To celebrate the June 21st launch of SUPERBROTHERS: SWORD & SWORCERY EP in the island nation of Japan, an entirely new album has been created featuring seven of Jim Guthrie’s songs of sworcery, re-interpreted by a veritable who’s who of Japanese game music composers. The Scythian Steppes: seven #sworcery songs localized for Japan contains tracks from Michiru Yamane (Castlevania: Symphony of the Night), Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Baiyon (PixelJunk 4am), Mitsuto Suzuki (Final Fantasy XIII-2), chiptune artist macotom3, and superhero Decasségui Hip. It’s available now for download on iTunes and bandcamp worldwide. Check out this sampler of snippets from the original tracks and their revamped, revised, reborn reincarnations, localized courtesy of Japan’s finest musical minds, and look below for links to buy any of the tracks, or the full album.
