Super Smash Bros Tribute Album Announced

Shinesparkers, the talented group behind Harmony of a Hunter, has announced that they’re preparing a tribute to Nintendo’s popular fighter, Super Smash Bros. This fan project aims to encapsulate all three Smash Bros games – the original Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 64, GameCube sequel Melee and Brawl on Wii. The album will be titled Harmony of Heroes and will be available as a free digital download when it’s released in 2014. Here’s what Darren from Shinesparkers had to say about the exciting project.

“Our latest project builds on the success of our previous projects Harmony of a Hunter and Harmony of a Hunter: 101% Run, which were created in celebration and support of Metroid’s twenty fifth anniversary. While we were proud of our achievements, we were overwhelmed by the love and support of our albums that we decided to consider another. After 101% Run released and seventy five tracks later, we were satisfied that we had effectively covered the vast majority of music from the Metroid franchise to a standard that many fans could appreciate. But we also knew that it would be difficult to fill a third album of music from the franchise.”

“It was important that our next album had a different focus, but still appealed to the dedicated and loyal fan base we had received. To ensure this was still achievable, we decided that Harmony of Heroes would also be highly diverse in terms of musical genre and feature musicians like our previous projects. We identified that a lot of Metroid fans were also fans of other Nintendo franchises and Super Smash Bros, so we felt it would be a desirable project. Super Smash Bros is a hot topic right now with fans eagerly anticipating the upcoming games on Nintendo Wii U and 3DS.”

“Harmony of Heroes will focus on music from all three Super Smash Bros games and feature some of the most cherished and loved franchises in Nintendo history, including Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Star Fox, Kirby and Pokemon. We also want to assure people that the Metroid franchise will be suitably represented in Harmony of Heroes. I can confirm that some musicians from our previous projects will be contributing music to this album, as well as brand new musicians hoping to make their debut for the first time. Harmony of Heroes will be assisted by Pyro Paper Planes and Buoy, two musicians from Harmony of a Hunter. Both of them have been a huge and essential support to the project so far, offering some great advice and suggestions to make this album something incredibly special. You will be hearing more from them during the development of this project. We are also thankful to Sam Dillard for creating and scoring our announcement trailer.”

“Finally, I would like to confirm that Harmony of Heroes will be released in 2014 as a free digital release via our website. We hope that Smash Bros fans will look forward to our project and that fans of Shinesparkers and Harmony of a Hunter will continue to support us.”

  1. Hey, sickr! Thanks for this post! I’m a member and content writer for Shinesparkers and although I’m not directly involved with the Harmony projects, I’m a huge fan of Darren’s work getting together so many talented musicians for the albums and love seeing these kinds of posts around the web!

    The Harmony of a Hunter albums were amazing, but being Metroid-oriented their fanbase is limited to a certain niche. I’m sure Harmony of Heroes will be a success throughout all of Nintendo’s various fandoms!

      1. Darren also loves Zelda very much. Of course Zelda themes will be featured in HoH, but a full album for the series is always amongst the requests. We’ll just have to wait and see. :)

    1. Nintendo announced that they will show SSB4 at E3, the only thing they haven’t announced is how they will show it like a game play trailer or even a demo mode so it’s exciting to see what they will do. :3

  4. I believe that those bodies are the bodies for the actual game, they look to amazing just for a advertisment. Also, Does anyone else think maybe the 4th game could be called ‘tribute’ or something similar?
