It is kind of odd since there were already some compositions in the NTSC version that sounded like music from the SNES version. For a while I just assumed that the PAL version just switched some themes around but no they've been totally replaced.
True. And despite the popular assumption, not all PAL games had slower tempo than NTSC, mostly just the earlier ones.Eh, for me it depends on song, despite being more used the slower version I don't mind this here.
Whoa... I never realised it until now, but Wario's Woods does have really good music. (I have never played Wario's Woods)I talked about it before a couple of years ago, though nobody seemed to notice, but does anyone else find it odd how the Pal version of NES Wario's Woods had a couple of songs changed? Compare the two Round Game themes for instances:
Granted I actually really love the Pal songs, but I can't help but wonder why it happened.
It's really not that crazy when you rule out the possibilities...It's just so random, I mean with let's say, the US Sonic CD soundtrack I at least see a mindset behind the decision to create a new OST for a select part of the world (even if I disagree with it.), but with NES Wario's Woods it's just so out of the blue, pointless and even inconsistent, since a few songs like the Round Clear theme are still the same.
A really odd move indeed.
Wario's Woods... Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine... It is misleading to consumers, but not been able to play as the titular character isn't a bad thing. They are the biggest plot device and tie the game's scenario together. (Also, this was made when Wario's home studio was trying to get him off the ground and make him known)
Indeed. At least they don't pretend it never existed, like they do with... well, you know.View attachment 6802
It's a very small thing, but I always really do appreciate to see Wario's Woods acknowledged, even if it's just for a small trivia tidbit.
