Boss Battles For The Soul Out Now!

Last November we posted about a KickStater project from Mark Reichwein, a musician/composer from Japan with a love of 16-bit music. Well, not only did he hit his goal, Boss Battle For the Soul can be purchased now!

We had a chance to listen to this digital album and it does sound like it's being pumped out of an SNES! What is fascinating is that this is all original music, composed and styled to fit into some all time classics. Music that sounds like it belongs in titles like Chrono Trigger, Super Mario RPG, Final Fantasy, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and more!

The best part? Since all stretch goals were met, we have 5 more pieces being released this December! 

So, go and support Mark over at Bandcamp
