"In case videogame music remix project “World 1-2” left you wanting more, Koopa Soundworks has issued a pre-order page for its upcoming follow-up album, “World 1-2: Encore.“
For those not in the know, “World 1-2″ is a 20-track album comprised of diverse game remixes and original compositions done by such illustrious game composers as Manami Matsumae (Mega Man, Shovel Knight), Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden), Austin Wintory (Journey) and Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill). The album also includes the work of several game music cover artists like Stemage (Metroid Metal) and Video Game Orchestra.
“World 1-2: Encore” focuses (almost) solely on videogame remixes, with several returning artists like Matsumae and Video Game Orchestra dishing out brand new remixes. The album features music from a whole slew of games, spanning titles like Metroid, Mega Man X3, Parasite Eve and even Super Hexagon.
Having given it a whirl several times, I bring you a track-by-track overlook (or review, if you must) of “World 1-2: Encore.” Get ready." - Patrick Kulikowski
