Prof.Sakamoto makes soundtracks to imaginary NES games. He’s nailed the sound of a classic RPG, a space shooter, and couple days ago, a ninja action game. I hope someday he’ll follow in Jake Kaufman’s footsteps and work on an actual game. Source: Bandcamp via the same epic Spotify Discover Weekly playlist last November that introduced […]

Yeah, it’s pretty much this music […]
