Nintendo's Famicom will be receiving its first commercially sold software cartridge in over two decades come early next year, but not the kind you might be expecting for the Japanese NES.
8-BIT MUSIC POWER, an old school collaborative effort between a group of gaming composers, is an appropriately named chiptune album that will be released via Famicom cartridges, thus relying on the system's own hardware to play songs. Though not an officially licensed Nintendo title, video game accessory maker Columbus Circle will be selling the album on January 31st at the retail price of ¥3,800. The team behind the album includes Ape Escape composer Omodaka, Namco arcade games composer Yuriko Keino, and Namco arcade pixel artist Hiroshi Ono.
