Featuring Solar Striker and folk music.

Greetings fellow game music lovers,

people can sometimes be surprised to hear that there was a time where Nintendo experimented with all kinds of genres beyond the platforming and exploration genre.

Sadly Nintendo has neglected the shooter genre in the last decades a little bit. Fortunately, R-Type Final 2 is coming!
