Nearly half of my music collection is from videogames, and it gets a lot of play in my iTunes. I figure, if I don't always have the time to replay the games I loved, I can at least listen to the music and wax nostalgic in my imagination.

Namco Bandai has decided to make it all the easier on fans like me to get our game music fix with the announcement of Namco Sounds, an iTunes label focused exclusively on the distribution of music from their games. They launch with selections from Pac-Man, Xevious, and Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny and they will be adding new songs on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month.

Also exclusive to iTunes is Soulcaliber Suite: The Resonance of Swords and Souls, which is the soundtrack to Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, performed by the Eminence Symphony Orchestra. You can score individual tracks for 99 cents each or the full albums for $2.99. I'll be looking forward to their future release, as there are several Namco titles I haven't gotten around to getting the soundtracks for yet. Eternal Sonata, please!

NAMCO BANDAI Games announces the NAMCO SOUNDS™ music label for iTunes

New Label to Offer a Catalogue of Music from the Company’s Vast Library of Games

SANTA CLARA, Calif., (September 2, 2009) – Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc., today announced the launch of NAMCO SOUNDS™, an exclusive iTunes music label offering re-mastered soundtracks from the company’s own catalogue of games. In partnership with BANDAI VISUAL CO., LTD, this marks NAMCO BANDAI Games’ debut into the North American music distribution market with plans to create and offer new content for global distribution.

To inaugurate this launch, NAMCO SOUNDS has released tracks from PAC-MAN®, Xevious®, and SOULCALIBUR® SUITE - THE RESONANCE OF SOULS AND SWORDS. Subsequent releases from games past and present will be available on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month.

Only available through NAMCO SOUNDS on Apples iTunes, SOULCALIBUR SUITE - THE RESONANCE OF SOULS AND SWORDS is a special soundtrack that commemorates the September 1 release of SOULCALIBUR: Broken Destiny for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system.  Performed by the Australia-based Eminence Symphony Orchestra which is renowned for their work in anime and videogames, this soundtrack was an intercontinental feat as directions were given from Tokyo with the performance, conducting and recording taking place in Sydney simultaneously.
Single tracks from PAC-MAN, Xevious, and SOULCALIBUR SUITE - THE RESONANCE OF SOULS AND SWORDS retail for $.99 with the entire album available for $2.97 or $2.99 respectively.
