Super Smash Bros. for 3DS Musicians Announced

Smash Bros. 3DS Musicians

In this morning’s “Pic of the day” update, Masahiro Sakurai showed off the sound test mode of the upcoming 3DS game, along with revealing a list of composers working on the game’s soundtrack. In this version of the game the sound test mode can be used even while the system is in sleep mode, and allows players to skip tracks with the L and R buttons. Additionally, Sakurai mentioned that players can queue up their own custom playlist of the game’s music for Smash Run mode. It is unclear whether this refers to the entire soundtrack or only songs composed specifically for Smash Run.

Much like in Super Smash Brothers Brawl the game will feature arrangements by a wide variety of composers, including many well-known names such as Yasunori Mitsuda and Hirokazu “Hip” Tanaka. Bandai Namco’s involvement in the game is perhaps more clearly visible here than any other part of the game, with over a third of the game’s musicians being from the company. In the spirit of the Smash Bros. series, Namco’s musicians represent the history of their own company, having working on games ranging from the 1988 SPLATTERHOUSE and the 1989 Valkyrie no Densetsu to more recent games like THE IDOLM@STER, Taiko: Drum Master, and Katamari Damacy.

The full list of musicians can be viewed here, along with a few clips of the game’s music.
