#Remix Roulette

REMIX: Rockman & Forte - Tengu Man (Aerial Realm)

The only Robot Master from the classic Mega Man series to have a total of three official stage themes, Tengu Man, gets another great theme under his Wily belt with this remix. Although he dominated multi-consoles, many consider his 1998 theme on the Super Famicom’s “Rockman & Forte” to be the fan favorite.

REMIX: Castlevania: Bloodlines - Iron Blue Intention

The infamous theme Iron Blue Intention first appeared in Castlevania: Bloodlines. It is the theme of the fourth level of the game, the German Iron and Steel Factory. This song was based on Dmitri Shostakovich’s symphony no. 5. It’s most recent remix appeared during “13th Street” in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin for the Nintendo DS.

REMIX: Devil May Cry 3 - Devils Never Cry

This is what the theme from Devil May Cry 3 would sound like if it was either on a Nintendo Game Boy or playing at dance club somewhere in the 8-bit universe!

REMIX: The Dark Knight Movie Theme – Molossus

This is what the Batman Begins/Dark Knight movie theme would sound like if it was either on a Nintendo Game Boy or playing at dance club somewhere in the 8-bit universe!

REMIX: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - Opening

Ever wonder what the opening theme from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword would have sounded like if its music came from an original Nintendo Entertainment System cartridge?

REMIX: Daytona USA 2001 - Sky High (Mirror)

I feel this Dreamcast mirror remix of the classic Sega Saturn version of “Sky High” truly enhances the essence of the original. The repetition and jazzy piano gives it a nice, unique and catchy twist. This is actually a remix to the Dreamcast remix!!

REMIX: Punch-Out!! (Wii) – Full theme

This special version of the theme was created for the Wii version of Punch-Out!! Composers Mike Peacock, Darren Radtke, & Chad York gave each character their own arrangement of all the music from the game. Glass Joe’s full theme however is the happiest and most cheerful of them all. It’s almost as if this is the type of music you would hear in Super Mario Sunshine… you remember Delfino Plaza right?

REMIX: Super Mario Kart  - Credits

This rock arrangement gives you a taste of what Super Mario Kart might be like if it was given a guitar driven makeover. Even in its rock form the song is incredibly catchy! However, an edger soundtrack is unfortunately not enough to save you from the dreaded Blue Shell attack!

REMIX: Pilotwings – Light Plane

Composer Drew Wheeler (halc) managed to successfully create a modern take (sprinkled with a hint of chiptunes) of this beautiful jazzy classic from the SNES days. Even the song’s producer recommends that you just “Kick back, grab an in-flight drink, and enjoy!”

REMIX: Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest - Bloody Tears

It’s just amazing to see a song like “Bloody Tears” get reinvented in so many ways over the years. Just when you think you have heard every possible version that could come from it something like this happens. This absolutely beautiful rendition on piano captures perhaps a more lonesome side to Simon’s most infamous quest.
