Ness vs Porky

It’s time for the fourth entry of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3!

And we’re giving the Mother series some well-deserved and long overdue love with Ness vs Porky/Pokey. The mix includes Piggy Guys (Mother 3), Pokey Means Business (EarthBound) and Natural Killer Cyborg (Mother 3) to represent Porky’s side, on the other hand we have Eight Melodies (EarthBound) and Pollyanna (Mother).

There’s a lot of great animations with amazing tunes about the Mother series, especially EarthBound, with tons of love put into it. For example, check out Porky, Pokey and Tears and POLLYANNA: An Animated Earthbound Tribute. Compared to these gems, this is just a little medley. Not even trying to compete here.

Still, this is actually my first remix featuring only songs from the Mother series (we had Electrocuted a good while ago, which was a Natural Killer Cyborg remix mixed with some surprisingly fitting Wily Stage music)*. I remember about 6-7 years ago, I tried to remix Pokey Means Business, but kinda failed. And now, we get this. I’d say it’s at least quite the medley, featuring so many notable songs, no? I gotta say: I’m satisfied. So let’s get down to business:

*…thanks to forger343 for reminding me…I actually kinda forgot about that song XD

There really isn’t much to see in the video. But I share it anyway:

 

And that’s that. What was next…um…lemme check my notes…I think it was something coo-OH, that’s gonna be quite something. I wonder if I’ll be able to do it justice, though, I never really made a Corn- ah, now I almost spoiled it ;3

Kaguya vs Mokou

Let’s get it on with the third entry of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3!

And the series finally gets some Touhou goodness with Kaguya vs Mokou. Obviously the themes featured are Kaguya’s Theme Lunatic Princess and Mokou’s Theme Reach for the Moon, Immortal Smoke (both from Touhou 8: Imperishable Night).

And that’s just it, the two immortals fighting it out. I wonder why? Is this even canon? I don’t know, but their themes are really cool. I almost forgot how much fun one can have with pianos!

There might not be that much in the video this time, but…you just gotta see that cute Kaguya:

 

I’m sure you’re wondering what’s next, right? Well, it’s gonna be from a series I haven’t made a single remix of yet. And it’s actually a well-known series since Smash and such…

X vs Zero

The second entry of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3 is here, get ready for some Mega Man action!

X vs Zero is one of the more synth-rocky entries of this ‘month’. I admit that’s not really my forte, but if I changed the original tunes to my usual style they would have lost their charm (and energy). Also switching it up a little helps keeping things fresh…right?

It’s pretty convenient that there exists a fitting theme for their match-up already, and what do you know, it’s called X vs Zero (Mega Man X5). I tried to make this the heart of this song, knowing that I already failed countless times in the past trying to remix this tune. The other themes tell a little story:

After their battle began, the major villain of the X series makes an appearance in the form of Sigma, musically represented by Zero Virus Stage 2 (Mega Man X5). This is one of the stage tunes that lead to the battle between X and Zero. What comes after that is a little flash back: Vile appears (represented by Vile’s Theme from Mega Man X8, ’cause that one rocks), the guy who showed X his place in Mega Man X’s intro stage. Who saved him back then? That’s right, Zero. So Vile is defeated and the fanfare plays the intro of Zero’s Theme (Mega Man X3, PlayStation version), before they can finally go back to see who the stronger fighter is.

This entry is also kind of a continuation of Mega Man vs Dr. Wily which we had in the last installment, since Zero was created by Dr. Wily and X is…well, Mega Man, basically. Although I have to admit, their relationship is QUITE different.

So yeah, cool story bro and such, but now we’ll see if this is really as cool as it sounds. Now don’t get your hopes up too high, ’cause it’s probably not. But I still hope you can enjoy it by keeping in mind the little story behind it.

The video kind of visualizes what I was talking about, so you might want to check that out as well:

 

Next up we finally have the first Touhou rivalry. Truly an immortal rivalry. (get the hint?)

Pit vs Dark Pit

At last: VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3 is here!

We start everything off with Pit vs Dark Pit. I know some of you requested something like that!

Obviously the song features some Dark Pit, specifically the Dark Pit Flight Theme (Kid Icarus: Uprising) as well as the Title Theme from Kid Icarus and Underworld from the same game to let Pit shine a bit.

I tried to focus on these tunes and match them together in a more or less creative way. It was a little more difficult than expected since Dark Pit’s tune is much slower than the other tunes. And quite different in general…but it’s cool!

So next up is some Mega Man action with…lots of rivals actually!

VG Arch Rival Vol. 3 Announcement

You read it!

And I actually wanted to already post the first song today, but it turned out to be even more difficult than expected. I do have a few minutes down already, but I’m not quite satisfied with it. Might need some re-writing and such…

…what am I talking about you ask? Well, this:

The first song of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3 (Archrival Month 3) is Pit vs Dark Pit. It’s gonna have some Kid Icarus Title Theme, probably Underworld (I’m working on that part) and of course Dark Pit’s Theme.

So I hope you’re a bit excited! If you want to know what else awaits you this time, keep reading. Otherwise…

Cave of Raves

A rave inside a cave? What is this sorcery!?

Caves are basically asking for an exploration. So for this mix I I included the soothing Underground Theme from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island as well as Brinstar Overgrown with Vegetation Area from Super Metroid. Now get in the rave inside the cave~

…I’ll be quiet now..

Have enough of raves? What about rivals? It’s about time we start with VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3! Not sure if I make an announcement video first or start right away…we’ll see! But expect it soon~

Clad In Shadow – Shadow Dial

It’s time for the third song of Clad in Shadow!

In this project, tunes get a ‘Shadow‘ version by mixing them with a Persona Battle Theme. They will usually have a darker feeling to them as well. Exceptions prove the rule though.

Now we go back with another Touhou song and ‘shadowize’ Sakuya’s Theme Lunar Clock ~ Luna Dial from The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. Again you might recall Shadow Dial which I originally made for the Super Mario: Vanishing Existence series, but…this sounds nothing like it. So this is the freshest Shadow song so far if you want to put it that way. Shadow Dial actually features the battle themes of BOTH Persona 2 games (Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment). The other songs so far only featured the Innocent Sin battle tune.

And that’s that! This was actually not on the schedule…so who knows what happens next~
