SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE–EVOLUTIONAL THEORY– Album Released

LONDON (April 18, 2011)– TAITO Corporation (TAITO®), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd., today announced the release of the SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE®–EVOLUTIONAL THEORY–™ soundtrack album. The album is available for download via the iTunes® Store.

The Cool Sounds of SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE Hit iTunes!

SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE™ is a shooting game with evolution as its central theme. Originally released for the iPhone® and iPod touch® and then digitally distributed on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft edition via Square Enix, SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE received several awards both domestically and abroad, and continues to receive strong support worldwide. Sharing the game’s evolutionary theme, the soundtrack’s fresh techno sound has also received international critical acclaim, and its appeal spreads far beyond the game music genre.

Entitled SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE–EVOLUTIONAL THEORY–, this comprehensive soundtrack collects all of the music from the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad version as well as the subsequent PlayStation®3 system/Xbox 360 release. While the album is an excellent way for existing fans to relive the music from the game, it will also give the uninitiated a glimpse into the world of SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE.

A Message from the Creators

“SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE originally debuted as a Java phone game, but it soon evolved into an iPhone/iPod touch hit and then finally into a PlayStation®3 system/Xbox 360 release. The evolution continues: now the soundtrack is breaking away from the game, transforming into a stand-alone CD and digital download. The entire history of the evolution of SPACE INVADERS is concentrated in this one album, and we hope you’ll experience it for yourself.”

–Hirokazu Koshio (ZUNTATA), Composer

“I believe that this album will break through the wall isolating game soundtracks from music in general.”

–Reisuke Ishida, Album Art Director and the Director of SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE
