I’m sure some of you know this now with Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars being out and all, but Roll’s longtime theme song, “Kaze yo Tsutaete” (roughly “Bequeath the Wind”) has been translated and localized for this title. Originally written for the 1997 game Mega Man Battle & Chase, the song has also been featured in games such as Marvel vs. Capcom and Rockman Complete Works. Furthermore, an 8-bit edition by Chibitech was the leading track of last year’s Chiptuned Rockman album from Inti Creates. While I have not yet jumped on the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom beat down bandwagon, and don’t know many details about the new arrangement, staff Splashman kindly provided me with the track. You can have a listen yourself.
It’s a pretty good rendition all in all. However I have to admit that the singer they chose makes the song sound even closer to Taylor Dayne’s “Tell It To My Heart“.
