This is a remix of the main theme of Alpha Mission, an early vertically-scrolling shooter from SNK, otherwise known in Japan as ASO: Armored Scrum Object. SYD is the spacecraft that the player controls. Due to the limited instrumentation of the original game's music, the remix takes many liberties and uses an orchestral approach; it begins with the jingle that plays when a player inserts a credit, and incorporates both "Theme of SYD" and "SYD Overdrive", the two songs that play in each area of the game.

This is a remix of the main theme from Psycho Soldier, a side-scrolling platformer from SNK. The original rendition of the theme is notable for being the first video game song with sampled lyrics. This version uses the Japanese lyrics from the song's single release, and is performed by Kanako Kotera.[1] The song is arranged with a fast-paced orchestral rock style, similar to that of anime theme songs from the 1980s, and remains faithful to the original single's three verse structure, though the final verse's key is raised by a full step.

Trivia[edit]

  • According to Masahiro Sakurai's Famitsu column, this song was recorded over 6 months prior to Terry's release. The English version was recorded first, followed by the Japanese version. It was carefully mixed by the arranger, Yuzo Koshiro, to resemble a song from the '80s, contemporary to the original game's release. In total, over 80 individual tracks went into the final mix of the song.[2]

Origin[edit]

This is a remix of a major theme from Art of Fighting, a prequel and companion series to Fatal Fury. Though it debuted as the theme for Ryuhaku Todoh, it is more closely associated with Ryo Sakazaki. The remix keeps the original's bass-focused approach, but uses traditional Japanese instruments like shakuhachi and shamisen, more akin to the Fatal Fury Special version of the song.

A remix of the theme used first on the boss fight with Hairbuster Riberts in Mission 2, Mission 3, and the final boss fight with General Morden and his Hi-Do helicopter in the first Metal Slug game. It was also used in later games: the boss fight against Dragon Nosuke and first of the Final Mission themes in Metal Slug 2, the outer factory route in Mission 3 and the Hi-Do and fake General Morden boss fight in Metal Slug 3. The remix stays very close to the orchestration of the original song, only adding minor synthesized flourishes.

Trivia[edit]

  • When selecting music for Terry's Challenger Pack, Masahiro Sakurai initially focused on songs related to Terry, but noted that a lot of them had a "big band" style, and wanted to branch out into other SNK franchises to add more variety. He sent a list of 50 song choices to SNK, expecting them to pick out 10 or 20, but SNK agreed to all of them, much to his surprise.[3] As a result, Fatal Fury has the most music of any third-party and DLC series, and the second highest amount of music after Mario.
  • Fatal Fury and Pac-Man share the distinction of including music from outside their series of origin.
  • At 17, the Fatal Fury franchise is tied with the Mega Man franchise with the most amount of new remixes in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
