Sega will be publishing their own in-game soundtracks and other original music through a new label. Simply called Sega Music, it will also make all future in-game music available to hear through their new brand.
According to Games Industry, the launch of Sega Music starts with a soundtrack called Sakura Wars: Complete Collection, which was released earlier this week. The label will also support third-party producers creating in-game music, including Wave Master Entertainment who worked on Sakura Wars.
A release promised players will also get to access more soundtracks in the not-too-distant future while all of their games will have support from Sega Music following launch. Players could also expect music to release either on the same day as its game or shortly after depending on the producer.
A logo was also shown with Sega Music and a blue waveform translates into the company’s signature phrase at the start of all their games. So far, the Sega Music label was introduced in Japan and it’s not clear when it will expand into North America and Europe.
As seen with Capcom’s own music brand, Sega Music leaves the door open for distributing past soundtracks from franchises including Sonic the Hedgehog and the Bayonetta series. Players could also bump to throwback The House of the Dead or Super Money Ball soundtracks if producers choose to revisit each franchise in their library.
