Ni no Kuni a forerunner for best soundtrack of the year? This video makes a compelling case.

ninokuniIt’s kind of unfair, really. Every single game of 2013 will have to compete with acclaimed Studio Ghibli composer Joe Hisaishi for best soundtrack awards because of his involvement with Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. Hisaishi-san is responsible for some of the most fantastic movie soundtracks ever created, working with Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki on virtually every single one of his masterpieces. In part three of a series of behind the scenes videos, Joe Hisaishi describes how be brings his music creation process from films into a video game, and the difficulty (or in Hisaishi-san’s case, complete lack thereof) of doing so. Parts one and two of Namco Bandai’s behind the scenes look at Ni no Kuni can be viewed here, while part three can be viewed after the jump. Ni no Kuni arrives exclusive on PlayStation 3 on January 22nd, that day can’t arrive soon enough.
