Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Maiden
Like Etrian Odyssey IV, the upcoming EO: Millennium Maiden will features orchestral music, and not the FM synth many enjoyed in the first three games. I can’t complain after hearing this Yuzo Koshiro track grabbed from the 3DS remake’s official Japanese site.
Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!! OST
Here’s the full soundtrack for Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage — that’s 34 tracks, nearly an hour and a half of music from the DS and 3DS game. You can also listen to them individually here.
I would’ve loved to have heard some Rebecca Sugar joints in the game, but the OST’s songs with vocals like “Refusing to Refuse” and “Who’s in Charge Here” make up a bit for those deficiencies. But still, throw those in the sequel, guys!
The music for Code of Princess’ “Empurrium” — it’s a store run by a cat, naturally — is one of my favorite shop themes. It’s a silly tune that sounds like something like Cibo Matto would have produced back in the day.

Shin Megami Tensei IV’s music is too good, y’all. It’s just toooooooo good. A minute and a half in? O_O
There’s some debate over who put together this theme (e.g. Shoji Meguro, Kenichi Tsuchiya), but I’m not going to front like I know anything about Japanese composers for niche 3DS games. Let’s just say whoever did it is too good.
Seriously, even if you’re not into first-person dungeon crawlers, it will be worth picking this game up anyway — if it releases here — to enjoy Koshiro’s compositions while taking in Nizo Yamamoto’s landscapes.
And for those who missed it, Koshiro also laid down a tight track for Kid Icarus: Uprising — stream it here.
Memorable music from Shadowrun (SNES). One of the reasons why I’m always talking about this game is nothing played, looked, or sounded like it at the time. Really hope Jordan Weisman finds a way to re-release it one day.
Some great, related news by the way: Weisman and Harebrained Schemes have brought the original composers for the SNES and Genesis games, Marshall Parker and Sam Powell, in to collaborate on Shadowrun Returns’ (PC/tablet) soundtrack. Definitely fund this game if you have the cash — its Kickstarter campaign ends today.
The tiny artwork on the left, by the way, is the seldom seen Super Famicom packaging for Shadowrun.

Dat Yusuke Kozaki art. Here’s the cover for the latest Club Nintendo prize in Japan, a 20-track OST for Fire Emblem: Awakening. I almost want this game to never come out, so there could an endless stream of promo artwork for it.

Cover for Gyakuten Saiban Sound Box, a new CD collection being published by Capcom on February 8. This set collects the music from Ace Attorney 1-3, specifically as it sounded through the “high quality” Wii hardware. Do I need to go back and get the Wii versions now?
I’m glad Capcom is still serving the fanbase for this series in Japan… :(

When Solatorobo: Red the Hunter ships in the U.S. on September 27, each copy will include a soundtrack CD, a replica of the 24-track OST (pictured) that was included with Japan’s collector’s edition. The album features “a full orchestral score that foreshadows the epic struggle for survival that awaits protagonist Red Savarin.”
You’ll pay a bit more for the game because of the pack-in, $34.99, but if the music is as good as import impressions indicate, that’s not so bad. Props to Xseed, “the bravest publisher in America”, for coming up with something extra for fans (even if this is just a ploy to encourage consumers to buy the game instead of pirating it).

Ocarina of Time soundtrack played with the Ocarina of Time. I’m sure most of you don’t need reminding, but Ocarina of Time 3D goes on sale today in North America. Don’t forget to send in your Shokotan poses!

Cave Story 3D’s Egg Corridor music, by Danny Baranowsky. I believe the smartest thing Nicalis can do to instill confidence in the 3DS remake of Cave Story is to continue tweeting samples of the new music. Everything I’ve heard sounds great! Different from the original Pixel version, but still rad.

New Club Nintendo rewards for Japan: Kirby’s Epic Yarn pouches (150 points each) and Donkey Kong Country Returns OST (400 points, 250 if you bought the game).
The 13 x 9 cm cases are available in two colors and have a zippered compartment in the back. It’s probably too tight a fit for a Nintendo 3DS, but I’m sure you can stuff all sorts of other junk in there. The DKCR soundtrack CD includes 25 tracks — see them all (in Japanese) here!
