Square Enix to release a righteous chiptune album

Jun 25 // Tony Ponce    @megaStryke

Earlier this month, we told you that Square Enix would be releasing a gargantuan 20-disc collection of Mana series music. Well, SE isn't done making love to your eardrums and is readying another collection of jams, SQ Chips, that pulls tracks from the Final Fantasy series, Chrono Trigger, Unlimited SaGa, Brave Fencer Musashi, the Mana series, and more!

This is not just any ol' arrangement album, though. Each of these tunes is run through the retro filter and spit out as 8-bit chiptunes. Ever heard of Chiptuned Rockman, that awesomely meta remix CD that reworked music from the entire Mega Man series, even the SNES and PS1 titles, as NES tracks? If SQ Chips is even half as amazing as that, we'll be in for a treat!

SQ Chips will drop on September 7 for the (cheap by Japanese standards) price of 1890 yen ($23.50). I'm getting it!
