Super Metroid Orchestral Game Concert #4
January 19, 2008
An awesome Super Metroid medley, performed by the Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra at Orchestral Game Concert #4 (1,994). A worthy tribute to what is considered by many to be one of the greatest games of all time. Super Metroid took Metroid's ideas and took them to a new level. It has impeccable level design, and should be considered as 2D gaming design at its finest.
The medley is structured as follows:
Theme of Samus Aran (0:00-2:08)
Brinstar Green Vegetation (2:42-4:00)
Brinstar Red Soil (4:01-5:39)
Super Metroid Ending Theme (5:40-8:05)
The orchestrated take on 'Brinstar - Green Vegetation' is my favourite bit. The climax at (3:37-3:57) is incredibly powerful.
The eye popping Super Metroid HD mock-up is done by Alchemist Defined, whose website you can find at http://alchemistdefined.wiredotaku.com. The artist deserves huge props for this. Super Metroid HD may never come into fruition (perhaps rightly so -- Nintendo shouldn't go the way of say, SquareEnix), so this picture is as close as you'll probably ever get to a remake.
