In a special update, composer Falk Au Yeong today provided more insight into the musical direction of Re:Legend. Yeong, who is working alongside Shota Nakama and Yoshitaka Suzuki on this project, says “Our concept for the music soundscape of Re:Legend borrows from core concepts that have worked to deliver memorable melodies in a dynamically changing format, and builds on those in new ways.” Read the full update here, and watch legendary flutist Burak Besir perform the Re:Legend day theme in a brand new video below
