Do you love anniversaries? There is definitely something about marking a particular event on the calendar, and for those who are avid fans of video games, you ought to take note that 2013 is the year where the humble NES from Nintendo (also known as the “Famicom” in Japan) has just turned 30 this year. I would like to think that this is a unique money making opportunity for Nintendo as well, as the gaming company will be introducing an album that will feature 26 of the best theme songs from classic games such as Super Mario Brothers, The Legend of Zelda and Metroid.
It will arrive in the form of a two-disc album as it hits the market this coming December 4th, which would definitely make it the perfect holiday gift for that particular hardcore gamer in your life, or you can always opt to pick it up yourself by enjoying the simple yet engaging 8-bit tunes of yesteryear. This is the first time that Nintendo is doing such a thing by rolling out a NES theme song anthology, where the songs have been recorded directly from the games in the “clearest possible” manner. So far, we do know that this classic collection of tunes will cost you $24 after conversion, which would be a small price to pay to walk down memory lane.
