VGAR3 Bonus 2 – Faces of Evil

As it is tradition with VG Arch Rivals albums, there is a bonus track that can only be found on the album itself (and not downloaded in any other way).

The second and “full” bonus track of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3 is Faces of Evil. Since some of you asked for Link vs Ganon I thought I should include that as well. …what do you mean, that’s not what you meant?

Faces of Evil features the songs Glutko Face (Link: The Faces of Evil), Sakado – Gibdo’s Cathedral (Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon), Goronu Face (Link: The Faces of Evil) and Reesong Palace – Goria’s Welcome (Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon), the biggest focus being on Glutko Face. While the games are infamous for their cut scenes and particularly terrible game play, I actually find the music pretty catchy. It certainly doesn’t have any kind if Zelda feel to it, that’s for sure.

Planned release for VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3 is (still) next Sunday, October, 23rd. Better mark that date in your calendar~

So here we go (as noted above, no download, sorry~):




And that’s it. Imma prepare the songs for the album now and I will hopefully be done by next Sunday so that the album can be released in time. See ya then!

VGAR3 Bonus 1 – Porky’s Solo

As it is tradition with VG Arch Rivals albums, there is a bonus track that can only be found on the album itself (and not downloaded in any other way).

As the title suggests, the third installment will have multiple bonus tracks…although not quite. There will be instrumental versions for those people who strictly don’t want anyone to talk during their musics because they think it’s annoying and/or distracting. This really only affects about 3 sound effects in two songs, so not that much of a deal.

A much bigger deal is Porky’s Solo. It’s an altered version of Ness vs Porky that only features Porky’s tunes. So it starts off the same way, but where you expect Eight Melodies to play, it skips right to Piggy Guys and extends that part a bit before it returns to Natural Killer Cyborg. Thus it retains the darker Porky feel throughout the whole song.

I also added some drums so the whole thing sounds more GROOOOOOVY (get it~). The additional ‘groove’ affects Ness vs Porky as well, which you’ll find on the album when it’s finished. Planned release for VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3 is October, 23rd. Better mark that date in your calendar~

So let’s hear it (as noted above, no download, sorry~):


Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand here’s the video, it also features the album art for the upcoming release:


So, are the other bonus tracks gonna be the instrumental versions? No~

Next up is the true bonus song of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3. It’s something that some of you have been asking for…but it’s probably not what you meant~

Star Fox vs Star Wolf

Prepare yourself for the last (regular) entry of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 3!

And we’re ending this one with a very nice rivalry: Star Fox vs Star Wolf! For this mix I decided to go with Corneria (Star Fox), obviously the Star Wolf Theme (Star Fox 64) and the Star Fox Theme (Star Fox 64). I think that’s the most fitting songs, lots of electronic sounds for Fox McCloud and epic trumpets for Wolf O’Donnell.

I’ve been thinking about including Corneria from Star Fox Zero as well, since that’s a really epic tune, but it would have been pretty difficult to fit that into the mix, so…at least I thought about it~

And here’s the video:


Sorry to those who expected another Ace Attorney or something like that…but I’m certain this wasn’t the last “Arch rival month“. There’s still so many song ideas left, I’d love to do another one next year!

Next up are the extra songs which you can only get by downloading the full album. And I’ve prepared something special for that…

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!
