Famicom 20th Anniversary Arrange Sound Tracks


Nine tracks by nine different arrangers make up this eclectic mix of themes from more than 10 different NES games. Kicking things off on the Mario end, Shinji Hosoe brings us a weird 80's-ish arrangement of the "Fever theme" from Dr. Mario, accented with a distorted robotic voice repeating "I am a doctor." The next track is Motoaki Furukawa's arrangement of the Yoshi's Cookie main theme, spiced up with an overdriven electric guitar. Motoi Sakuraba's excellent arrangement of the Super Mario Bros. main theme would fit in well in a modern-day RPG, and is just over five minutes in length.

Shinji "MEGATEN" Hosoe is also credited for composing the "Metroid Fusion Arrange Version" track on "Metroid Prime & Fusion OST", also published by Scitron. Motoi Sakuraba has composed music for the Star Ocean series, Golden Sun, and the Mario Golf and Mario Tennis series.
