Astute listeners have probably noticed that many of the sound effects in the Backer Preview are different from those in the original Prototype we released all the way back in 2015.
As you may know, with Autumn Games’ permission, we used Skullgirls sound effects as placeholders in the prototype.
Since then we’ve tried several sound engineers, but struggled to find one who would could get us the kind of sounds we were looking for.
Many of Lab Zero’s art staff are friends with the wonderful people at fighting game developer French Bread, creators of the Melty Blood and Under Night In-Birth games. Through that friendship we decided to reach out to their sound effects creator and composer, Raito.
Raito’s sounds were just what we were looking for – they perfectly straddled the line between realistic and synthetic, while staying clear and communicative.
We’re extremely happy to have Raito on board, so keep an ear out for his excellent sound effects work in the future!
And here’s a short video message from the man himself:
