A year ago we saw a teaser for a musical tribute to the Super Smash Bros. series called Harmony of Heroes. Word on the project has been mostly silent since its announcement, but we met up with Darren Kerwin, the album’s director and producer, to discuss their progress.

Kerwin says that Harmony of Heroes will feature a wide variety of musical styles with about twice as much music as the team’s last project, Harmony of a Hunter: 101% Run, which supplements the original Harmony of a Hunter to form the ultimate Metroid fan album. A few months ago, the team released a new trailer for Harmony of Heroes to show off four sneak peeks at some of the album’s music, which you can see above.

Gamnesia: Is Harmony of Heroes specifically for music that was used in the Smash Bros. series, or is it more emblematic of Nintendo music as a whole?

“Harmony of Heroes is focused on the first three Smash Bros titles. Super Smash Bros, Super Smash Bros: Melee and Super Smash Bros: Brawl. Music. We are specifically working on creating remixes and arrangements of music already present in those games, however you will also hear a few cameos to other themes closely connected to those franchises to keep things interesting.” — Darren Kerwin

The team currently plans to launch Harmony of Heroes some time this year, but when exactly that may be is still unknown.

“At this moment in time, we are receiving the final few tracks back from musicians, and will be wrapping the music side of things shortly. However, it still needs to go through a mastering process, which will be taking place at some point in the next few months. We are also about to start work on the Harmony of Heroes website and a second trailer. There are a number of things we still need to work on to ensure this album is the very best it can be, and appreciate the patience.” — Darren Kerwin

I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
