New York, November 7th, 2012 - Sumthing Else Music Works, through its licensing relationship with Capcom U.S.A, Inc., proudly presents Dragon's Dogma™ Original Soundtrack featuring the original music score from Capcom's exciting new action role-playing game franchise. The original soundtrack from Dragon's Dogma™ was composed by Tadayoshi Makino ( Monster Hunter™), Inon Zur ( Dragon Age), Rei Kondoh ( Devil May Cry® 4) and Chamy Ishi ( Devil May Cry 4). Dragon's Dogma Original Soundtrack will be released on November 13th to retail outlets through Sumthing Else Music Works, and for digital download at Amazon MP3, iTunes and other digital music sites. 

From the creators behind Capcom's critically acclaimed action games Resident Evil® 4 and Devil May Cry 4, Dragon's Dogma draws upon this pedigree to deliver deep, fulfilling combat in an epic adventure. Set against a high fantasy backdrop in a huge open world, players challenge a fearsome dragon and set forth on an incredible journey to discover the mythical beast's secrets and end the cycle of destruction. Dragon's Dogma redefines the Action-RPG genre with exhilarating skill-based action combat, free exploration of a rich environment, and the unique Pawn system. 

"The original concept for the music of Dragon's Dogma was music that the listener could physically feel, such as the rush of the winds and the pull of the tides, but I took care to not make each piece too assertive," said Tadayoshi Makino, main composer of Dragon's Dogma . "I thought by using the smaller pieces as accents, I would be able to make the all-important main theme that much memorable. I poured everything I had into expressing the splendour and uniqueness of the Dragon's Dogma world."
