Johto Legends: bringing orchestra to Gen 2!

With just under a week to go until the Virtual Console release of Pokémon Crystal, what better time to release a souped-up version of its soundtrack? Pokémon Johto Legends: bringing the harmony to your gameplay!

Pokémon Johto Legends is an officially-licensed project fully funded by the website Kickstarter, giving fans over an hour of orchestral renditions and performances of the Pokémon Gold, Pokémon Silver and Pokémon Crystal soundtracks. Be prepared to be amazed, as some of the industry’s leading talent have taken part in this, including performers from:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddess
  • Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions
  • Destiny
  • Minecraft
  • Tomb Raider
  • Dragon Age

Project organizer Braxton Burks commented on how Johto Legends “is a passion project I’ve wanted to fulfill since I was eleven years old“. This essentially echoes, I would say, sentiments of most of the players who have picked up Pokémon Gold, Pokémon Silver or Pokémon Crystal.

Pokémon Johto Legends is available in vinyl form, as well as digitally and also on a compact disc. The album can be found on Bandcamp, Spotify and iam8bit.
