Konami is actually the twentieth biggest game company in the world, ranked by revenue. They are a very broad company, with a spectrum in trading cards, anime, slot machines, tokusatsu, video games (of course), even health and fitness clubs in Japan, and various other industries. They’ve created popular games like Castlevania, Dance Dance Revolution, Frogger, Metal Gear, Silent Hill, and Yu-Gi-Oh!.

Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty – Soundtrack

Kojima actually ended up deciding to go with Harry Gregson-Williams, a composer from Hans Zimmer’s studio. Gregson-Williams would work based on short descriptions of what was going on, this was how they managed to get past the differences of language and let him work on the score while the cut-scenes were also being worked on. The music in the Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty cut scenes has music from an orchestra and choir and there is ambient music while the player is running around. The main element is a bit more electronic than the prequel, which helps show Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty has progressed into a world of machines.
