Both Konami and Capcom have forced removal of tracks from Greatest Video Game Music II

An excellent new video game music album is fixing to hit market, that is, minus about 3 game music tracks. Recently Konami and Capcom have forced the removal of song tracks from the upcoming Greatest Video Game Music II. Among those 3 song titles include Castlevania, Metal Gear, and Street Fighter 2. A symphonic poem would have been done for Castlevania, Street Fighter getting a symphonic suite, while Metal Gear gets the Snake Eater song. The new album has reissued a new track lineup for itself now, minus those cool songs we all hoped would make it in.

The reason behind the removal?, Capcom and Konami had a rights refusal issue with the matter and the 3 tracks were asked to be taken out before its final release. You can see the new track listing below and what will now be included in the new album.

  • Assassin's Creed: Revelations - Main Theme
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Far Horizons
  • The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker - Dragon Roost Island
  • Final Fantasy VII - One-Winged Angel
  • Mass Effect 3 - A Future for the Krogan/An End Once And For All
  • Halo - Never Forget/Peril
  • Sonic the Hedgehog - A Symphonic Suite
  • Chrono Trigger - Main Theme
  • Luigi's Mansion - Main Theme
  • Kingdom Hearts - Fate of the Unknown
  • Super Metroid - A Symphonic Poem
  • Diablo III - Overture
  • Batman: Arkham City - Main Theme
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Icarus Main Theme
  • Fez - Adventure
  • Portal - Still Alive
  • Little Big Planet - Orb Of Dreamers (The Cosmic Imagisphere)

There isn't a whole lot of information as to why exactly Konami and Capcom wanted the tracks removed, but as more is known, I'll post about it here. The Greatest Video Game Music II album is still set for a scheduled release of November 6th, with no mention of change known as of right now.
