Namco Bandai Launches Namco Sounds On iTunesS

The music of Pac-Man, SoulCalibur, and Xevious are now waiting to be nestled gently within your iPod, courtesy of Namco Bandai's newly-launched iTunes music label, Namco Sounds.

Namco Bandai will be using the Namco Sounds label to release exclusive re-mastered tracks from its extensive stable of classic games. To inaugurate the launch of the label, songs from Pac-Man, Xevious, and SoulCalibur Suite: The Resonance of Souls and Swords are now available for purchase, with the latter being a special exclusive release in honor of the launch of SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny on the PSP. Additional tracks under the new label will be showing up on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month.

It's always good to see more video game music showing up on iTunes, though I'd have to say that I've never sat back and thought to myself, "Gee, I wish I had Xevious music on my iPod." Should be interesting to see what other rarities the company makes available as the label progresses.
