Okay, I've made a decision on the source tune for PRC142. We're still with in-house Nintendo products, but sadly, this one's even lesser appreciated than Mario. Damn.
Aaah, Mother 3. Yet another great RPG that never left Japan.
I first played it in October last year through the Starmen.net team's English translation, and what a ride that was! I wouldn't call it a looker though, but as a game it had good pacing/challenge to it, a storyline covering almost every feeling imaginable, and a very fun rhythmic battle system to boot.
Even the music was great stuff, which is why you might have seen me contribute a LOAD of MIDIs of this game to VGMusic over the past few months. That said, for this PRC, I would like to contribute THIS particular track. It reminds me of all the times I struggled through the Fassad boss fights, and amongst all the battle tracks this one has a more persistent melodic approach to it than most of the others, so I can see it being a great candidate for remix coverage. Even if you haven't played the game, odds are you might have heard it through Super Smash Bros Brawl anyway, so there we go :)"
