In addition to an old-school flair and a gorgeous visual presentation by Studio Ghibli, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has another highlight: It's fantastic score.

The original soundtrack, created by accomplished composer Joe Hisaishi, makes the upcoming RPG even more magical. I've always said that an effective score is one of the most important elements of any virtual adventure and that certainly holds true for a game like Ni no Kuni .

If you're interested in how Hisaishi came up with the score you will hear during your travels in Level-5's new title, check out this new behind-the-scenes video in which you'll learn an awful lot about the process. There's an "elegance" to this soundtrack that really suits the style and setting, and just based on the demo, the music will definitely have a profound impact on the overall experience.
