SNES Generation Album Merges 16-Bit Sounds With Modern Game Music, and is Awesome
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
The Wind Waker's 'Outset Island' with Link to the Past sounds, oh my...
We do like a bit of top-notch video game music here on Nintendo Life, and a new retro-infused album by Alex Roe has been serenading our ears. The album SNES Generation takes modern games and recreates their music with sounds and samples from equivalent Super NES titles, with some fantastic results.
Possibly our favourite mash-ups, predictably, are "Super Mario Galaxy 'Gusty Garden Galaxy' (Super Mario World)" and "Zelda: The Wind Waker 'Outset Island' (Zelda - A Link to the Past)"; the titles alone tell you how terrific they sound.
This album is presented by Snesology, while Roe encourages anyone to download the album for free from the album's Bandcamp page, though donations are welcome. You can listen to the whole thing below, too, so check it out and post your thoughts in the comments.
Thanks to Shiryu for the tip.
