Super Smash Bros. Melee: Smashing...Live!


On August 27th, 2002, the New Japan Philharmonic performed 15 pieces from Super Smash Bros. Melee, live in Tokyo, Japan. The US release came in the form of a Nintendo Power "subscription bonus," bundled with the January 2003 issue.

In the great medley (track 12), the orchestra starts out with 57 seconds of the classic Super Mario Bros. main theme, then quickly switches over to the main theme from Super Mario Bros. 2, which is played for a little over a minute. The next instance of Mario music is at 7:44 into the track, where we are treated to a minute of the "athletic" theme from Super Mario World. A bit later, the Super Mario Bros. 3 main theme is played for about 35 seconds, starting at 9:41. Finally, the "Mushroom Kingdom" theme (a combination of the SMB underground and aboveground themes) from Super Smash Bros. Melee starts at the 12-minute mark and eventually ends the medley.
