Gradius III NES/Famicom Arrangements

Synopsis

Originally I released this as an album: "Option Fire." Truthfully, though, I've been dissatisfied with that choice as it leaves little room for future adjustments and additions. Furthermore, it makes it seem a bit too "official," which is an issue when making unauthorized fan works. It also prevents the possibility of releasing songs incrementally, and forces you to release them all at once.

As such, I've chosen to re-release this as a "project" instead (or rather, un-release the original album, perhaps). The original blurb about this work can still be read below, though.

Option Fire was kind of a funny thing. Despite Gradius III having one of my favorite soundtracks, it took me years to do even a single arrangement. But, as soon as I finished Mechanical Base, which I intended to be a one-shot, I decided to just do the rest of the soundtrack.

As I got more into making chip music, Konami's Famicom soundtracks were a huge influence on my style, and continue to be even as I push towards non-2A03 music. This is my tribute to them for that.
