Cowboy Bebop: Tsuioku no Serenade (カウボーイビバップ 追憶の夜曲(せれなーで)?, Kaubōi Bibappu: Tsuioku no Serenāde, lit. "Cowboy Bebop: Serenade of Reminiscence") is a PlayStation 2 action/beat 'em up video game from Bandai, released exclusively in Japan on August 25, 2005. It has an original story based on the anime series Cowboy Bebop.

Story[edit]

The game follows an original story set in the Cowboy Bebop world. Events center around a search for a space pirate's treasure, a mysterious song called Diamonds and a mysterious organization that stands in the way of the Bebop's crew.

Gameplay[edit]

Playable characters include Spike, Faye and Jet, each of whom are voiced by their respective voice actors of the anime series, while Ed provides objectives, advice and moral support, and Ein appears alongside Ed. Action occurs on foot with both hand-to-hand and shooting segments, often with small puzzles to solve, as well as items to search for (either essential to the plot or as bonus items to appear in the gallery). Certain sections of the game require piloting spacecraft and at one point a boat. Gameplay is punctuated by long cutscenes that develop the story. There is also a blackjack mini-game featuring Spike and Jet as rotating dealers; this provides a way to earn additional money to unlock bonuses such as songs for the music player and character profiles.

Music[edit]

The soundtrack is composed of music by Yoko Kanno, famous for her music in the series. Three new songs, performed by Italian vocalist Ilaria Graziano, were composed for the game and were released on the Tank! THE! BEST! album.
