SEGA's Jun Senoue explains why he worked on a Mega Man 4 medley for Smash Bros. Ultimate

Did you know that Sonic Team sound director Jun Senoue worked on the Mega Man 4 medley in Smash Bros. Ultimate? Wondering why Senoue chose Mega Man 4 out of all the different game options to compose for? Check out his explanation for the decision below.

This is a picture of a Capcom Mega Man/Sega Sonic crossover comic book sold in America. The moment I first saw this, I immediately thought: ‘why don’t I try doing a Mega Man track in the style of the Sonic series?’ That’s when I started to work out how it would all go together. For the sake of a Nintendo release, a sound designer for SEGA is remixing a song from a Capcom game.

When you write it down like that it does seem kind of ridiculous, but I thought this might be a really rare chance I should make the most of. From all the many songs in the Mega Man series, I decided to use music from Mega Man 4. Around the time I first played that title I was a university student still obsessed with the original Sonic the Hedgehog game, so it has a real emotional attachment for me.

Mega Man 2 composer on making 'cool' music, working with NES constraints, requests from the director, and more

Mega Man 2 composer Takashi Tateishi was part of the Mega Man-athon 7 charity marathon that took place during MAGFest this weekend, and he shared a bunch of details on what many consider to be the finest entry in the series. Check out what Tateishi had to say below.

- Tateishi didn’t find out how popular Mega Man 2 was, nor how popular the Metal Blade was, until around 10 years ago
- Tateishi made a few songs that were “cute” sounding, which ended up getting rejected in favor of “cool” sounding songs
- the only “cute” song that made it in was Crash Man stage
- Flame Man stage uss all three channels to simulate bass, as the Famicom wasn’t able to produce bass sounds wel1
- Dr. Wily Stage 1 theme plays during Stage 2 as well because the team ran out of memory space on the Famicom cartridge
- the theme had to be played over and over at the same interval in order to compose the whole thing
- if there were more space available then, the track would have ended up sounding very different
- development time was short, so Tateishi might not have had time to compose more tracks either way
- Akira Kitamura, director of Mega Man 2, was very impressed with Dr. Wily Stage 1
- Kitamura asked Tateishi to make another track that was similar, which ended up being used for Wood Man’s stage
- Quick Man’s theme was composed with Kitamura asking Tateishi to compose a song that would tell players to hurry up
- the final stage's lack of music before the fight against “Dr. Wily” was Kitamura’s idea
- most of the songs in Mega Man 2 are loud and seemingly played with a guitar, except Bubble Man’s stage
- Bubble Man's stage was more piano-oriented
- Tateishi couldn’t make Bubble Man's theme too quiet, or it would be rejected by Kitamura
- Tateishi’s favorite boss is Metal Man, while his favorite tune composed is the ending theme
- Tateishi last played Mega Man 2 five years ago
- Tateishi respects Kitamura a lot, and regards Kitamura and Inafune as creative geniuses
