As some of you guys noticed this channel was initially dedicated to random videos and some OST's (thus the Dissidia FF OST present), so when I heard this album I couldn't help but want to upload it, so here it is. (Don't worry about Merlin, it's still up and active, think of this as a side project). And besides, Captain Falcon happens to be one of my favorite characters. I won't be uploading the whole thing, just some tracks, the most famous and best ones (it'll have it's own playlist so go and check it out if you want to listen to the songs!). Toshinori also happens to be one of my favorite guitarists.

Cue game description...

F-Zero (エフゼロ) is a series of futuristic racing video games originally created by Nintendo EAD. The series has been known for its high-speed racing, unique characters and settings, difficult gameplay, original music, and pushing the limits of its technology to be one of the fastest racing games ever. The franchise has been recognized for having the first racing game to be developed this realistically which also offered an original scenario and style of gameplay. In fact, one of Nintendo's most popular characters, Captain Falcon (キャプテン・ファルコン), an accomplished F-Zero pilot and renowned bounty hunter, is F-ZERO's most well-known character, with his symbolic "Falcon Punch (Panch)!".

I love how they managed to make the song have the same vibe the original had, that "tense" techno like feeling, those keyboards coupled with Toshinori's godlike guitar skills (a guitarist I respect and admire a lot because of his unique style) makes a very great arrange. Here's the original for you guys to listen:

Now, enjoy the video!
