Music is one of the many ingredients when it comes to crafting a video game. It can flourish outside of its confines in a variety of forms — disk, cartridge, and download code. Anyone who has ever hit that start button in a game more than likely has at least one favorite track.

Last summer, Jawmuncher on ResEtera noticed that Capcom had removed soundtracks from the Resident Evil series on music streaming platform Spotify. Upon further inspection, it was soon realized that more than just one franchise was affected, as nearly all their licensed music was pulled. This mainly affected US accounts, and users who had playlists containing any piece held pockets of gray-out silence.

That changed today. Sounding the cry on Twitter was @_watsu who provided a scrolling screen capture of what magically reappeared under Capcom Sound Team’s page — Mega Man, Street Fighter, Monster Hunter, Devil May Cry, Ōkami, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Breath of Fire, and more. Granted, Resident Evil hasn’t come back from the licensing purgatory, but now there’s a whole slew of video game music to chill to, work out to, study to, and so much more.
