Just months after the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl sound library came online, Nintendo has announced that it will close (via Eurogamer).
The sound library contains music and sound effects from the 2006 Nintendo DS titles Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, and it became available in February. But an announcement post on its website said that the service will be shutting down tomorrow, May 31, at 9am UTC.
The Pokemon DP sound library was made available so people could "enjoy the nostalgic and iconic compositions". The 'Music Box' section has 149 tracks of music and sound effects from the games, and users can even create their playlists by selecting six of their favourite songs (yes, that's right, six). Meanwhile, the Playlists section contains selections curated and arranged by themes.
Heading to the site, an assortment of DP music will start playing, and as this piece is being typed I am jamming to 'Battle! (Wild Pokemon)' and 'Lake'. The sound quality is actually decent and the music, which many people have discovered, is a mixture of stimulating and relaxing, which some people are convinced helps to create a conducive work environment. We all know about those lo-fi hip-hop soundtracks on YouTube that are like study/work aids, right? Gaming soundtracks can also do the job.
