GARNiDELiA Provides Theme for Soukai Tenki Nintendo Switch Game
Musical duo GARNiDELiA will perform the theme song Souten for the upcoming Nintendo Switch title Soukai Tenki, scheduled to be released in 2022. The song was also used in the recent Soukai Tenki stage play.
Soukai Tenki is an adventure game with character designs by Teita and a scenario by Yuumi Yamada. The title is listed as a mixed-media project by Otomate, Toho Animation, and Plus81.
In November 2021, GARNiDELiA released their new album ‘Duality Code.’ The duo is currently participating in a nationwide tour.
Comment from GARNiDELiA
We’re very thankful to be given the opportunity to provide the theme song for Soukai Tenki.
Although the characters are separated, love is a powerful force that will always bring people together.
This incredible realization led us as we created the song.
I hope that this song inspires those who listen to it.
This song was inspired by the battles and bonds between men in a world shrouded in darkness.
We created this song with both strength and sadness in mind, and I hope that it sets the stage for the characters’ stories.
