Halo Legends Soundtrack is Coming from Sumthing Else

I don't know about you, but the announcement that the HALO franchise would be receiving an Animatrix-like, production was like music to my ears...and I'm not even that big of a Halo-fan.  The prospect of seeing some eight, anime, episodes created by some of the top anime studios in Japan is pretty exciting.  And, if you are a big fan of franchise's iconic music by MARTIN O'DONNELL and MICHAEL SALVATORI, then you have even more reason to dance a little jig - as thematic material from the two composers will be re-arranged and orchestrated.  Add to that new music by TETSUYA TAKAHASHI (Final Fantasy V and VI) and YASUHARU TAKANASHI (Naruto Shippuden) and we've got the makings of something special.  The official soundtrack will be released by Sumthing Else and will be available on February 9, 2010, a full week before HALO LEGENDS debuts on blu-ray.   Check the full press release below:
