Konami released some lofi remixes to relax / study for

To celebrate the anniversary of high high low low left right left right BA, Konami has produced lofi hip hop to relax, study and / or relax.
The songs are remixes by ‘DJ No.2’ of tracks from the NES games Gradius, Ganbare Goemon! Karakuri DÅchÅ«, Yie Ar Kung-Fu, TwinBee and Salamander. They were released on YouTube along with the now traditional animated video:
There are more tracks available on the Spotify playlist version, including others by DJ Tokyo Machine.
If you’re not familiar, lo-fi (for chilling out) beats have become increasingly popular in recent years on YouTube, where they are often featured in endless livestreams and highly recommended by the algorithm. A few years ago, there were a few modestly popular streams pulling music from Soundcloud and pairing it with looping animations from Ghibli movies, but currently the most popular stream on YouTube has 32,000 people are watching. The animations are now original, there are licensed musical releases, there is official merch; it’s a whole.
Konami is celebrating the anniversary in other ways, including console re-releases of some of their classic games and new merchandise.
