Time for the second crossover, this time we have Touhou x Metroid. I tried to make a Metroid Prime-looking Touhoid Prime logo for that occasion, which features the eye of Yatagarasu instead of Samus’ screw attack logo:
Sadly there exists no real game of this crossover (…yet), so you’ll have to imagine it! I don’t think Okuu would be that overpowered compared to Samus and her Power Suit, there’s a lot of powerful technology in it after all. I actually believe that Okuu can’t really keep up physically with Samus Aran, but her Nuclear Power Suit surely has lots of features that would make up for it. Zero Suit Okuu however…that might be a disaster~
But now to the song itself: Former Hell of Blazing Fires! I don’t know the details, but that’s where Okuu spends most of her time, at least in Touhou 11. So, while it should include hot and serious tunes, it also needed to have something more friendly like saying…you’re at home. It might be the starting point of the adventure, with a secure save point and an energy/missile station. But maybe I just liked how it sounded that way…some transitions turned out to be quite odd though, but I think you can get used to it. Just listen to it a lot~
So the song features Magmoor Caverns from Metroid Prime, although one could argue it’s actually Lower Norfair from Super Metroid. Ech! We also have Brinstar Overgrown with Vegetation Area (or however that awesome tune is actually called) from Super Metroid and naturally Okuu’s theme, Nuclear Fusion, from Touhou 11: Subterranean Animism. Oh, there’s also some Ridley thrown in at one point, you can’t miss it. As some of you might know (I even told you some weeks before, but who reads this anyway~), I made a Super Touhoid song a good while ago, featuring Lower Norfair and Nuclear Fusion. This was actually the starting point for the new song, as I simply wanted to remake it. In the end it turned out to be completely different though; only one or two parts reference Lower Gensokyo now.
As usual you’ll find the song, the download and the video below. Want to show your appreciation? Donate!Former Hell of Blazing Fires (9295 downloads)
And here’s the video:
Did you notice the Metroids in that video look like Suwako’s hat? Next in our “Crossover Month” is Touhouvania, Touhou x Castlevania which, as suggested by a fan, will feature Bloody Tears and Rumia’s theme. However, once again we’ll have another OST focus next week, featuring Nonexistence Battle 2. I have a feeling you’ll really like this one!
