Sonic recovers the mythical theme Green Hill Zone and writes it for the first time

Sonic recovers the mythical theme Green Hill Zone and writes it for the first time

Masato Nakamura composed the original soundtracks for Sonic The Hedgehog and Sonic The Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Mega Drive, two titles that came out in the early 1990s. Now, the character is celebrating his anniversary, since this year he celebrates nothing more and nothing less than 30 years since his debut. On the occasion of this very special birthday, the pop band Dreams Come True, of which Nakamura has been a member since the eighties, has covered the legendary Green Hill Zone theme. And what is more interesting, it has provided a letter (in Japanese, yes).

The piece, renamed Tsugino Seno! From – On The Green Hill, talks about going through forests and hills, reasons that anyone can recognize from Sonic, who runs at full speed through these types of locations. In the video, which you can see below, there are also visual references reminiscent of SEGA’s mascot. Although the song has been composed by Nakamura (who, by the way, plays bass on this song), Miwa Yoshida has been in charge of the lyrics.

The theme is available on Spotify, but on two different versions. The one with the music video, calmer, and another remixed second version that sounds more like a video game from the 16-bit era. As VGC points out, it is unusual for the band Dreams Come True to cover versions of Sonic. In 1992, the album The Swinging Star featured the song Sweet Sweet Sweet, which became the music for the credits of Sonic 2.

Yuji Naka, sonic creator, has supported the theme: “It feels like Sonic on his 30th anniversary, I’m happy.”

Sonic Colors: Ultimate already has a physical date

The 30th anniversary celebration has not been made with a new game, but SEGA has released Sonic Colors: Ultimate, a remastering of the Wii classic for current systems. Due to logistical problems, the editions in physical format were delayed, but the Japanese company has provided a new date, the October 1st.

The Nintendo Switch version has suffered numerous problems and bugs, so SEGA has just released a new patch.
