Sonic 3 & Knuckles, compared to the original Sonic the Hedgehog and its sequel, had an entire team of artists behind the game’s musical score, compared to the talents of Masato Nakamura working on the first two games in the series solo. Spearheaded by the late Michael Jackson, the King of Pop himself, and Brad Buxer, the result was that nine different composers had worked on the soundtrack for the 1994 SEGA Genesis classic, leading to an incredibly cinematic and highly varied OST that still resonates with fans to this day.

Mash-Up Monday: Sonic Wright – Hedgehog Attorney

HOLD IT! Don’t move anywhere just yet! This Mash-Up Monday trial has only just begun!

Two crucial pieces of evidence have been brought forward, thanks to Eggman Enterprises.

Mash-Up Monday: Afro Circus Zone

This was borderline Freak-Out Friday material… But hey, why not start our week off with this?

Like a bad joke, Arique decided to combine the infamous Carnival Night Zone’s music with the hypnotic Afro Circus by Marty, the zebra of Madagascar fame.

Mash-Up Monday: Flash Battery Zone

With Sonic the Hedgehog and Megaman set to cross over throughout the upcoming year, thanks to Archie Comics, it’s about time some music has been mashed together, wouldn’t you all say?

For the most mega occasion of Mash-Up Monday, Dr. Wily sends one of his Robot Masters to take over one of Dr. Eggman’s airships!

Flash Man’s stage from Megaman 2 with Flying Battery Zone from Sonic 3 & Knuckles, everyone!
