Tips for Buying EarthBound

July 23rd, 2011 | Audio Stuff, MOTHER 3

Here’s a really cool remix of the battle music against the N.K. Cyborg in MOTHER 3, as it would sound on an old-school MMC5 chip for the NES:

Man, hearing music like that in an old NES game back in the day would’ve been amazing. I always really enjoy NES/8-bit demakes of modern game music, I wish I could take some of them and go back in time and be a kick-ass game musician 😛

Thanks to NewAgeRetroGamer for the chiptune mix and RobertHMayfire for the tip!

It’s pretty good, bit I’d really like to see is a SID style remix

Man, I don’t remember this song at all! I think it’s time I replay MOTHER 3 ;D

Eh, it isn’t the most faithful of transcriptions. I didn’t like it.

A MOTHER 3 remake on the NES just wouldn’t work in my opinion.. things like events and cutscenes in MOTHER 3 (even in battle) just wouldn’t work with the NES’s processing. Good song nonetheless..

Really awesome!

GAH! I instantly started humming Mega Man 2 Wileys fort stage 1 as soon as the main guitar part came in. Now I feel old!

Oh mah gawd!

IT SOUNDS LIKE…

Dr. Wily’s castle music from mega man 2.

Sure it’d be possible to remake this game on the NES. All they’d have to do is bring back random encounters and make it just a Dragon Quest clone again.

Nice, I recognized the riff was from Mega Man 2. Couldn’t remember it was from Dr. Wiley’s stage though. That’s intense.
