The Play For Japan initiative has done a lot to help raise funds for those affected by last month's earthquake and tsunami, but Play For Japan: The Album will be giving a lot back to you in return.

Due for release next month, the album gets together some of the greatest composers working in the medium today, like Nintendo legend Koji Kondo, Final Fantasy's Nobuo Uematsu, Silent Hill's Akira Yamaoka, Tommy Tallarico, Hip Tanaka and even Battlestar Galactica's Bear McCreary.

Those men and more will each have a single work showcased on the album, from which 100% of all proceeds go to the Japanese Red Cross. The album will be available on iTunes in "early June".
