What a morning! Why not start off Friday right with some Smash tunes? Sakurai’s got you covered with quite the update that spans multiple facets of the new Smash games. If you’re a music lover like myself, today’s update will barely keep you in the seat of your pants.

“Pic of the day. The 3DS version has an excellent Sounds collection! The design looks nice for a sound test screen, doesn’t it? The font color for the “Remix” text on remixed songs comes in pink or white. The pink ones are songs arranged for this version of Super Smash Bros., while the white ones are remixes made in earlier Smash Bros. games. This means there are reoccurring songs from past releases.”

“Choose your songs and play with features on the bottom screen. You can listen to character voices, too. One of the new highlights for this feature is the ‘Play in Sleep Mode’ option in the upper right. If you turn this on, you can listen to the tracks with your headphones even when your Nintendo 3DS is closed. The L and R buttons will let you skip tracks. This means you can use it as a portable music player. Enjoy listening to the tracks you love by putting all songs in loop, shuffle, or selecting your favorite tracks!”

Time and time again, Smash Bros. conquers with its stellar soundtrack. There may not be a sole game series out there with the musical power that Smash Bros. possesses. Some of the best tunes and composers join the fray with each installment. It’s truly amazing to see how it all comes together.

But wait, there’s more!

“In Smash Run, the background music plays randomly from the songs you select from the track list. This means you can customize your own song lineup!! Usually each stage has two tracks – which makes for a lot of songs on its own – but as a bonus, we’ve added more songs for you to enjoy in Smash Run and in the Sounds area.”

As a bonus? Mr. Sakurai, what isn’t a bonus in this game? There are so many features and additions, it’s hard to keep up! If you’re a Smash Run enthusiast like myself, this should definitely get you hyped. Customized Smash Run playlists is more than a Smasher could ask for.

But wait, there’s still more!

“By the way, here’s another music announcement!! You can now listen to some of the tracks on the official website. We’re planning to add more tracks a little at a time, so stay tuned.”

You can check out the now-updated music page where a few tracks have already been posted – a new “Multi-Man Smash” theme, the Trainer Battle them from Pokemon X and Y, and “Full Steam Ahead” from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.

And about that earlier mention of composers. The music page has a list of composers working on the new Smash. Note that this list is titled with “Musicians of 3DS Version” so we may see a different or larger list for the Wii U version. It reads as follows:
