The first trailer is here for the Super Smash Bros fan-arrangement album, Harmony of Heroes. Harmony of Heroes will focus on music from all three Super Smash Bros games. The album will be released sometime during 2014 as a free digital release.
I am very proud to share with you, our first official trailer for Harmony of Heroes. We started this project back in January and was able to officially announce it in April. We felt it was now time to share what we have been working on together, and explain in better detail how we are approaching this album.
As Harmony of Heroes progressed, I have spoken to lots of Super Smash Bros fans, ranging from the casual player, to the dedicated and competitive. Some are playing Smash competitively with characters and moves that are widely known and respected in competitive tournament play, or more casually, with obscure characters they love. Sometimes it’s a mix of both, and that has shown me that no matter what your skill level, everyone can enjoy this series of games. I have seen that the Smash Bros community is a diverse and fun place to be, and this has been a focus point in the music for Harmony of Heroes.
Our previous albums, Harmony of a Hunter and Harmony of a Hunter: 101% Run had a variety of genres to suit a wide range of musical tastes and we are applying the same approach to Heroes. We are offering music to suit the broad range of characters and franchises connected with the Smash Bros universe. We have the support of many different types of musicians who express themselves differently, which will offer music in ways that you may not be expecting.
While some music follows closely to the original source, we haven’t been afraid to take popular themes and take them in a completely different direction. While we are respectful of the source content, we feel it’s important to offer a unique experience to those fans. Our most recent trailer highlights five themes we are working on that should hopefully show the diversity and quality that we are striving for in Harmony of Heroes.
It has been a challenging journey so far and I am learning a lot along the way. I would like to thank my team of assistant directors, our musicians, our artists, our growing list of websites and blogs that have been spreading the word about our project and the fans that have supported us so far and those that continue to do so.
For the very latest news on Harmony of Heroes, we recommend checking out our Facebook and Twitter accounts. We are also hoping to launch the official Harmony of Heroes website in 2014. We look forward to creating something very special! We hope you will enjoy Harmony of Heroes when it launches in 2014.
