Without a doubt, the music of Konami's NES catalog has a stellar reputation--if their stable of composers had only crafted the 8-bit Castlevania soundtracks, they'd still go down in history as some of the greatest video game maestros of all time. But did you know Konami applied the same amount of musical genius to all of their 8-bit games, regardless of their disposability? On this week's Retronauts Micro, take a listen some some of Konami's 8-bit tunes you might have overlooked--unless you're a roller derby enthusiast, I guess.
