Konami to release 53 game soundtracks

Konami has released the soundtracks of 53 of their old school titles, over 1000 individual tracks, via the online music store Chakushin Uta (releative linkage). The site itself is Japanese, and it has not been made clear if Konami will release the soundtracks internationally, but it is a step in an awesome direction for video game music lovers everywhere.

The tracks went up for sale on the 21st of December (2016). I had a poke around the site and it looks like you need a Konami ID, which *I think* can be set up from anywhere on planet, and not just the land of the rising sun. The albums themselves seem to be quite cheap at around 500 Yen per piece.

Some of the soundtracks on offer include;

  • MSX Racing Spirit 3D Special
  • Double Dribble
  • Konami Waiwai World 1 & 2
  • Ai Senshi Nicol
  • Lagrange Point
  • Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa
  • Esper Dream 1 & 2
  • Contra
  • Castlevania
  • Dragon Scroll
  • The Adventures of Bayou Billy
  • Final Command: Red Fortress
  • Gradius II
  • Rush’n Attack
