  • Bundle with both – Out on January 8th for everyone, sold £4.99.

Here’s details about the two packs:

The action-packed Aquaman movie packs offer players the chance to control DC’s legendary pair, Aquaman and Mera, in the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. It’s up to them to lead their people against Aquaman’s brother, Orm, who seeks to unite the seven kingdoms against the surface world. The packs expand the main game’s already large roster of over 150 iconic DC characters. The first pack adds new playable characters Aquaman (Gladiator), Black Manta (Movie), Mera, Orm (Gladiator), King Nereus and Queen Atlanna.

Yasunori Mitsuda

The latest translated interview from shmuplations is of Yasunori Mitsuda, one of the most famous video game composers from Japan (who recently worked on Xenoblade Chronicles 2). Click here to check it out!

Here’s an exceprt:

—The Super Famicom could only play a limited number of sounds back at once; did you find this a hindrance to your writing?

 

Mitsuda: On the contrary, the limited sounds available meant that you could focus more on melody, and I loved that. On hardware today, there are more ways than before for a song to be good or bad, and for the faults or strengths of the composer to emerge… in that sense, I think the Super Famicom really fit my strengths as a composer, and I feel pretty lucky that it was the first platform I worked on, you know?
