In a press release, Colin Palmer, Vice President of Marketing at The Pokemon Company International, commented on these albums:
“The Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue video games introduced Pokémon to the world 25 years ago and we wanted to recognize this important part of the franchise during our 25th anniversary celebrations as part of the P25 Music campaign. Pokémon fans will appreciate the nod to the first Pokémon video games with these EPs, while music fans will enjoy new songs and remixes from exciting artists on these double collections.”
