An Update from Reika Morishita - Announcements Hopefully Soon

Fans of Mega Man Legends have been rallying behind singer Reika Morishita for her new arrangements of the original title's Japanese theme songs, but not much has really been heard of it all this time. According to the latest blog post by Morishita, however, that may be changing soon.

Alright, some news at long last. We've arrived at the climax of this whole thing, the mix work. Countless times I've received files to check and adjust, but I'm getting a good feeling it's nearing completion.

Way back when, we'd coop ourselves up in a studio to do mixing, but the times have changed. Now with PCs, there's no need to gather in a studio, but rather mail what you've done back and forth to check. As much as this removes restrictions for us and grants freedom, it also costs time. So there can't help but be additional lag. The engineer goes to the arranger for checks, then it comes to me for checks. And then I give my feedback. Then adjustments. More checks... Whew, honestly, if we all met together it'd be done in a day, but that's not how it works.

How much longer will the files keep coming to me? And how much more will I make requests? Of course, many of these demands are on such an incredibly miniscule level, and to the common person, they might think "What did you even change?" But we've got ears like bats, and will produce only the finest product. So you see, because we've been working with our best effort, it's taken some time. We hope you understand!

I have a mind to begin making announcements sometime this month. Bear with us!

Should Morishita have her wish, we ought to be getting word on the arrangements of "another sun" and "Because Your Wind Blows" pretty soon, perhaps listening as well. Hardly a better time, considering what month it is.
