So, here in Japan, this program Hatsuon Miku has been making it super fucking big with people using it to cover all sorts of songs. Most of them are pretty cool, but this one in particular I thought was awesome. Instead of using it to replace a singer of some regular song, they used it to sing old NES tunes. Here's the video:

And the music, for those who can't read Japanese, try and guess what they are:

Kung fu
Ninja MaruMaru kun
Super Mario 2 (USA)
Dragon Quest 3
Chrono Trigger
Romancing Saga 3 "ellen's theme" "Katrina's theme"
Actraiser

So we've gone from computer voices for things, and acapella videogame tunes, to computer acapella videogame tunes.

Was pretty cool. Reminded me of Katamari Damacy a number of times.

Mitsuda still sounds amazing even when a computerized girl "sings" his work.

That was fucking awesome. I want to do a game where all the music is entirely acapella.

(why did they opt to subtitle all the game names in hiragana? needlessly difficult to read if you're used to seeing the titles in katakana)

Actually it was the Doki Doki Panic version of the song.. they added a new section to the song in Super Mario Bros 2 USA which wasn't present here - instead it looped at the same spot just like in Doki Doki Panic.

Nitpicking, I know.. sorry.

Here's another vid and it shows what the program looks like.

The song has nothing to do with games though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csI4F6GxPUI

It's pretty incredible how "real" it sounds.

Previously mentioned "Fly me to the moon" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bze1ZczI-0

I made a mistake, they read it Hatsune, not Hatsuon.

But why are the track titles in hiragana?

Mmh... I don't like it very much. The voice sounds too "sharp" for NES music.
And it would help if it weren't so out of tune sometimes (it's probably programmed that way but that doesn't make it sound better).

I just realized that Fly Me to the Moon was in English!! :lol But, someone really has to work on something like this that can produce intelligible english sounds...

Considering the ridiculous amount of skits and such that group's been involved in over the years, I was hoping to find an appropriate gif. :(
