Sonic R music referenced in Sonic Unleashed OST


Recommended Posts

Not really sure if it's worth a separate topic, but.. damn this one made my day.

Did you knew about, kind of a subtle, Sonic R music reference in Sonic Unleashed OST? Those two games are separated by 11 years!

It's a coincidence. Same with the similarities between Savannah Citadel Day and the Sonic 1 8bit ending theme.

Yeah it's a pretty common sample that's often very related to jungle/ruins setting music in soundtracks.  Like I would have no idea what to "call" it but I'm sure it could be found on the internet as a standalone sample.  Generally speaking when a Sonic game makes a musical reference they make sure it's very obvious.
