Konami has always produced games worthy of separate soundtracks. You will find some of the best video game music in long-running franchises like Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania .
However, these separate soundtracks don't always find their way to North American stores, which is why you may have to import the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker soundtrack , which is scheduled to launch alongside the highly anticipated PSP game in Japan. Well, actually, you can get it one day early – March 17 – at the Japanese Konami Style store, for the somewhat steep cost of 2,940 yen, or about $30. If you're a true die-hard MGS fan, though, you'll want to buy the better version for 4,515 yen (nearly $50), which gives you the "Heaven's Divide" single on a separate disc. Now, this song is actually on the regular soundtrack disc but this special bonus also features "Koi no Yokushiryoku," which is Paz Ortega Andrade's theme. Personally, I'm not entirely sure how one extra tune is worth another twenty bucks but perhaps an extremely knowledgeable Metal Gear Solid fan can explain it to me. I'm also hoping gamers outside Japan will have the option of buying this guaranteed-awesome soundtrack; I never got the soundtrack for Castlevania: Symphony of the Night , which still annoys me to this day.
Anyway, Peace Walker could very well be the one game that absolutely every PSP owner wants next year. Just about anything MGS-related is kinda like that.
