The album will include famous songs from Final Fantasy, Skyrim, DuckTales and more. The new renditions of these songs are adapted to sound like calming lullabies, whereas in-game they had a different tone.

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.
