[ShockWave is a monthly feature which highlights video game music and our favorite soundtracks, for the music lover in every gamer.]
Greetings everyone and welcome back to ShockWave, our monthly video game music feature. While the Super Smash Bros. series has always been about casual fun, I’ve always found the series’ music to be quite a serious matter. In this month’s installment of ShockWave, we’ll be listening to Super Smash Bros. Melee: Smashing…Live!
This live album consists of gorgeous orchestral renditions of select songs from Melee, the second game in the series. That means, by extension, that the songs are from various iconic Nintendo franchises. Of course there’s some original stuff as well – most notably the awesome opening theme.
