Mash-Up Monday: Aquarium Park Dragon Dance

Sonic set aside his hydrophobia when countless Wisps were in danger as he ventured through Aquarium Park in Sonic Colours, with Eggman’s Interstellar Amusement Park laying claim to this planet for its feudal era-inspired architecture and expansive ocean. The evil Doctor’s lust for conquest later drove him to the Lost Hex, and became master of the Deadly Six, only for the Zeti to usurp him at the first opportunity; Sonic’s travels across the planetoid in Sonic Lost World soon led him to Sky Road where he confronted Zavok alone.

Select themes from both Zones, all composed by Tomoya Ohtani, have proven to be similar enough to be mashed up for this week’s Mash-Up Monday, as DarkHyperSonic7 has demonstrated with Aquarium Park Act 1 and “Dragon Dance.” Give it a listen below!

Sound Test Saturday: Unlimited Colours!

For this week’s Sound Test Saturday, we will be taking a look at a couple of remixes dedicated to Sonic Colours, a Nintendo exclusive entry that breathed new life into the franchise with some of the most zaniest yet colourful stages, gameplay mechanics, and of course, music, in the entire series.

Let’s start with something unique: a House mix of the Green Hover Wisp theme by Stylez-T!

Update: The video has been removed. Thanks to Darksonic20 for the notice.

As if the Hover theme wasn’t relaxing enough. Stylez here somehow managed to make a blissfully happy and sleep-inducing track even more sleep-inducing and happy. Of course, what’s most impressive is how Stylez turned a short, soft, situational loop into a full fledged 4 minute track! Definitely the last sort of thing I expecting! His “Hover House” mix at least deserves that credit.

And now, we dive into a unique remix, combining Aquarium Park with… Mystic Mansion from Sonic Heroes!

…wait, what?

New Sonic Colours Screenshots, Violet “Void” Wisp Revealed

Many new screenshots for both Wii & DS versions of Sonic Colours have arisen at Andriasang, which feature the Aquarium Park stage and our first real look at the Asteroid Coaster stage. Asteroid Coaster lives up to its name, with the levels built around rocky asteroids, which appear to have been polluted with toxic waste, and yes, a roller coaster is present, a skeletal prehistoric themed one. The DS screenshots reveal the Violet Wisps “Void” powers, which give Sonic the ability to float and to suck up enemies into his vortex. This Wisp is exclusive to the DS version. The Wii screenshots allow us to see more of the yesterday revealed Purple “Frenzy” Wisps chomping powers in action. This Wisp is exclusive to the Wii version and judging by the screenshots, it can be used in both 2D and 3D spaces. The bosses from both stages in each version are also on display in full force, giving us a peek at their battle strategies.
