Grab Ori And The Blind Forest’s Soundtrack From iTunes

Ori and the Blind Forest is a beautiful game with a beautiful soundtrack, and now you can now grab the latter separately.

The composer for the game, Gareth Coker has an interesting educational background that sent him all over the world to hone his craft after graduating from Royal Academy of Music in London, which he has put to good use for Ori. You can check out a video showcasing how the music for the game came together below.

Our Take
I haven't finished Ori yet, but I have been enjoying it tremendously – the game's music being one of its many highlights.

Composers Reimagine Super Mario World’s Amazing Soundtrack

Brothers Karl and Will Brueggemann are composers heavily inspired by video game music, and the two have a new project that's markedly different from the average video game music song cover.

You can check out the video below outlining the project. Basically, the group is trying to use Koji Kondo's composition from Super Mario World and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island as a groundwork to craft their own music in the same style. There's not much like it, and you can hear some of their progress in the latter parts of the video below.

Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Soundtrack Offer Expiring Soon

If you own the Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. you can get a free soundtrack CDs, but you need to act fast.

Right now, you can get a two SSM soundtrack CDs at Club Nintendo by registering both versions of the game on the site. There are two CDs featuring dozens of tracks from the game. The offer is valid through January 13th (this coming Tuesday). This will also register you to receive the previously announced Mewtwo character DLC (that offer is open through March 31).

For more details on how to register, go to Nintendo's official site.

 

Our Take
The soundtrack CDs are a nice offer, but I do think it's odd how many hoops Nintendo is making people jump through just to get one free DLC characters – especially considering that you have to spend $ 100 on both versions of the game just to receive it.

RPG fans have been anxiously awaiting Xenoblade Chronicles X, a spiritual successor to the fantastic Xenoblade Chronicles.

Monolith's open-world Xenoblade Chronicles X is still listed for a release in 2015. Hopefully, we'll hear more about it in the coming months.
