The original composer of Sonic the Hedgehog’s Green Hill Zone soundtrack has released a new version of the legendary theme with lyrics.
Masato Nakamura roped in his J-pop group Dreams Come True to help write the new version and star in its video, in celebration of Sonic’s 30th anniversary (thanks, VGC ).
Titled “Tsugino Seno! De – On The Green Hill”, the video below includes numerous visual nods to Sega’s mascot, while Nakamura himself plays bass. Appropriately, the lyrics speak of running through forests and over green hills, which is also what the video is all about:
This new version seems to have official approval, too. Former Sonic Team boss Yuji Naka has celebrated the track’s release and pointed to a second, more retro-themed version with Sonic-like sound effects.
“I feel quite nostalgic,” Naka wrote. “It is unique to the composer of Sonic 1. It feels like Sonic’s 30th anniversary. I’m happy.”
? Sonic 1’s Green Hill Zone song will be released next week. There is Sonic on the back of the CD. Sonic-like SE is also ringing, and I feel quite nostalgic. It is unique to the composer of Sonic 1. It feels like Sonic’s 30th anniversary. I’m happy. https://t.co/VmCtsMBj0l pic.twitter.com/98nLl9FdpW
