Released this past Tuesday, EA Sports’ popular soccer video game “ FIFA 15 ” once again features multiple Nacional artists in the new game; including Sante Les Amis “Brasil” and Polock’s “Everlasting.” A total of 28 Nacional Records songs have been featured on the iconic video game series over the years.
FIFA’s ‘World Cup’ edition released earlier this year also featured Ritmo Machine “Brazil,” DJ Bitman “Black Bossa” and Los Macuanos “Las Memorias del Faro.”
This continues a long history of Nacional artists in FIFA video games, which has happened every year since the label’s founding in 2005, including tracks from Los Amigos Invisibles, Nortec Collective, Bitman & Roban, Plastilina Mosh, The Pinker Tones, Aterciopelados, Pacha Massive, Mexican Institute of Sound, Latin Bitman, Fidel Nadal, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Ana Tijoux, Bomba Estereo, ChocQuibTown, Dapuntobeat, DJ Raff, La Vida Boheme and Astro.
The FIFA series has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling sports video game franchise in the world, and one of the best-selling video games of all-time.
Nacional Records has recently landed major synchs in various major video games, TV shows, movies and advertising campaigns, with prominent placements for multiple artists across a variety of genres. Thanks to its sister music publishing company Canciones Nacionales, Nacional Records is widely recognized by music supervisors and licensors as a leading “one stop shop” for Latin music licensing.
Among the recent high profile licenses have been commercials for Target, Walmart, Heineken, Yoplait, Dodge, McDonald’s and others.
