It's been 16 years since the world of Pokémon came to life with a memorable musical score. Relive the world of a Kanto once more.
Pocket Monsters Red and Pocket Monsters Green first hit stores in Japan in 1996, with a western debut for Pokémon two years later, and with it came a highly regarded soundtrack by Gamefreak series composer Junichi Masuda. The world of Kanto was bright to life with bright, bouncy and chirpy melodies on the Game Boy and have since found their way into subsequent games and remixes.
A fan group, Pokémon Reorchestrated, decided to pay tribute to the orginal games by compiling a 78-minute orchestrated game of the key tracks from first-generation Pokémon. The album, Kanto Symphony, was released earlier today on iTunes.
For a preview, be sure to have a listen to the teaser trailer:
