Hideki konno week ends with a futuristic metal F-Zero medley

Get pumped with music from the long dormant F-Zero series

Armcannon goes to town on this epic rendition of several series themes. F-Zero and F-Zero X will always hold a special place in my heart as far as VGM is concerned. 

Konno is merely listed as 'Supervisor' for the N64 entry of this series, but hey, every hand helps, and I am always guilty of looking for excuses to play music from F-Zero and/or Armcannon.

Here is a related question, with Konno's success with Mario Kart, would you like to see him give a new F-Zero a try? Considering how Mario Kart 8 has gone, I'd gladly shell out cash for a new F-Zero with futuristic characters like Samus and Fox McCloud as DLC.

Share your thoughts and F-Zero memories with us!

Happy Birthday Hideki Konno! Celebrate with this remix of 'Vanilla Lake' from Super Mario Kart

An upbeat tribute to the Konno directed original

This track is by DJ Bouche, and is a remix of my personal favorite music from Super Mario Kart (mostly because I destroyed fools on Vanilla Lake 2), originally composed by Soyo Oka.

I certainly hope Bouche takes on the rest of the themes in the series with this vibrant style.

What are some of your favorite musical themes from the Mario Kart series? Do they correspond to your favorite tracks in the game?

Hideki Konno week begins with music from his first game, Super Mario Bros 2

Alright, technically his first game was Doki Doki Panic, but still!

Check out this 2012 Remaster of one of my favorite classic OverClocked Remix tracks from the long ago era of 2002. Back in the day when you could download every OCReMix by hand (which I did). This one is the only OCR track submitted by electronic musician DarK PurPLe. 

You can check out the original OCR track here.

Super Mario Bros 2 continues to be the black sheep of the Mario series, even with the inclusion of bob-ombs and shyguys (shout out to Black Shy Guy, my main in Mario Kart 8, also made by Konno) in the everyday life of Super Mario characters these days. 

Do you think nintendo should create a 'New Super Mario Bros. 2?' Something along the lines of the New Super Mario Bros series, but for the plant pulling fun of SMB2.
