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.

Watch The Altered Beasts perform an acoustic jazz guitar cover of the Super Mario Bros 2 Overworld Theme

Absolutely beautiful cover of the music from Super Mario Bros 2 by The Altered Beasts, an offshoot of the amazing The OneUps VG jazz group. 

Considering they are part of the impeccable OneUps, it's clear that they know their instruments, and create an impressive jazz rendition of this well known, but sometimes overlooked theme from the odd middle child of the SMB family.
