Music has at all times been an enormous a part of the Avenue Fighter sequence. Hell, you’ll be able to’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 oldsters over at Capcom are cooking up some extra banger tunes in Avenue Fighter 6.
Immediately, the official Avenue Fighter YouTube web page uploaded the brand new theme tune 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 at present and I made a decision to provide Ryu’s new bop a pay attention. Of us, I would simply must put down Juri Han and essential 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 (to date) 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 test my tabs to ensure 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 stated we’ll really feel the journey he’s been on all through the sequence and the power 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 tune 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 document 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 at present, I began to chuckle on the parental advisory warning initially of the video viewers that “could include 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.
