Update 01/10/2021: Guilty Gear Strive Original Soundtrack Volume 1 is now on Spotify (and other streaming services), including several character themes and the iconic “Smell of the Game” theme song.
Guilty Gear has consistently served up some of the best music in videogame history. As of today, almost every Guilty Gear soundtrack is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube Music, and Amazon’s music platforms for your listening pleasure, along with music from a bunch of other Arc System Works games.
Here’s the full list of what’s available, with Spotify links:
- Guilty Gear Sound Complete Box, which includes:
- Disc 1: Guilty Gear Original Sound Collection, except the tracks “Prologue (Shout & Burning)” and “Epilogue (The Missing Link)”
- Disc 2: Guilty Gear X Original Soundtrack, Disc 1
- Disc 3: Guilty Gear X Original Soundtrack, Disc 2
- Disc 4: Guilty Gear X Heavy Rock Tracks ~ The Original Sound Track of Dreamcast!!
- Disc 5: Guilty Gear XX Original Soundtrack, Disc 1
- Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- Original Sound Track
- Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- Original Sound Track
- Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 Original Sound Track
- Guilty Gear 2 Overture Original Soundtrack Vol.1
- Guilty Gear 2 Overture Original Soundtrack Vol.2
That list covers the main OSTs for every Guilty Gear game to date, with the notable exception of Guilty Gear XX #Reload Korean Version Original Sound Track, possibly due to licensing reasons. That’s a bit of a shame, because the Korean #Reload OST is great—a completely original soundtrack composed and arranged by Korean metal band N.EX.T, giving it a different flavour to the Daisuke Ishiwatari-composed soundtracks—but what can you do?
In addition, Arc System Works has released a handful of soundtracks from other games:
- Blazblue Sound Complete Box (streaming platforms only, no digital downloads)
- Double Dragon Sound Collection Vol. 1
- Kunio-kun series:
- Downtown Nekketsu Koushinkyokusyu (Downtown Nekketsu March)
- Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari SP Original Sound Track (River City Ransom SP Original Soundtrack)
- Downtown Nekketsu Jidaigeki Original Soundtrack (Downtown Special Kunio-kun’s Historical Period Drama! Original Soundtrack)
- Detective Jinguji Saburo series (Jake Hunter series):
There’s been a growing trend lately of game publishers making their soundtracks available on Spotify, so it’s nice to see Arc System Works giving the same treatment to Guilty Gear, Blazblue, and all the rest.
