This week the VGMs and I have something special in store for you. All edition long we're dedicating the VGMs to the fighting games you know (and may not know) and love. This week we have Marvel VS. Capcom, Street Fighter IV, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl to name a few. Let's get the music moving, shall we?
v516. Marvel VS. Capcom 2 - Clock Tower Stage
I just recently got into this game since it went half off on the PlayStation Store. It's quite fun even though I completely blow at it. I got into the series thanks to Tatsunoko VS. Capcom which we've heard music from earlier in my list of VGMs. Whether you like 2-on-2 or 3-on-3 combat, either game is the right choice for a fighting fan! The theme I've selected to first represent this game is a jazzy piece for the Clock Tower Stage.
v517. Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars - Yatterman's Workshop
Let's continue the fighting theme with another song from Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars for the Nintendo Wii. This time we're taking a listen to the jazz fusion track known as Yatterman's Workshop. Between Ryu, Zero, Ken the Eagle, and Mega Man Volnutt, there's a lot of characters I really enjoy playing as. Who are your favorites?
v518. Street Fighter IV - Volcanic Rim Stage
We continue our pugilist's passion with another fighting game to add to the list. We've yet to do a Street Fighter song on this entire list. We change that with Volcanic Rim from the Street Fighter IV soundtrack. It's my personal favorite track on the entire soundtrack. While I personally couldn't get into SFIV, I realize that it is a great fighting game all the same.
v519. TMNT Tournament Fighters - Metal Works Stage
The Metal Works stage is home to none other than the intimidating Cyber Shredder. This is the Super Nintendo version of the game featuring the best sound and graphical quality of the three released versions (SNES, Genesis, and NES). TMNT Tournament Fighters was a very competent fighting game, and it was one of the best as a child growing up.
v520. Super Smash Bros. Brawl - Main Theme
We conclude our fighter fantasy with a game that is arguably in the genre, Super Smash Bros, Brawl. The main theme was composed by none other than the incomparable Nobuo Uematsu, and it sounds absolutely heavenly. The latin choir, the full symphonic orchestra, the epic-ness of it all... it's just a terrific song to represent the best and newest installment of the series.
K.O.! The VGMs are down for the count this week, but next week they'll be back for more. That you can definitely count on! For more VGM goodness, just search SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs in the search bar. See you next week.
