#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: 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: 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.

REMIX: Final Fantasy VII - Fanfare

Something that has been on many gamers’ wish-list for years now is the desire for a true remake to 1997’s Final Fantasy VII. If that dream ever comes true I already know who I want doing the arranged soundtrack. The multi-genre fusioning style of Joshua Morse is truly unmatched.
