On March 30, 2017, Spinnup records released the official soundtrack to Metroid: The Bounty Hunter’s Judgement, a fan film currently in production by OutPort Studio which is part of The Project Pack. According to the artist, this project was developed to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Metroid, as a tribute to Hirokazu Tanaka, Kenji Yamamoto and Minako Hamano for composing music for this franchise, and to Toby Fox for composing and developing Undertale. You can listen to the entire album which runs around 20 minutes below.
This is the result of months of research, composing, arranging, playing and recording, and with the huge support of thousands of talented people, this 8 track album was possible. Music, as any other form of art, exists to protect and sustain a way of expression, and with It, protects a way to experience and approach a theme.
Fan art is now protecting both of them as hard as ever.We want to thank all of the Metroid community for keeping the franchise alive and relevant. From the speed running community, to the modding, hacking, illustration, music and game developing community, all of you are the ones who keeps us believing that Samus adventures are not over.
We want to thank Milton Guasti (DoctorM64) for creating the perfect fan game with AM2R, and making the ultimate gift for the fans on the exact 30th Anniversary of the Metroid.
The album is also available on iTunes, Spotify, and purchase an official digital copy of Amazon. Although a release date for the fan film has not been announced, OSV will keep you posted?
