    Super Metroid is often praised for its lonely and atmospheric feel which is communicated through an incredible soundtrack by Kenji Yamamoto and Minako Hamano. Even today the game's audio holds up rather well and further proves how powerful the Super Nintendo's soundchip really was. Paying tribute to the composers, fans of the series have made their own remixes and rearrangements of the game's music - some of which has just gone full circle and ended up in the game.
    Back in 2013 Blake Robinson released an incredible Super Metroid tribute album which featured each an orchestral take on each and every track from the game. Dubbed [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], many fans applauded Robinson for his work and ability to stay true to the game's backing track, all whilst providing a modern sounding alternative to Yamamoto and Hamano's work.

    Also as of late, Super Nintendo homebrew developers discovered a way to play full motion video and CD quality audio on the 16-bit console without a disc drive in sight, all through the custom-built MSU-1 enhancement chip. This development has since seen the Mega CD's [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], along with high quality soundtrack alterations to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. The latter of these hacks takes the original game and replaces the in-game audio with a selection of MP3s to play during the game when requested.
    Using this technique, fans of the series have managed to rebuild the soundtrack to Super Metroid to use Robinson's work instead. Although the original music is timeless, this MSU-1 hack of the game provides yet another great reason to play through Super Metroid, and what we can only hope is more exposure to Robinson's work.
    Arriving as a downloadable ROM hack patch, fans who have bought Super Metroid Symphony will be able to bring their digital download into the game using the provided instructions. This will then be playable through the emulator [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], or on the original hardware using the expensive [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - the only one providing MSU-1 support. For everyone else, here is a quick preview of the Super Metroid MSU-1 hack in action.
