Here's Red Bull's (surprisingly good) Japanese game music documentary


Go Diggin' In the Carts

I never would've imagined that a company best known for a drink designed to keep you awake for all-nighters doing your college thesis would come up with a pretty great documentary series about Japanese video game music, but the proof is embedded right here.

Heck, we're already at the second of six planned episodes of Diggin In The Carts, a series planned and promoted by Red Bull and covering the influence of Japanese game tunes on the game industry and beyond. And they're not just stopping at known names like Nobuo Uematsu, but also to folks even I had never heard of, true pioneers from the likes of Namco and Konami.

Give it a watch, if only for some sweet chiptune compositions. You might even come across a new name or two.
