As gamers are already well aware, Ghost of Tsushima is now available in a Director’s Cut that includes tons of new stuff, including a territory called Iki Island.
That new area features music composed by Bill Hemstapat and friend of the site Chad Cannon, a composer who regularly works with Joe Hisaishi, and who spent a few years living in Japan. Those years have had an obvious affect on his music, as is apparent when diving into the music for Iki Island.
There’s a new blog entry over at the official PlayStation site that details the hard work that went into that soundtrack, including the recruitment of many top musicians from Japan and Mongolia — all while recording remotely due to the pandemic.
Click over and check out some of the behind-the-scenes stories, and hear some excellent tunes on classic instruments like the shamisen, shakuhachi, koto and more.
