Back in July we reported on the Mega Man 4 medley created by Sonic Sound Director Jun Senoue that features in the Smash Bros. Ultimate soundtrack.
In a recent column on Sonic Channel, Senoue-san talks about how this unlikely collaboration came about…
According to the interview, Senoue-san was surprised when he met with the Smash Bros. Ultimate Team and was offered virtual free rein on choice of track he was allowed to re-arrange for the title.
“The first thing that popped into my mind – I’ve always relied on my instincts – and then said to them, I remember, was basically: ‘I want to try doing a Mega Man track.'”
The inspiration? Archie’s “World’s Collide” comic series, which saw an intersection of the two character’s universes.
The track stands along side 20 Sonic-themed songs that are included in the game, including the rearrangement of the Angel Island Zone theme which was originally created for Super Smash Bros. Brawl back in 2007.
