“8BIT MUSIC POWER” now available to pre-order!


You may remember around a month ago we featured an article about “8BIT MUSIC POWER”, a brand new chiptune album from Japan released in Famicom cartridge format! I was quite excited to discover that Japanese artist and programmer RIKI was working on this project, which has now been confirmed for a release on January 31st 2016.


The cartridge, complete with gorgeous artwork and a Famicom-styled box, is being produced by Columbus Circle, Japanese manufacturer of retro gaming-themed goods and merchandise (I actually wrote about some of their products in the first ever post on Minus World!), so you can expect it to be high quality. Unfortunately, the album is being sold through Amazon Japan and is unavailable for international shipping; if you want to get your hands on this unique chiptune item, I’m afraid you’ll be forced to rely on a proxy shipping service such as Tenso. Admittedly, this is quite a big disappointment for western fans of chiptune and the Famicom homebrew scene; I can imagine this would be a highly desirable item otherwise.

You can check it out for yourself on Amazon Japan here, or check RIKI’s website for more info on the track list, as well as a sample video.
