Metal Gear Solid Composer Pays Tribute To Satoru Iwata With Charity Song



Metal Gear Solid series composer Norihiko Hibino and pianist AYAKI (who perform together as GENTLE LOVE) have paid tribute to Satoru Iwata with a new cover track.


The two musicians covered the Onett theme from EarthBound in tribute to Iwata as he had a significant role in developing the game.


There’s also a second track that comes along with it called “Sincerely Yours” that pays tribute to Eiki Oshimi, who was a musical mentor to the Hibino family, and who passed within a few days of Iwata.


The two tracks are being sold together under the title Prescription for Peace: A Tribute to the Departed over on Loudr. You can purchase them for a minimum of a dollar, which covers the licensing costs to Nintendo, but any more you pay will go to the American Cancer Society.
