Nintendo Releasing Album Of 8-bit Theme Songs To Celebrate 30 Years Of NES


Nintendo Japan has announced that it is due to release an album full to the brim with classic eight bit songs to celebrate a whopping thirty years of the Nintendo Entertainment System. The album will contain twenty-six of the best songs from classic games like The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Brothers, and Metroid. The album will come on two discs and will be released in Japan on December 4th. There’s currently no word as to whether this intriguing album will come to the west. If I hear anything I will let you all know.

  1.  Super Mario Bros.
  2. Donkey Kong
  3. Donkey Kong Jr.
  4. Mario Bros.

  1. Olhem sinceramente não entendo o que se passa aqui, vocês deviam preocupar-se mais com outras coisas como o BM. O BM é incrível e eu adoro-o.

  2. This album will definitely compete and win against Lady Gaga’s new album. I can’t wait to see Nintendo win once again >:3

  3. Album of the year, folks. I love Nintendo music! Did you guys know that the Super Mario Bros. theme song was once considered to be made Japan’s official National Anthem? Japan is awesome! They should have done it.

  4. Such an album is great news, but I’d like to point out that I think “thirty years of the NES” is a misused term. The NES has not been supported for thirty years, rather it is thirty years old. It’s like playing Super Mario Bros one year, waiting thirty years, and saying I’ve been a gamer for thirty years. “Thirty-year Anniversary of the NES” sounds more appropriate.

    1. I don’t consider 26 tracks to be “filled to the brim”. But I SO want this CD. I hope it’s not a Japan-only thing. I’ll have to import if it is.

      – Mario Kart 8
      – Super Mario 3D World
      – Bayonetta 2
      – Donkey Kong Country : Tropical Freeze
      – Super Smash Bros 4
      – X

      1. Anyone know if Palm Tree Groove jazz song from Donkey Kong Country Returns is also going to be on Tropical Freeze as well
