Sound Test Saturday: Spooky Scary Mystic Mansion

Isn’t this that time of year where you put on a costume and threaten to prank strangers if they don’t give you candy? You know, New Year’s!

Boom jokes aside, the season of Halloween is indeed upon us, and for tonight’s Sound Test Saturday, we’re putting the remix spotlight on one of the more haunted locales of the entire Sonic series: Mystic Mansion from Sonic Heroes. Naofumi Hataya and Jun Senoue masterfully set the tone for the teams’ respective treks through the eerie manor, crawling with evil spirits and spooky scary skeletons around every corner.

A pair of Mystic Mansion tributes is available below – first one up being a lyrical take by Daniel Alvarez, which really captures the spirit of the original song!

Next up is a much more recent remix by MasterJace – this 90’s Electropop Mix of Mystic Mansion starts laying the beats on pretty heavy in the beginning before it really starts to pick up. Have a listen!
