Perhaps a section dedicated to the soundtrack would be useful. It could contain information such as:

.The composer
.Information about the CD/digital release (if applicable)
.Differences between the Japanese and the international editions (if applicable)
.If it was subject to a replacement at some point
.Special collaborations (such as in the case of Budokai 2)
.Miscellaneous information (e.g. the fact that the first Budokai has a special Cha-la Head-cha-la instrumental as its ending theme)

It could also contain a subsection dedicated entirely to any theme songs the game might have, including the same kind of info as the main soundtrack section, just dedicated exclusively to the theme songs.

As an example...
Romanized: Sūpā Butōden Tsū
Translated: Super Martial Arts Legend 2
Fan: Super Butōden 2
I think writing "Sūpā" and "Tsū" is a bit redundant considering that they're already English words. So, Super Butōden 2 works just fine as it leaves the English in English and the Japanese in Japanese. And besides, they write the '2' as "2", so writing it as "Tsū" becomes extra silly. "Fan name" would be more like "Legends", or maybe even the "Butouden" spelling. Eh, probably not that last one...but I suppose it's worth at least having a redirect from, of course.
