The Curious Case Of Ni no Kuni’s Unpleasant Battle Music

Kotaku: "The Ni no Kuni soundtrack was composed by longtime Studio Ghibli composer Joe Hisaishi, the man responsible for the scores for films like Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro. Hisaishi's work on Ni no Kuni is one of the most remarkable things about the game, both for its outright quality (it's often jaw-droppingly good) and because it's the kind of grand orchestration and performance that we rarely hear in video games.

But I just don't care for the battle music. Every time it begins playing, it sets my teeth on edge." (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3)
