In a crowd-pleasing move, a bunch of Capcom game soundtracks have been added to Spotify. The music from the Japanese video game giant was added to the Capcom Sound Team page. The page includes tracks from classic and modern titles. The Capcom game soundtracks on their Spotify page are a welcome change on a service which traditionally only included music from popular US companies like Bethesda and Naughty Dog (via Reddit). However, Capcom’s fellow Japanese company Sega does also currently have a Spotify page. The range of music spans almost all of the Capcom game soundtracks library. Spotify listeners can access tracks from the likes of Mega Man 11, Devil May Cry 3, and Monster Hunter. One Reddit user heaped praise on Capcom for the move and hopes other companies do the same: “This is unreal, I actually can’t believe they’ve done this. I hope this becomes standard practice one day, it’d be very nice to easily put together diverse video game music … [Read more...] about Capcom game soundtracks added to Spotify

Capcom fans can now listen to their favourite in-game tunes on Spotify. Spotted by Twitter user @_watsu, via ResetEra, Spotify is now home to a ton of OSTs from Capcom games, including soundtracks featured in multiple titles from the Devil May Cry, Mega Man, and Monster Hunter series.

Spotify's selection of videogame soundtracks recently got a massive infusion of Japanese music thanks to the Capcom Sound Team, which has dumped tons of Capcom soundtracks, new and old, onto the streaming service. Spotify's a good destination for game soundtracks if you're looking for something like Uncharted or Skyrim, but if you're looking for music from Zelda or Final Fantasy or most other big Japanese series, you're out of luck. But Capcom, apparently, is all aboard the Spotify train, as pointed out by Twitter user Walt.The Capcom Sound Team Spotify page includes some recent works, like Mega Man 11 and Street Fighter 5.

There are some one-offs like Okami, some remix albums, and special composed albums like "Monster Hunter The Jazz."

Nintendo reportedly canceled a planned Mother 3 localization due to the game’s controversial themes. Fans of the series, known as Earthbound in the west, have repeatedly requested that Mother 3 be brought to these shores. However, it has now been alleged that while Nintendo previously planned to do so, the company has ceased development on the project altogether. The news comes from GameInformer editor Imran Kahn, who responded to a ResetEra post discussing the likelihood of Mother 3 appearing in the next Nintendo Direct. Imran said that the localization was a “dead end,” adding: “It was full steam ahead for a while but upon re-evaluation there were aspects of the game that weren’t going to go without controversy.” Mother 3 is a notably darker entry in the series, with its central theme focusing on bereavement. It also features many instances of animal cruelty and drug use, making it a tricky … [Read more...] about Rumor: Nintendo canceled Mother 3 localization due to controversial themes
