kenji Ito, Noriyuki Iwadare, Hideaki Kuroda, Yuzo Koshiro, Motoi Sakuraba, Yoko Shimomura, Yukio Nakajima, Michiko Naruke, and Yasunori Nishiki. The main theme is sung by Haruka Shimotsuki.

You can hear several examples of the music during this on-stage interview at TGS2019.

According to this Tweet, they are going to create a page where you can sample the music starting next month:

There's a soundtrack shown in this tweet: https://twitter.com/rakukin_pr/statu...49136774336512

Seems to be a reward for their gold level supporters. I don't think they've shipped it to anyone yet.

I just read through the terms and how you accumulate points. 2,000 points for the soundtrack will require way too much work. You'll basically have to share new information about the game to Twitter, Instagram (5 points per share) or YouTube, Pixiv (10 points per share) until you finally get to 2,000 points. They're basically asking you to turn your social media into an advertising campaign for their game for the next however long it would take for you to accumulate the points you need for the item you want.

I guess I'll be looking on Yahoo Auctions and Mercari for a copy of the soundtrack once they actually do ship them out. Hopefully someone will sell a copy for a decent price.

Otherwise, I hope they actually do end up releasing a retail version. With a lineup of composers like that, it would be a real shame is that didn't happen.

This CD was available from a similar social media points campaign. A couple years later, I was able to pick up a signed copy off Mercari for only 1000 yen.

It's just a waiting game. Once the players move on to a new game, they'll start dumping their prizes on market sites.
