At last, while we’re still in a Metroid mood: here’s the promised Soulless Enemies remake!
Soulless Enemies was a Metroid Medley I made back in 2011, which featured mainly Boss Themes. However, I was able to sneak in some of my favorite non-battle tunes as well: the Echoes Main Theme and Lower Norfair.
This time, I COULD even think of an excuse to include them: the Echoes Main Theme represents the Ing and part of that tune plays during the second phase of the Emperor Ing Boss Fight, while in Metroid: Samus Returns, Lower Norfair plays in all hot places, even replacing the Metroid Boss Theme if the battle takes place in such an area.
Anyway, what’s new? The sound is more, uh, developed? It’s definitely up to par now. More importantly: it now features the Noxus Battle Theme and the epic Rundas Battle Theme – now if that doesn’t make it much better, then I don’t know what will! Here’s the song list in order:
Vs. Ridley [Super Metroid]
Samus Appears [Metroid]
Rundas Battle [Metroid Prime 3: Corruption]
Vs. Hive Totem [Metroid Prime]
Omega Ridley [Metroid Prime 3: Corruption]
Vs. Emperor Ing B [Metroid Prime 2: Echoes]
Echoes Main Theme [Metroid Prime 2: Echoes]
Gandrayda Battle [Metroid Prime 3: Corruption]
Vs. Sylux [Metroid Prime: Hunters]
Kraid’s Lair [Metroid]
Rundas Battle (again)
Vs. Noxus [Metroid Prime: Hunters]
Lower Norfair [Super Metroid]
Get Item Jingle/Item Acquisition Fanfare [Metroid]
And here’s the video. Since I experienced some technical difficulties during rendering I wasn’t able to add the Joe icon with the moving bars, instead you get pictures of the enemies fought – and in non-Boss themes cool Zero Suit Samus pictures. You have no idea how many pics I had to click through to find pics where she didn’t look TOO sexy:
And that’s enough Metroid for now. Go and play Samus Returns if you haven’t already – in my opinion that game turned out absolutely amazing~
I’m thinking of doing either a Zelda or Fire Emblem song next, but we’ll see about that. You’ve noticed how reliable these announcements can be…
Usually I’m no good with timing, but I THINK this one came out just right. The Metroid II Remake for the Nintendo 3DS is coming out this Friday, so we celebrate with the Metroid medley A Hunter’s Journey~
It’s STILL not the Soulless Enemies remake I promised, but instead a new song (that remake will come eventually though). It features mainly my favorite area tunes plus the main overworld theme from Metroid II: Return of Samus, Surface of SR388. The other themes are: Brinstar Vegetation Area, Lower Norfair (both Super Metroid), Tallon IV Overworld 2 (Metroid Prime) and a bit of the Echoes Main Theme (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, you know I love that tune~).
So, how much longer until the Halloween special? …uh, it’s still September…well, time to think of something then! I heard it was Hatsune Miku’s birthday a few days ago, maybe…idk. Or maybe the Soulless Enemies remake while everyone is still in a Metroid mood? Difficult decisions!
Still no Metroid! What is this insanity! Here’s some backstory:
I finally finished all of my Wii U games and was able to get my Switch ready (maybe you’ve read about that in the last few lines on the last upload?). Since then I’ve been absorbed in playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild lately and dang, there’s so much to see! The only thing that left me a little disappointed so far was the absence of any memorable tunes, aside from some familiar re-appearances like Epona’s Song. I guess the background music is supposed to not distract you from your adventure…but that kinda worked for Wind Waker, that game had lots of memorable songs. But I haven’t nearly seen everything, so I’ll not give up hope just yet!
Anyway, enough Zelda. Now that you know the background, this song is something I threw together rather quickly, although I had the idea itself a good while ago. The Darkness part of Ultimate Elemental Being featured Miracle Matter and 0², and I wanted to see if I could turn that into its own song. Turns out I can – it was actually quite a lot of fun working on this and we haven’t had a Disciple-like song in ages anyway, so I hope you like the result too!
The mix itself is rather uncertain what it is. It’s kind of dark, epic and upbeat at the same time. It works for me – but what about you?
