Treat Yourself to the Mighty Switch Force Soundtrack

Step into the maelstrom of aural delights that is MSF's music.

Aside from being out on the eShop at this very moment (and pretty good, from the sounds of it), WayForward's Mighty Switch Force also has quite the soundtrack, which—not to be outdone by bubbly, fast-paced nature of the game itself—is equatable to an orchestra-sized wall of grinning electronic fun.

The album, creation of composer and all-around swell guy Jake Kaufman (whom we interviewed a couple months ago), is available on Bandcamp, where players, fans, and connoisseurs of fine music can name their own price for the collection of twenty-three tracks. If it reaches #1 on Bandcamp (currently, it sits at #2), Kaufman will release the raw source tracks for people to remix to their content—so get on it! Here's a peak at what you can expect. For the full experience, buy the album HERE right now!

Caught Red Handed—After the blistering urgency of the title and intro, we're presented with this breezy, dubstep-laced track, which separates its time between throbbing bass and an echoey breakdown.

Launch Hearts—Fuel by a glimmering electronic backbeat, this track is driven up through several stratospheres of pop-y positivity at a breakneck speed.

Love You Love You Love—A mellower (if that's even possible) cut, propelled by vocal-esque verses and layers of intermingling ditties.

Jive Bot—Its bracingly heavy bass intro blossoms into a serious groove, riding the soaring melody and playing off the ever-present bottom end.

Whoa I'm In Space Cuba—This funky tango of a track is generously layered with dance-inciting piano, drums, and hand clapping.

Apprehend Them!—Don't let the early, serious strains deceive you—it quickly drops into a racing theme of whimsical escape.

Yummy—Another bass heavyweight, this track is as the title suggests, and evolves into an climbing, empowering riff before driving it deep into some speaker-shaking wubs and dubs.

Break Up Take Down—Sweeping and melodically wistful, it's accented with full-bodied crashes and toweringly intricate.

Final Level—Expansive and chasmic, this track echoes with malevolently enjoyable strains.

Final Boss—A relentless assault from the low frequencies is punctuated here by orchestral-style whines and shouts.

Tally Screen—A paired down retrospective piece, it's a spacious respite after the preceding aural siege.
