A few months ago, I “fixed” Disciple of Time by adding Primal Dialga to it. Now, there was at least one person (you know who you are) who felt it was a bit odd that it would still also feature so prominently in Disciple of the Light. And since I agree with that, it was time to fix another Disciple song: here’s the True Disciple of Light!
So after some trial and error – I tried some songs which worked as a replacement and realized only afterwards that they actually have a different element in mind – I ended up replacing Primal Dialga with You Are My Hope (Bravely Default) and Wonderful Heaven (Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody). Those are light-based in my book.
This increases the amount of themes in the song even more, although Disciple of the Light was already unrivaled in its sheer amount of tunes included. Now Marisa is the only one included in multiple Disciple tunes (Light and Magic). I decided not to change that.
Once again I used the opportunity to make some minor adjustments as well. You’ll likely notice the changes in the Divine Identity part right away, but I also added a little more oomph to the Champion Diantha part and the ending:
I also changed the color for light, so it could stand as its own and not a darkness replica, although the similarity was originally intended. I also removed the “the”, since I felt it was unnecessary.
I got a few ideas in my head for the next songs, but I probably won’t have much time to work on something until the next scheduled upload date, so I might work on another remake before we start something completely new again.
Are you ready for the finale? I present to you: the final and true bonus song of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 4, Funky Kicks!
The song features the truly fabulous duo Miror B. (Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness) and Mettaton Ex (Undertale) with their respective themes. The focus is a bit more on Miror B. with Mettaton joining in every now and then. It would certainly have been possible to give both of them the same amount of spotlight, but that’s just how it turned out~
This time I didn’t forget about the intro:
Long-time fans will probably find many parts of the song familiar…
And that was the last bonus song. Time to finalize the album so VG Arch Rivals Vol. 4 can finally be released next Sunday! *excitement*
As announced last time, there’s more bonus track coming this way. Remember how I said 2-3 derivatives? Because I was unsure if I should make this one. Well, now I did – so here’s Gerudo Swag!
This is an alternative version of Link vs Ganon where I didn’t have to worry about giving both of them enough spotlight and didn’t feel obliged to use Ganon’s Theme. Instead, have more Gerudo Valley. However, this is NOT a “Ganon’s Solo”, as Zelda’s Lullaby and Tal Tal Heights still kick in at the last part of the song.
I came up with the song name in about 5 seconds – so if the name accurately describes the song or not, is certainly up for debate:
Can’t have a song without a video to go along with it, right? I just noticed that I actually forgot to add the intro the other bonus songs have…
Now excuse me, while I try to figure out how to work on the next derivative song and play Dark Souls Remastered at the same time.
