ITO EN Green Tea Debut New Advert, Including a Green Hill Zone Arrangement by Dreams Come True

Monday, May 17th, 2021

File this one under ‘strange crossovers’ with the talking bunny that sings NiGHTS music; Green Tea specialists ITO EN have unveiled their new advertising campaign in co-operation with Japan pop music legends Dreams Come True. The main advert for the cross-promotion can be seen above, and the music should sound more than a little familiar to anyone reading a SEGA website.

As detailed in a blog post about the advert – yes, it’s just straight-up Green Hill Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog, now with fresh new vocals to go with it! For those unaware, Masato Nakamura of Dreams Come True produced the soundtrack for Sonic 1 & 2, and still owns the rights to the music. So this doesn’t really have anything to do with SEGA in terms of them actually being involved, but it’s very nicely timed for Sonic’s 30th Anniversary nonetheless!

The blog post also says a full version of the arrangement is being made, with vocal recording in progress currently. We’ll keep an eye out for a full version down the line!

Ikaruga Soundtrack to Release on Vinyl Through Data Discs | Merchandise

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020

Data Discs return with another Treasure shoot-em-up classic as they gear up to give a vinyl release to the Ikaruga soundtrack.

Originally released in arcades in 2001 and then the Dreamcast in 2002, Ikaruga is a legendary, vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up famed for its use of a colour-shifting gimmick. This allows the player to absorb enemy fire of the opposite colour to your ship, but enemy fire of the same colour can damage you. The game has subsequently released for GameCube, Xbox 360, PC, Switch and PS4.

The vinyl release of the game’s soundtrack comes on three colourways: a clear with black and white splatter special edition record, a white record and a black record. Also bundled with the release are 4 lithographic prints of artwork by Yasushi Suzuki. Pre-orders go live for the release via Data Discs’ website on Saturday 24th of October 2020. The records are expected to ship around the 20th of November.

SEGA Launches New ‘SEGA Music’ Line With Shin Sakura Wars Vocal Themes Album | Merchandise

The first release under this banner is a 14 track Shin Sakura Wars Complete Works vocal tracks selection CD and a bonus disc containing the karaoke versions of the songs.

Numerous SEGA Soundtracks Vanish from Spotify overnight, including Virtua Fighter, Puyo Puyo, and Team Sonic Racing OSTs

Sunday, February 2nd, 2020

UPDATE

The removed tracks have now returned to the service – along with some new additions, including Phantasy Star Zero, Roommania and Ollie King soundtracks. Much like the last time happened, it seems the downtime had something to do with expanding to other services, as SEGA has added their music library to new services such as Rakuten and LINE Music over the past day or two.

ORIGINAL STORY

And now for some not-so-good SEGA music news – SEGA’s back catalogue on Spotify has suddenly dwindled from the comprehensive selection it offered, virtually overnight – with a seemingly random selection of the company’s beloved music being pulled from the service.

Right now, it’s probably easier to list what is still there than what isn’t; most Sonic soundtracks have survived the cull, as well as soundtracks for Yakuza, Chain Chronicle, Border Break, Rhythm Thief, Jet Set Radio, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD, NiGHTS Journey of Dreams and IDOLA Phantasy Star Saga. Even Rent a Hero’s soundtrack release is still up!

…however, that leaves a lot on the cutting room floor. The original NiGHTS into Dreams soundtracks, for example, are now nowhere to be found. Music from SEGA’s arcade lineage, including Power Drift, Space Harrier, OutRun and others have also been axed from the service. Other soundtracks removed include Virtua Fighter, Puyo Puyo, and even the SEGA Sound Team [.H]’s rearrangement album (although Takenobu Mitsuyoshi’s album From Loud 2 Low is still up, somehow).

Even Sonic wasn’t completely safe – in addition to part of Sonic Generations’ and Sonic Rush’s soundtrack being AWOL for a long time now, Team Sonic Racing’s soundtrack has now also vanished – kind of a confusing removal, given how recent it was.

However, this exodus may not relate to SEGA directly; as noted by several users, albums from EXIT TUNES, a Japanese label responsible for many Vocaloid album releases, have also gone. Could it be a legal thing holding these soundtracks back from the service? The main point of confusion is why certain albums are affected, while others remain up.

It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time SEGA soundtracks have vanished from Spotify – the same thing happened 2 years ago, with many of the same soundtracks affected, and it wasn’t until nearly a month later that they began to return. Fingers crossed we see a similar return this time.
