While not quite an interactive rhythm title, a new Famicom cart is creating a buzz as it is essentially an 8-bit “mixtape” arranging creations from known Japanese game composers.

8 BIT MUSIC POWER is now available, combining efforts from  Yuriko Keino (Xevious, Pac-Land), Takeaki Kunimoto (Star Soldier, Ninja Hattori-kun), Masahiro Kajihara (Trigger Heart Exelica, Princess Maker) and more. The cart also houses pixel art created by  Hiroshi Ono (Pac-Land, Bahamut Lagoon, Final Fantasy Tactics).

The track list is as follows:

01 / 2:36 / BLACK CARTRIDGE : Hally
02 / 2:06 / PICO MY HEART : Takeaki Kunimoto
03 / 2:16 / CIRCUS GAME : Hiroaki Sano
04 / 3:46 / MASS PURPLE : Keishi Yonao

10 / 4:46 / KIRAKIRA BUSHI : Omodaka
