Think back to Nintendo’s E3 Direct and you will remember the somewhat surprising announcement that Square Enix’s Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was going to the Switch. Unfortunately, it will only be available as a cloud version on Nintendo’s platform, but the release date is now imminent.
It will be released on all major platforms on October 26th (again only as a cloud version on Switch), and prior to its release, Square Enix has released an “almost” complete tracklist for the game’s soundtrack. As you would expect from a Guardians of the Galaxy game, it features a soundtrack full of 80s rock and pop songs:
- Blondie – call me
- Blue Oyster Cult – Don’t be afraid of the Reaper
- Bobby McFerrin – Don’t worry, be happy
- Hot Chocolate – Every 1 is a winner
- Wang Chung – Everyone is having fun tonight
- Tears of fear – everyone wants to rule the world
- Europe – the final countdown
- New Kids on the Block – Hangin ‘Tough
- Pat Benatar – Hit me with your best shot
- Bonnie Tyler – Perseverance for a Hero
- KISS – I love it loud
- Swarm of gulls – I Ran
- Culture Club – I’ll Tumble 4 Ya
- Mötley Crüe – Kickstart My Heart
- Simple Minds – love song
- Rick Astley – Will never give up on you
- Frankie goes to Hollywood – relax
- Def Leppard – Rock Rock till you drop
- Rainbow – since you left
- A-ha – take me on
- Soft Cell – tainted love
- Loverboy – Get rid of me
- Autograph – Turn up the radio
- Insanity! – Wake me up before you go
- Scandal with Patty Smyth – The Warrior
- Spaceship – We built this city
- Twisted Sister – We Won’t Take It
- Billy Idol – White Wedding
You will hear these tracks as the game progresses and you can also listen to them on the jukebox in Milano. With “Huddle”, an important combat mechanic, you can also choose between two songs on the Star-Lord cassette player to motivate your team and overwhelm your enemies.
Square Enix says all songs will be in-game, but with an optional toggle switch for those who want to mute them for streaming purposes.
