Music has at all times been an enormous a part of the Avenue Fighter sequence. Hell, you may’t even take into consideration the 2001 arcade recreation Capcom Vs SNK 2 with out the piano riff from This Is True Love We’re Making enjoying in your head. That shit slaps and it’s sounding like the parents over Capcom are cooking up some extra banger tunes in Avenue Fighter 6.
Right this moment, the official Avenue Fighter YouTube web page uploaded the brand new theme music for its “preventing hobo” Ryu known as “Viator.” Though I’d skipped out on listening to the brand new themes for Luke and the lady-who-never-skips-leg-day, Chun-Li, one thing came to visit me in the present day and I made a decision to provide Ryu’s new bop a hear. Of us, I’d simply should put down Juri Han and predominant Ryu in Avenue Fighter 6 as a result of his new theme is straight warmth.
It ought to come as no shock that the longest theme (up to now) would go to the sequence flagship character, however what I didn’t anticipate was for his theme to be funky as hell. I needed to verify my tabs to verify I didn’t have 2 Mello’s music enjoying within the background by mistake. The flavour textual content in Ryu’s theme description wasn’t kidding when it mentioned we’ll really feel the journey he’s been on all through the sequence and the vitality SF6 has in retailer for him. I’d wager a part of Ryu’s journey concerned an tour to Jet Set Radio’s Tokyo-to with how groovy “Viator” is.
In distinction to Ryu’s Avenue Fighter V theme, which had all of the pomp and circumstance of a music that will play through the finale of a fantasy anime battle, “Viator” is extra trendy and upbeat, matching the colour splash of graffiti imagery showcased in SF6’s parries and finishers.
“Viator’s” groovy hip hop report scratches intermingled with the euphoric roar of trumpets and licks from what I can assume is a shimasen harmoniously replicate Ryu’s numerous battles throughout the globe whereas additionally supplying you with one thing to bounce your booty to whereas kicking folks’s asses.
After replaying Ryu’s theme a number of instances in the present day, I began to chuckle on the parental advisory warning at first of the video viewers that “could comprise content material inappropriate for youngsters.” Although Ryu’s theme isn’t fairly “baby-making music,” it’s fairly shut. Let’s simply hope for Sakura’s sake Capcom doesn’t put her in SF6 as a result of lord is aware of what’ll occur if she’s on the other finish of Ryu’s new theme.
