Dragon's Dogma soundtrack coming via Square Enix

For the second time in Square Enix's record label history, the company is publishing a soundtrack produced by an outside game company. A new listing on VGMdb confirms that a two-disc soundtrack for Dragon's Dogma will be released by Square Enix on May 23, 2012 for the price of 2,800 Yen ($34 USD). For those who are curious, UTV Ignition's El Shaddai was the first outside title whose soundtrack was published on the Square Enix label.

While the title's producer, Hiroyuki Kobayashi, briefly spoke to us about the game's music, he only referred to the composer as Makino-san, who can now be confirmed to be Capcom's own Tadayoshi Makino. His past works include Monster Hunter 3 (tri) and other titles in the Monster Hunter series, so get ready for a musical treat.

Are you surprised to see Square Enix taking a more active role in publishing music from other developers, and are you looking forward to hearing Tadayoshi Makino's score in the game?
