Nintendo to Release Special 30th Anniversary Album of Famicom Music
Posted by Martin Watts
And it looks to be a Japan exclusive
Amazon Japan has added a new product listing for Nintendo FAMICOM MUSIC, an upcoming music album to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Nintendo's breakthrough games system, the Famicom — or Nintendo Entertainment System as we know it in the West.
Due to release on 4th December, the album is being produced by Nintendo itself and will contains 26 theme songs from numerous Famicom classics. The line-up includes globally renowned tunes such as the Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda themes, as well as tracks from obscure titles like Devil World and Famicom Wars. The album will cost ¥2,400 (roughly $24/£15 at the time of writing) and the recordings — which are taken directly from the games — will supposedly be the "clearest possible". Unfortunately, Nintendo hasn't announced any plans to bring this album, or at least something similar, to the West.
