Over it’s multi-decade run, the Kirby series has accrued quite a collection of memorable tunes, many of which get revisited time and again in latter releases. Indeed, there’s a certain kind of wondrous playfulness to much of Kirby’s music; there’s nothing else out there quite like it. In celebration of this long musical history, and as a follow up to the Japanese symphony orchestra that was celebrating the series’ 25th anniversary, HAL has opted to put not one, not two, but three Kirby soundtracks live on music services around the globe.
Head on over to iTunes, Google Play, or Spotify and you’ll see that Kirby 25th Anniversary Orchestra Concert, Kirby Memorial Arrangement, and Kirby: Planet Robobot Original Soundtrack are up for purchase. That first one features tracks from the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra that put on the 25th Anniversary concert, the second features new tracks from the same orchestra that didn’t show up at the concert, and the third one features the complete soundtrack of Kirby’s last major 3DS release. If this sounds like something that interests you, be sure to give the music a listen. Who knows, maybe if there’s enough interest, that orchestra might come overseas…
