Despite numerous scheduling conflicts yesterday at MAGFest, we did get the chance to pop in on the Bad Dudes panel where they announced that their next project will be a physical remix album dedicated to EarthBound. We've been told to expect a vocal performance by our own Dale North, and my favorite track from the game, "Paula's Prison," will also be featured. It should be ready before next year's MAGFest rolls around.
Additionally, Fangamer, who is now distributing Bad Dudes merchandise, will have an entire product line dedicated to EarthBound, of which this CD is just one part. In other news, A_Rival was initiated into the fold as the latest Bad Dude, so get ready for even more awesomeness from the group moving forward.
Will you be picking this album up? Do you have any requests that you'd like passed along to the team?
