A Satellaview research blog.

PRE-Satellaview Radio – St.GIGA Tide of Sound from 1992.

I’ve checked around for info on St.GIGA’s non-Satellaview material before and made a few entries on what I saw. This one goes deeper into the past, though. Way deeper.

August 1992, in fact. Nearly three years before the Satellaview was around, long before it was a blip on anyone’s mind, and Nintendo was still planning on it’s SNESCD. At this time, “Tide of Sound” was St.GIGA’s most popular program. Why, you ask? Well, I found an archiving, so maybe we can now find out.

How much is that Soundtrack in the window? The one with the Sound & Drama?

Since I’m running relatively low on actual news items, I’ll write this piece up.

You’ve probably seen my previous posts where I mentioned looking for audio albums with Satellaview music. After figuring I’ve gotten as many as I’m ever gonna get, I decided to look them up on Yahoo Japan Auctions and eBay


Here’s some of the results I got –

An Auction for “Super Famicom Game Music” on eBay. $100!

Super Mario World Original Soundtrack on eBay. $160.

Dragon Quest 1 Symphonic Suite on eBay. $39.99

Zelda Sound & Drama on YJA. 10,000 Yen.

Famicom Grafitti on YJA. 19,100 Yen.

Fuurai no Shiren Special Arrange Version on YJA. 68,000 Yen.

Super Mario World Soundtrack on YJA. 14,000 Yen.

Toy Music – Dancing Super Mario Brothers on YJA. 4,200 Yen BIN.

With these kind of prices, I’d be out of money fast trying to collect the actual albums! Blast, my goals…

Satellaview Radio – Bakusho Mondai on Tactics Ogre.

The newest NicoNicoDouga upload this time is another piece from one of the Satellaview’s radio programs.

Unfortunately, it is not dated, but the host is identified as “Bakusho Mondai“. It’s labeled as another “After School King” show, but it seems that rather than being sketch comedy or somesuch, we’ve got a whole program dedicated to a single game. That game is Tactics Ogre. If you’re not familiar with this game, here’s the Wikipedia article on it. I am not sure whether it’ll be brought up again.

Why Tactics Ogre? The Japanese version came out on the Super Famicom in Oct. 1995, and so I think this radio show was likely intended to rally some customers for it. I’m thinking it aired at some point around that timeframe.

Satellaview Soundtracks – Music Splice Hackory Custom.

I’ve done a lot of searching for Satellaview Soundlink music.
Unfortunately, in many cases, it was all to no avail whatsoever.
Eventually, I decided that instead of looking for soundtracks, to actually try to see what I can “restore” from my videos! The results are mixed, but some of them are fairly impressive! Others still require a lot of work to sound “Acceptable”, but I’m not giving up, obviously.

More BS Fire Emblem (BSFE Dai-2-wa)

I got caught up a bit of other work which will be my next post, but I didn’t want to forget about this. 🙂

Here’s Week 2 of BS Fire Emblem. Unfortunately no videos of 3 or 4 have been uploaded on NicoNicoDouga yet, much to my angst.
