Satoru Iwata Musical Tribute Prescription for Peace: A Tribute to the Departed
In honor of the late Satoru Iwata and Eiki Oshimi.
11.12.15 - 11:16 PM

Norihiko Hibino (Metal Gear Solid series) and pianist AYAKI come together once again to honor the passing of Satoru Iwata and Eiki Oshimi through the release of a beautiful 2-track album Prescription for Peace: A Tribute to the Departed through Scarlet Moon Records.  

It's with great sadness and respect for the recently departed that Scarlet Moon Records makes available a soulful musical tribute to late Nintendo President and CEO Satoru Iwata and renowned musician from the Niigata region of Japan Eiki Oshimi. Prescription for Peace: A Tribute to the Departed features GENTLE LOVE, the musical duo comprised of Metal Gear Solid series composer Norihiko Hibino and pianist AYAKI, and covers the Onett theme from EarthBound--also known as Mother 2 in Japan--a title that Mr. Iwata had a significant role in developing. The second track, "Sincerely Yours," pays tribute to Mr. Oshimi, a musical mentor to the Hibino family who passed within a few days of Mr. Iwata.

The release announcement went on to say:

The passing of Nintendo President and CEO Satoru Iwata had a profound effect on me," comments Scarlet Moon Records producer Jayson Napolitano. "He wasn't simply some suit running a company, but was truly passionate about videogames, and knowing he was putting on a smile for all of us around the globe while he was most certainly suffering broke my heart. When I reached out to Hibino-san to discuss a possible tribute, I was again heartbroken to hear that his family was mourning the loss of their musical mentor, Eiki Oshimi, who was also taken too early due to cancer. We thought it would be fitting to pay tribute to the two the best way Hibino-san knows how. We hope you can remember all of those who've left us with this beautiful musical tribute.

Prescription for Peace: A Tribute to the Departed is available through Loudr for $1. After licensing fees, additional revenue will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
