Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka is composing new music for PS5, PS4 game Stray Souls



Legendary Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka has announced that he is composing new music for the PS5, PS4 indie horror title: Stray Souls. Said to be inspired by the survival horror series out of Konami, it’s apparently releasing later this year, and you can get a first look in the trailer above.

The reason we say “apparently” is because according to one Xbox Wire Post about the game, developer Jukai Studio only “opened its doors officially in 2022”. Unless the title was actually being made before last year, that’s an absurdly fast turnaround. Still, Stray Souls is designed to be “a truly immersive player experience inspired by the classics of the genre. To accomplish this, the team prioritized excellent audio, and for that, they turned to none other than Akira Yamaoka , whose work on Silent Hill made the series iconic.”

In the reveal trailer, you can hear Yamaoka’s latest track Splintered Minds. As for the game itself, here’s the story setup: “Dive into the mind of Daniel, a teenage boy who has inherited a house from his estranged grandmother. As he moves in, the dark secrets hidden within the house and Daniel’s past comes out. THE WOODWORKS – SECRETS Daniel doesn’t seem forward…”
