Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc., through its licensing relationship with SEGA®, proudly presents MADWORLD™ Official Soundtrack featuring 20 original HipHop songs from the inventive third person action game developed by PlatinumGames. MADWORLD Official Soundtrack is released today to retail outlets through Sumthing Else Music Works www.sumthing.com, and will be available for digital download on Sumthing Digital www.sumthingdigital.com and iTunes®.
MADWORLD Official Soundtrack includes all 20 original songs from the game produced by PlatinumGames composer Naoto Tanaka in collaboration with HipHop and Rap artists OX, Doujah Raze, Sick-YG, Bandy Leggz, Wordsmith, S.O.U.L. Purpose, and Optimus. Featuring explicit lyrics, the provocative soundtrack reflects MADWORLD's highly stylized graphics and visceral gameplay.
"There are a total of 20 tracks on the MADWORLD soundtrack and they are all original songs that we produced especially for the game," said composer and soundtrack producer Naoto Tanaka. "I would make the backing tracks (or the beats) and then we would hand them off to these talented artists to get their performances. It was a pretty big challenge, especially as it was my first time with this kind of collaboration, but I think luck was on my side and it turned out to be extremely successful."
Driven into quarantine and chaos in Varrigan City, you take on the character role of Jack in MADWORLD's challenging storyline, as you experience over-the-top action combined with fast and instinctive arcade-style gameplay and a multitude of outrageous moves. With its irreverent humor and survival of the fittest gameplay in a graphic novel world, MADWORLD delivers a unique gaming experience on the Wii.
