So randomly when logging in I noticed my menu music was being played in an 8-bit chiptune instead of the regular menu theme and I was quite surprised.

I noticed there's no thread about this yet so I decided to record a quick video and upload it.



Anyone else get this and do you guys think this is a hint that guild wars 2 is being turned 8-bit for april fools day?

You can actually download that song and the two others on this Reddit thread. Looks like we'll be getting some fabulous 8-bit AWESOME. There's actually a lot of stuff it looks like.

Btw, the music only plays if youre date and time settings are set on april 1st, just realized so people in usa and in other places need to set it to that date in order to hear it it seems.

Edit: Didn't see the reddit post about that, but regardless ill keep that info up here incase no1 bothers to check the reddit one XD

That's odd, my date is still 31st, although I did set the ingame clock to display server time which may be messing it up.

I actually like this more than the Orchestra Version! It feels more like a Game which I want to play nonstop!!
But... that means.. OMG, I became Old! Am I now one of those Retro Guys?! O_O

this is actually a lot cooler than the orchaestra version.

too bad a majority of GW2 players probably cant remember 8 bit games.

Probably the first time in months that I unmuted the game just to listen.

Damn it, I modified all my music. I'll need to undo it for a bit now because they might just make more music like that!

Cashing in on the nostalgia always works!

j/k
It's a nice April Fools special and if we get a cool jumping puzzle out of it I'm the last one to complain. An old-school "press start" login screen would have been perfect for this.
As far as 8-bit-music goes this is certainly no cave story, but it sounds nice enough.

Same here. Though I also just found out we went +1 hour again. Haha.
The music was a nice surprise.

I thought that, but it's only 31st March here in England and there's still some time to go until 1st April.

Brings back memories!     .... I remember having to blow the game cartridge in order to get it to work properly. Wish I would have saved my old game consoles! (get minds out of the gutter! lol)
