More details on the Metal Gear Solid V Original Soundtrack, over 50 songs included

A few days ago the Original Soundtrack for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain went up for pre-order at Amazon Japan, and now some more information has been released.

First off, the soundtrack is actually for Metal Gear Solid V as a whole, and as such it will contain songs from both Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain.

The two discs that are included will contain over 50 songs, both instrumental and vocal tracks.

An image has also been released, but it looks like this could be just a placeholder and not what the actual cover will look like.

In certain Japanese stores, first buyers will receive a B2 sized poster (limited supply), while those who pre-order at Konami Style will be given some wallpapers for PC and smartphones.

The cd is available for a price of 3348 yen (tax included).

    I believe that the cd cover will be something like the 80s cover of albums inspired with MGSV related stuff.

        Epic cover :).

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    Hope it comes out for the rest of the world as well.
    I want a legit copy of this.

    • Same. Probably will have to use an import shop though.

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        I’l never understand why they don’t sell this kind of things to the rest of the world :(.

    • Gatsu

      Yes I hope so too :)…

          It is up, and it looks like they will ship the poster too 🙂 (while supplies last)

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Thank you, I’ve just ordered mine :D.

          • Boldizar

            No problem! I have been using CDJapan for years. They are great and charge you actual price as opposed to middle man import companies who buy it and raise the price to make a profit of their purchase.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Awesome 🙂 !

  • No Place For Hayter

    AS IF I DIDN’T NEED IT ENOUGH MUST HAVE! Though honestly its not often you get to see a large or complete soundtrack, so this is a must buy. I’m also glad it is the entire “MGSV” so we get GZ as well I was worried that the closest that I would get to GZ was a game rip, thankfully that is not the case.

  • Ground Zeroes had a incredibly nuanced Soundtrack. I can only imagine Williams and the other composers really going all out on this one.

      Gregson-Williams.

      As someone with a hyphenated last name it pains me when people assume half of it is optional :p

      • I know it, I was just on my phone and to lazy to text it out haha

  • Jak

    Just can’t wait to hear Gregson-Williams take on the main theme for this one (though like Metal Gear Saga in 4 I’ll assume it’s cut up and only elements of it will play in the main game. Or maybe it’ll be gone entirely-I’ve never been quite clear on whether or not Konami actually cares about Tappy’s lil spot of plagiarism)

    • The Russians didn’t cared, the music was developed during the Cold War and back them people didn’t owned their work, that belonged to the State, after the fall off the Soviet Union some artist fought for their ownership of their works (like tetris creator), but Sviridov was a nationalist (he got many awards from the soviet Gov) so I doubt he would have wanted to have those particular songs rights, specially “the winter road” a OST for a long forgotten Film about how bad rich Zar people are or something.. also he did LOTS of music for the sate and those are now on public domain, he died in 1997.. his son died a few year after leaving no one to claim anything…

      In the end is just Konami execs just being Konami execs (usually making terrible decisions)

      • Jak

        So was this one in public domain? Beyond that cringe worthy interviewer where the Russian guys show Kojima, I wasn’t actually sure what happened with it on Konamis end (beyond the fact that 4 seemed to do its best to distance itself from it besides the bits around Liquid Ocelot at the end and short clip before the post credits scene).

    • Edward Wokhands

      I still think that it won’t have a traditional main theme. Not one that sticks in your head the same way MGS 1-4 do. There’s a good reason for there being so many real world songs, the setting is incredibly real feeling compared to older games. The less real a game is the more important an orchestral theme is in my opinion. Anyway, I’ll stop repeating myself, I already ranted a ridiculous amount on another story. -_- And annoyed people.

      • Jak

        Huh? It’s already confirmed that Sins is the main theme.

        • Edward Wokhands

          You just said you can’t wait to hear the main theme. If you knew Sins was already the theme then why say that? I didn’t know it was already confirmed! That’s great. It’s just that a lot of people have been arguing with me because I said real world music will be more prominent than the composed soundtrack so sorry if I seemed ranty.

          I agree, real world music will be more important in TPP and I can’t wait to see how the overall soundtrack turns out. I was just saying that I don’t think Gregson-Williams compositions will be as prominent the way the music was in previous games. The music in GZ doesn’t exactly stand out the way it does in previous games. The only theme I’ve heard people mention is the end theme and that’s because it plays over a cutscene.

          I’m sure you agree that all pre Ground Zeroes games have a proper “main theme”, I mean like a Hollywood style orchestral theme, the kind you’d hear in a traditional Spielberg movie. GZ doesn’t have one really, it uses real world music from Chico’s walkman and we’ve heard reports of music playing on radios in the levels because it’s so different and so realistic this time. The soundtrack is drastically different from previous games in that sense. The composed music seems to be ambient, it doesn’t try to stick out, it just creates a subtle atmosphere whereas in previous games it was not only setting an atmosphere but it was compensating for the less realistic visuals.

          Anyway I’m going to shut up before someone calls me pretentious and arrogant again. ¬_¬

          • Jak

            You’re just confusing “main theme of the metal gear solid games” with “main theme of the phantom pain”

            Metal Gear Saga is MGS4s take on the main theme of the franchise, but is not the main theme of the game. Comprende?

            You also seem to have missed the previews that stress how much real world music is in TPP…the same with GZ. Don’t really know how you could have played that and missed Here’s To You as being the main theme of it-only plays at the opening, ending, during the interrogation tapes, is mentioned by the guards etc.

            You’re not being pretentious, you just seem to be basing your opinion on information contradicted by everything we’ve seen and heard thus far.

          • Jak

            To go further, would point out MGS2 is the only game in the franchise that shares the main theme of the game and franchise.

            1s is The Best is Yet to Come (though arguably is Encounter), 3s is obviously Snake Eater.

          • Edward Wokhands

            What? I know that Here’s To You is the main theme of GZ, I just said that in the previous comment didn’t I? That’s the whole basis for my opinion that there’ll be real music in The Phantom Pain and it will be more important than originally composed music. I’m basing my opinion on info contradicted by everything we’ve seen and heard? Sorry but I honestly don’t know what you’re talking about. You just agreed with me but then said I’m contradicting the game?

            I didn’t say that “Metal Gear Saga” is MGS4’s theme.

            I said this:

            “I mean like a Hollywood style orchestral theme, the kind you’d hear in a
            traditional Spielberg movie. GZ doesn’t have one really, it uses real
            world music from Chico’s walkman and we’ve heard reports of music
            playing on radios in the levels because it’s so different and so
            realistic this time. The soundtrack is drastically different from
            previous games in that sense. The composed music seems to be ambient, it
            doesn’t try to stick out, it just creates a subtle atmosphere whereas
            in previous games it was not only setting an atmosphere but it was
            compensating for the less realistic visuals.”

            So why did you say:

            “You also seem to have missed the previews that stress how much
            real world music is in TPP…the same with GZ. Don’t really know how
            you could have played that and missed Here’s To You as being the main
            theme of it-only plays at the opening, ending, during the interrogation
            tapes, is mentioned by the guards etc.”

            I specifically mentioned Here’s To You when I mentioned Chico’s walkman. I’ve been stating the opinion that real world music will be more prominent than composed music since before those previews were released. That’s the only reason I mentioned them.

            Anyway I think we’re talking at crossed purposes here. A misunderstanding has occurred somewhere. I was simply saying that I think real world music being in this game makes the soundtrack different than previous games. I’ve been basing that on Chico’s walkman for a long time and then recently a preview said music was playing on a radio. I’ve seen quite a few people speculating on what the originally composed soundtrack’s main theme will be like, including you. All I said was that I didn’t think the main theme will be composed. You replied with “the main theme is Sins”. If you knew it was Sins (I didn’t know it was Sins, I thought that was just music for a trailer, just like the Garbage song) then why did you wonder what the main theme was? Sins isn’t by Gregson is it? Unless you mean that Sins will be the main theme but that Gregson will also compose a main theme too?

            This is why I hate trying to talk about art and music and so on online, it’s really hard to casually discuss this kind of thing using text without having a massive list of definitions and so on. I think we basically agree but have misunderstood each other.

            I forgot that 1 had “The Best Is Yet To Come” in it. When I say “real world music” I mean just that, music that exists in our world, not Snake’s and Big Boss’s world. There’s never been a diegetic music source in an MGS game, the fact that Chico’s walkman played Here’s To You is why I said any of this to begin with. Sorry if I seemed hostile or something but people have been arguing me for a long time about this and now that it’s been confirmed in previews people are still arguing!

  • What i would like to know is the entire 80’s soundtrack list that comes with the game.

    What i have read so far today… Phew… I won’t say anything, but man… Got me hyped for a while.

    Have a nice day 🙂

    • I hope they rather not put them, is not like we can’t find those songs anyways… is more wasted space for original music… and I hope they put more cutscene music than the generic alert themes that plague metal gear since MGS4… (alert music can be ripped from the game)

  • It wouldn’t hurt konami to release an ALBUM with all the licensed music and some sins of the father remixes as a separate product

  • PrinceHeir

    Can’t wait for this 🙂

  • Shalashaska
  • Edward Wokhands

    …told you so. :p

  • Tong Ninja

    Can’t wait to hear Donna Burke’s songs. Amazing singer! 😀

  • Gatsu

    So many songs oh wow. I need to hear all of them right now 😀 !!!

  • Solid Snakes Revenge

    I hope some of the songs are from mgs3 or mgs4’s iPod. Can’t get enough of songs like sea breeze or sailor. Either way I ‘ll be happy that we get more than a handful of songs like we did in GZ.

  • Melyssa

    I wonder if we’ll get some 80ish songs among the soundtracks? Not existing songs like Here’s to you, but original, MGS-related songs with the 80s vibe. That’d be cool to hear!

  • Revolver Ocelot

    This is a great songgg with 50
