And I honestly hope your wallets are ready for them.
The folks at SEGA are working on double time as of late. From the North American premiere of Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph last weekend, where the blue blur made numerous cameos, and with Sumo Digital’s Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on the way this month, some would expect that that would be all from SEGA for the upcoming holidays. With everyone’s attention elsewhere, SEGA has quietly released numerous soundtracks onto the iTunes market.
Available for select regions, specifically the US, Japan, and most of Europe, the onslaught of soundtrack releases began last week with Sonic the Hedgehog Original Soundtrack and Sonic Unleashed Original Soundtrack: Planetary Pieces. Eager fans of Sonic Unleashed and Sonic 2006‘s music may now procure the complete soundtrack to both games!
And today (by EST standards, mind you!), I was notified by TRiPPY of NightsintoDreams.com that NiGHTS into dreams… Perfect Album and NiGHTS: Journey into Dreams Original Soundtrack have both snuck onto the digital music marketplace as well! The timing is perfect, considering that NiGHTS into Dreams saw an upgraded rerelease onto XBLA and PSN worldwide just last month (which, if you haven’t bought and played already, you should)!
Now, though some of you might be jumping for joy at the moment, there is reason behind the fact that you should ready your wallets.
Take note that each represented Sonic Team title boasts gargantuan musical anthologies, so each game has their music split into three albums each. Translation: a total of 12 soundtracks alone! Each album clocks in at £7.99/US $9.99/¥1,200, so multiply that by…
If you can afford to support the good folks working the music behind the games (and if you’re in the aforementioned areas), buy the albums today!
I know I would…
