Spotted by Twitter User @Stealth40k, it seems that iconic composer Yasunori Mitsuda has recorded with the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra yesterday! The official Bratislava Symphony Orchestra posted on Facebook yesterday at 2:37AM this post:
The post reads: “Today choir onlyrecording for Japan, music for a video game.” Normally, this would not mean much, and would not get any attention at all considering this orchestra records quite often. However, this all changes when you look into the comment section of the post, and see a reply from the legendary composer himself, Yasunori Mitsuda. Mitsuda is known for his works such as Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Xenogears, Xenosaga Episode I, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and Final Fantasy XV: Episode IGNIS. He replied “It was a great recording session. Thank you very much.”, also making a post about the recording as well, which you can see below.
Mitsuda previously teased that a “large-scale recording” would begin recording in April on his personal blog, and this very well could be said a part of the recordings mentioned. With his most recent work on MonolithSoft’s Xenoblade Chronicles 2, there is much speculation that he is currently recording for the next MonolithSoft game, whether that be a brand new Xenoblade game, or a new IP. Whatever the case may be, hopefully we find out what Mitsuda has been working on soon!
