Are you a fan of Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata's collaborations on Ogre Battle, Final Fantasy Tactics, Opoona, and more? Perhaps you dig Sakimoto's more recent works that include Final Fantasy XII and the Valkyria Chronicles series? Well, if you're a fan of any of that stuff, Magical Chase will blow your mind.

From the duo's early days, Magical Chase features bubbly and upbeat game music that you'd hardly believe was possible given the mature orchestral output from these guys in past couple years. Magical Chase, originally released on the Turbo Grafx in 1991 and later ported to the Game Boy Color, was a colorful side-scrolling shooter that is incredibly rare and is a much sought-after game for collectors. Now, thanks to Basiscape and SuperSweep Records, you can at least own the soundtrack and several remixes found on the album if nothing else.

We'll have a review in next month's Note Worthy, but in the meantime, you can place a pre-order with CD Japan for 2,500 Yen ($26). It will ship on April 26.

Any Magical Chase fans out there want to share their memories of this title? Do you remember anything about the game's soundtrack?

Infestation: Broforce + Alien = Aliens?

It's the perfect fit. Broforce is cheesy, over the top 80s action films distilled into a shooter, a sort of hyperactive Contra. Meanwhile, Aliens is a cheesy 80s action film far removed from Alien's brilliance. Keep...more

Review: Resident Evil HD Remaster

Playing the original Resident Evil was an experience. The mansion, the campiness, the mystery of it all -- before walkthroughs were easily accessible from all corners of the internet, getting lost was practically a given...more
