Link to the past

Welcome to Morning Music, KotakuA regular hangout for those who love video games and the cool ass sounds they make.Is this GBA melodies the most unheard-of formula today? Zelda Tracks that ever exist?

last week Thread popped up in ResetEra Suggests a particular song from the Game Boy Advance Port The Legend of Zelda: Links to the Past (((playlist / Long play) May be the “most unknown and ambiguous music” Zelda The history of the series. The poster of the era, 404LinkNotFound, is probably correct. I listened to it, and I was convinced I had never heard of it. How about you?

If this is your first time on the track, there is a good reason. As the thread explains, a series of overlapping situations makes it almost impossible to encounter it. One will only play when you complete a hidden dungeon. Palace of the four swords, Added to GBA version Link to the past.. And it’s friends, the process.

First, complete Link to the past.. Bow down, Ganondorf. He has done it. Next, you need to defeat the evil Vaati in the game’s multiplayer mode. Four swords (((Long play), So you need to understand how to start working Four swords You need at least two GBAs (or compatible devices), a link cable, and two Link to the past cartridge. (Of course, having four players makes the game easier, but harder to arrange.) So take a few hours to defeat Vaati.

(If multiplayer is out of the question, there is a known bug that allows you to warp to the end Four swords To do what you need to do.Or you can skip Four swords Fully warp directly to the Secret Palace using glitches or specific emulator cheats. However, these workarounds require knowledge of the internet and will not obscure newly found songs. )

Finally, go back Link to the past, You will have access to the Palace of the Four Swords (walk through) Near the foot of the Dark World Pyramid. And it’s not a cakewalk. Upgraded versions of high-damage enemies and previous bosses are probably the most difficult challenge in any version of Nintendo’s 1991 classic. But if you go this far, you’re probably up to that point.

Anyway, if you defeat the dungeon so that the credits roll, you’ll hear the weird new song above … maybe.You see, it really only exists in the European / PALGBA version Link to the past / Four swords..Players in the US and Japan regions will just get Small GBA version of usually Link to the past Ending music I’ve been listening since 1991:

What the hell are you talking about here? Why is the almost three-minute completely original composition pushed to perhaps the most ambiguous variation of a huge first-party GBA release? Well, the European version came out last. Wikipedia The US version is December 2, 2002, the Japanese version is March 14, 2003, and the PAL is March 28. Perhaps the 14 days between Japan and Europe made all the difference. But still, come on. That’s strange.

What about the new song itself? It’s okay! It certainly fits.You can hear some references to existing Link to the past The melody, and the instrument are similar. But it suffers from the same terrible sound quality as other GBA versions of music, so it seems like you’re listening to a degraded version of something that might have sounded much better in the past.

Only in this case is there no such good version as it is completely specific to the GBA. I’m wondering what this track sounds like when ported to a Super Nintendo sound chip. Link to the past The soundtrack has begun. It sounds like a very fun little project to a chiptune maestro. Maybe someone will do it!

This is the end of today’s morning music! Credits to Masterlink on First discovery, YouTube Ivaalo First upload A little over a year ago, ResetEra’s 404LinkNotFound Make this more noticeable (And Ian who sent me the link!) Just like that, another small part Zelda History has come to light. It’s cool!

So have you heard of this track before? Can you think of other instances of unique content that have been weirdly gated off by amazing regional changes? And how are you doing today? Hello in the comments! The morning music trains have slowed down for a while, so see you later this week. cheers.
