Video Game Music of the Week - 309
Star Fox (SNES)
Main Theme, Training Mode, Corneria, Meteor, Fortuna
Star Fox is the first game in the Star Fox series, releasing on the Super Nintendo in 1993. It was titled Starwing in Europe and Australia, and the series has since been considered one of Nintendo's major franchises.
The game itself, along with the following games in the series often feature a recurring theme or melody that has its roots based in this track specifically. The melody found in this song is also placed amongst certain different tracks in the game such as the Stage Select and Control Screen theme.
The Training Theme features some intense elements mixed in with some more milder themes. This is a great combination for a theme that introduces you to the game in a safe environment.
This is the games first stage theme and is one hell of an introduction track. It is a very rock-driven theme with an electric guitar-like instrument.
The electric guitar makes an appearance again in this theme, but it's the sense of uneasiness in the theme that gives it its true characteristic.
This track is a super fun theme with a very casino-like vibe, yet there is still a sense of mystery littered within it's theming.
