Oct, 1st – It’s been around eighteen months since we first announced Harmony of Heroes, and I am so happy to finally announce that we will be releasing Harmony of Heroes on October 4th 2014. The album will have 101 pieces of music, totalling over seven and a half hours, covering a wide range of genres across the many franchises found in Super Smash Bros. Because we don’t expect everyone to listen to the whole album in one sitting (unless you’re hardcore enough to manage it), we have divided up the album by franchise, so you can download it a section at a time. The album will release in both MP3 and M4A (Lossless) format. We are also considering the possibility of a BRSTM release for Project M users.

We are also very happy to introduce Alvin Wee to the team, our mastering engineer. Alvin has been responsible for making sure that Harmony of Heroes sounds as great as it can be. His previous work as a music production engineer includes Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and Kingdom Hearts 2.5HD Remix. Alvin has been an invaluable asset to the team, and has helped us through this very important stage of post-production.

Our DK Rap track “Kong Kollektive” by Sebastian Mårtensson had the support of a very special guest. Grant Kirkhope, the original composer of the track, agreed to record a cameo for us. While it was a small addition to the track, it made a huge impact on the people involved; and we want to extend our sincere thanks to him for getting involved, it was a lot of fun!

Finally, we would like to confirm our listening party for Harmony of Heroes, which will be hosted by Arecibo Radio on the 4th October 2014 at 22:00 UTC, where we will be playing a selection of tracks from the album, along with guest appearances from some of the musicians who arranged them. This is the first opportunity that fans will have to listen to tracks in full.

A lot of time and effort went into Harmony of Heroes. It was created to pay tribute to the Super Smash Bros games, to its franchises and to its dedicated fan base. Harmony of Heroes was only possible due to the hard work and dedication of our team of directors, musicians, artists, engineers, video editors and the many others who should know that their commitment to this album is highly appreciated. We truly hope it’s something that fans of the Smash Bros series will enjoy for many years to come. On behalf of our entire team, we thank you for your support!
