The European division of Namco Bandai Games has been posting up some behind-the-scenes videos concerning the upcoming Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch, and the latest installment (brought to my attention via Crunchyroll) is all about Joe Hisaishi’s work in the production. He briefly discusses his creative process in which he reveals his enthusiasm had him create 21 songs in just one week (that monster), among other things. Towards the end, he even drops a little nugget saying he hopes there is a concert in his future based on this music.
Check out the video above for a look at how things went in the area of music production (spoilers: it went very smoothly). Ni No Kuni is slated for release January 22 (February 1st in Europe).
P.S. Dear Mr Hisaishi: I would go to that concert. Please make it come true.
