Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Gets Mega Man Theme Arrangement From Nier: Automata Composer

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Gets Mega Man Theme Arrangement From Nier: Automata Composer

Yes please.

Super Smash Bros. has a tradition of taking famous music tracks and tunes from the games it pulls its characters from to fill its massive crossover roster. Oftentimes Smash Bros. gets well-known guest composers to arrange the songs and for Ultimate Smash managed to pair together Nier: Automata composer Keiichi Okabe with Mega Man.

In an unlisted video posted on the Smash Bros. YouTube channel this week Flash Man's theme gets arranged by Okabe in a best of both worlds scenario. Okabe is probably best known for their work on both Nier and Nier: Automata which based on the number of albums, arranged albums, and concert tours is popular for a reason. Okabe has also done music for games like Tekken.

Mega Man music is in Super Smash Bros. because the blue bomber joined the Smash roster back in Super Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U. The Flash Man theme is from Mega Man 2 which had Flash Man as a robot master boss.

Super Smash Bros. games usually have a feature where you can unlock and listen to tracks whenever you want, and it should be even easier on the Switch since it's a portable console. For more info check out our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate guide for previews, news, trailers, and more.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out on the Nintendo Switch on December 7.
