This piano tribute to classic Super Nintendo games from Square (now Square-Enix, so I've heard) will turn you into a blubbering JRPG fanboy in mere moments. Evocative arrangements of some standards from the likes of Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, and more.Read More
Both Shnabubula and sci-fi sports game fiction both hold a special place in my heart. It's the best of both worlds with the latest spo-sci-fi music collection Cybersoccer 4141.
The debut game soundtrack by Yasunori Mitsuda is still considered one of the greatest in video game history. Trevor Gomes pays tribute to some of the memorable themes from the 20 year old SNES game.
10 classic tracks.
only posting this a year late, so the titular 'Finally" can also apply to this blog post. Incredible renditions of classic music from Mario Kart, Sonic, Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Castlevania, and more!
These Bacterian fighting themes have never been more infectious
Do you think there is a future for the Gradius series? Konami is a sinking ship, and shmups aren't exactly the hottest genre these days. What changes would you make to the Gradius series to bring into the modern day of gaming?
You know you want to start a new save file after hearing this
Get caught up in Keiji Inafune's take on Hyrule Town in this adventurous remix by Kim Kev
After Mighty No. 9, perhaps Inafune would be interested in creating a new top down adventure in the style of Legend of Zelda? I would absolutely help kickstart that idea. Let us know what you think of the idea in the comments!
A stunning series of arrangements of music from the classic role playing games Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana. The album is masterfully done, and will move you to your nostalgic core as you think about some of the greatest moments in those two games as Sébastien Ridé performs classic themes on piano.
My personal favorites are any time something from Chrono Trigger is played, as I am not nearly as familiar with the catalogue of music from the Secret of Mana series. I expect several people to scold me for that fact after this post.
If you enjoy the album as much as I did, you can purchase it via loudr starting at $5.
A chilling piano arrangement of the carefree tune.
A chilling piano based adventure in the Hyrule market from Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. I think this track will be an instant classic for anyone who is a fan of the game.
Incredible piano arrangements from a variety of games, all rearranged with great care in Brian Cubria's Video Game Piano Arrangements Vol. 1. Little flourishes and references in each song will warrant intense repeated listening for fans of games such as Final Fantasy VII, Shadow of the Colossus, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and personal favorite, the intro stage theme from Mega Man X.
I do have to admit, my favorite track just tends to be the one I'm listening to, since they are all so impressive.
This rearrangement straddles the line between simple relaxation and haunting loneliness in under five minutes. Listen to the somber piano driven sounds of the Song of Healing by Brian Cubria and get washed away in the cursed world of Termina.
A beautiful medley of songs from the also beautiful Claire W. of the PrettyPrettyPianist Youtube. The songs are from a pillar of gaming perfection, The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. This medley is only five minutes long but travels throughout Hyrule with precise, flowing rhythms. This is just one of many amazing piano renditions available on her youtube page.
Armed with only a piano, DeusPony delivers video games, in the form of that piano. The piano makes music. The music is performed by DeusPony. It all works out very well. Especially for those who listen to the classy instrumentals in the DeusPony release Video Games to Piano.
