The Mega Man X Series album from the Overclocked ReMix community is nearing completion (just look at all the finished tracks!). As if the gigantic track list wasn’t enough, it will also feature a bonus remix of Esperanto from Mega Man Zero 4 (one of my personal favorite tracks from the series).
The artist (who goes by “melody”) had this to say about the track:
With this arrangement i sought to singularize the multi-faceted gem that is esperanto. the original seems to take on the narrative voice of zero; his response to the oppression and genocide that run rampant in rockman zero’s dystopian reality. he awakens from century-long stasis to mere traces of the world he fought to protect in the past, and the song speaks of his noble decision to ultimately press onward in the face of insurmountable odds. an old war hero against the backdrop of a crumbling world, one gets the sense that he truly understands the futility of war and there are overtones of finality as he resolves to make the ultimate sacrifice to propagate his ideals.
Don’t let the YouTube time display fool you, the remix clocks in at around five minutes with the other three and a half filled with Zero 4′s ending.
Warning: The video below does contain spoilers so if you’ve never played the games, you might want to go with the mp3 version.
