It’s a good day to be a fan of Donkey Kong Country, Rare, and video game music.

There's something about that elevator music that sounds quite familiar, wouldn't you say?
Square Enix just launched a free, browser-based music service called Square Enix Audio. It’s pretty easy for English-speakers to navigate even though the site is intended for a Japanese audience.

Leaked from their panel during PAX 2010, OverClocked ReMix revealed their next free-to-download tribute album: Final Fantasy V: The Fabled Warriors. Try saying that three times fast. Not exactly a surprise since their work on Final Fantasy IV awhile back was really solid. On the other hand, this [...]

Two surprises in one package, eh? Not too bad. As you can see, graphic style and gameplay look similar to Mega Man: Powered Up, only less Chibi. Two things are revealed at the end of the trailer: Ryu as a playable character and the people responsible for the rocking music remixes. Guess what? [...]
Ever since the announcement of the long-awaited revival of the Donkey Kong Country series, I’ve been curious about its composer. It’s not because my bias towards video game music.

Welcome to our ongoing feature in which we highlight talented musicians who arrange/cover videogame music! That’s quite a mouthful, but isn’t much compared to the handle name of today’s artist: SongeLeReveur. I’m pretty sure it’s French for “I am awesome” since his YouTube profile says he’s from [...]
