The grand finale of our “Crossover Month” is the 4th installment of our Reimu & Sanae crossover series (Mario & Luigi x Touhou). For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, this video contains everything you have to know:
The song of the 4th installment Reimu & Sanae: Fantasy Team features Remilia’s theme, Septette for the Dead Princess, from Touhou 6: The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil and the Final Antasma Battle from Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. We call the result Septette for a Nightmare! The intro is inspired by Castlevania 64‘s Main Theme, though~
As usual you’ll find the song, the download and the video below. Once again, VanishingSVST made a sprite picture for the song, but this time we even get a picture of Remilia as Antasma(lower left)! Want to show your appreciation? Donate!
That’s it for “Crossover Month“. But every second song of mine is more or less a crossover anyway…The Touhou voting is done as well, the winner is as expected Kanako’s theme. Let’s see what I can make with that. BUT next up is this year’s Halloween mix! Yes, it’s that time again. And you get EVEN more Touhou, since I chose Kagerou’s theme (Touhou 14) as the main source for this mix (although there might be more Werewolf-related stuff~). I have something else planned for Halloween, but I’m not sure if I can really make that, so I don’t want to give you hopes for nothing.
So much Touhou stuff…there are other franchises I’d like to tackle, but for now this is the most interesting one. Next week we’ll have another OST focus featuring the Encounter, Battle and Danger themes of my avatar Joe Ximer!
Today on OST focus we switch to another series: The Masters of Pokémon, another animated series created by VanishingSVST. This time we look at the Encounter and the Battle theme of a mysterious character who calls himself Lane.
Usually the important trainers of this series will have an Encounter theme, a Battle theme (both made with primarily Pokémon B2/W2 instruments) and a Danger theme for their last Pokémon (basically a remix of the Battle theme). This one is a bit different though. He only uses one Pokémon to test Kayla, the series’ main protagonist. So there was no need for a Danger theme. However, due to the importance of the character, his themes are not made with Pokémon B2/W2 instruments.
The video features the Pokémon battle from episode 2 along with some artwork. Maybe you’ll even notice a subtle change in the artwork during the video:
I tried to make the song sound very epic and for that purpose included Oath to Order from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and Brahman from Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2. It certainly stands out. As usual, if you like it, I’d advise you to check out the OST page for more. Although that would be spoilers for future OST Focus posts~
Next time on OST focus, I’ll show you one of my favorites so far, Battle! Joe Ximer. That’s right. Looks like my avatar has made it into this series…and as a comical character no less! I hope to be able to finish the final crossover until next Sunday, although time’s a bit short, because…you know, Smash Bros. and such~
At last! The third of the 4 Touhou crossovers is a mix of Castlevania and Touhou, so we call it Touhouvania! Took quite a while, but now I’m done with my thesis for the most part, so I was finally able to finish this song. I hope I haven’t got rusty in the meantime…
Actually that idea isn’t new, as long-time followers already know since U.N. Owen was a Wicked Child. There exists a really good fan game called Koumajou Densetsu: Scarlet Symphony. It was so well-received, that it actually even got a sequel called Koumajou Densetsu II: Stranger’s Requiem. The first one features Reimu “Belmont” Hakurei as the protagonist with her Hakurei whip thing and Marisa as an exist, while the second one (as far as I know) features Sakuya as the protagonist. Certainly Alucard-like in terms of style and even makes sense with all her rumored Vampire Hunter back story.
But now to the song itself: Bloody Fears! Born from a fan suggestion, this song includes Rumia’s themes and Bloody Tears, as well as two other famous Castlevania tunes (Beginning and Vampire Killer). The song might be a whole mess, but I kinda like it. Probably because I just like Vampire Killer and Rumia’s themes? I suppose…
