Oh, hello there. Did not see you there, fellow TAYlanders. Ah, it has been a while, hasn’t it? How is everyone? All good? I have been same, same. Lots of work, so much work... It’s amazing we are already in May and e3 is right around the corner! Exciting times ahead! But today I am here on some other shiryus business...
I came to you today to present my second video game related released of 2015, a bit bitter sweet this one. The poster on my left says it all really, it’s the culmination of the past five years (wow... time flies so fast!), the tenth volume of my video game tribute side project Shiryu’s Arcade.
Expect to find among the forty(!) tracks the usual suspects: Castlevania, Secret of Mana, Turrican, Super Metroid, Phantasy Star IV, Top Gear, Earthworm Jim for the first time along with Final Fantasy VI... ah, best I not spoil the surprise of finding them all for yourselves. I hope they bring you some awesome, nostalgic retro gaming memories.
In good old Shiryu Music tradition, you can get this album for free or just stream it over from YouTube. Pick your poison any of the links below:
That is all for now. I am very happy to have released this today because I have a feeling Splatoon will eat all my free time from next week onwards. Don’t worry tough, this might be the very last Shiryu’s Arcade but it’s definitely not the last time I will visit video game music (and I will do my best to keep posting all of them over here in TAYland).
I would also like to thank the usual suspects (you know who you are) for the opportunity of making me an Author in TAY. The amount of work and pace I picked up in 2014 has allowed me to become a guest columnist at Nintendo Life since last April. I very much doubt that would have happened without my time in this place.
See you around folks, enjoy those tunes! Play Hard, Play Loud! ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ
