Nier Automata's Composer Arranges Mega Man Music For Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

A while back, we pointed out that the official Super Smash Bros. Ultimate site has been posting music samples for the game's new arrangements. It's not surprising, with the game boasting over 900 tracks, they're clearly proud of the soundtrack they're compiling. However, one new track posted this week definitely stands tall among what they've shown so far.

Flash Man's theme rearranged by composer Keiichi Okabe is an utterly fantastic rendition of the old theme with an added bit of guitar preceding it. You might know Okabe from some of his other works, like Tekken, Nier, and Nier Automata, as well. Take a listen below.

Flash Man is one of Mega Man 2's eight robot masters, so obviously his music is going to play on Mega Man's stage within the game. Conveniently, you can change how frequently you hear any song, so if you really dig this arrangement, you could make it the only song that plays on the stage.

Imogen Heap Creating Music For The Quiet Man, New Details About Story

Square Enix's The Quiet Man, an extremely odd single-sitting narrative adventure beat 'em up, will be getting its main title theme from Grammy-nominated artist and songwriter Imogen Heap. Nothing more is known about the track, but Square Enix insists they will give more details at a later date.

It was also found by Gematsu this week that The Quiet Man will be playable with sounds and speech in subsequent playthroughs. The first playthrough of the game has no sound or dialogue that lets the players interpret the story in their own way. If you want to know how it was actually written, you can play the game a second time. From a Square Enix stream, the publisher said they want the player to understand what it is like to be deaf, like the protagonist Dane.

The Quiet Man releases on PlayStation 4 and PC on November 1.
