The soundtracks of following Pokemon games will also make it onto iTunes in due time.
Nothing says nostalgia like the first few notes of the opening movie track to Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen. Released on iTunes yesterday is the Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen soundtrack for $11.99.
The soundtrack contains 90 songs and has adapted and orchestrated versions of the tracks from the Gameboy Advance remakes of Pokemon Red and Blue (Red and Green first in Japan). Junichi Masuda, Go Ichinose, and Morikazu Aoki.
This soundtrack is a part of the Super Music Collection by Game Freak. The first Pokemon soundtrack released as a part of this collection was Pokemon X and Y, the latest Pokemon games with a much updated soundtrack. Future soundtracks in the Super Music Collection will include HeartGold and SoulSilver, Ruby and Sapphire, Diamond and Pearl, Black and White, and Black 2 and White 2.
The Pokemon series has some of the most recognizable music, and the oldschool feel of FireRed and LeafGreen has music my parents would even know. From Pallet Town’s theme to the fanfare of an obtained Pokemon or item to the eerie Lavender Town theme, many Pokemon fans could hum these tunes in their sleep. The soundtrack doesn’t have nearly the amount of songs that X and Y does, but if you want to own all 90 classic songs for just $12, nostalgia and appreciation for well-composed music will thank you.
