I was inspired to make this ReMix after listening to somebody else's arrangement of the same theme, the Castle from Super Mario World. Like many others I've been a huge fan of the series' music for some time, but that particular theme is one of the most dark and exciting songs in any of the games, in my opinion. Even moreso than Bowser in Super Mario 64.

Anyway, the mix uses everything but the kitchen sink... huge custom synths, guitars, symphonic orchestra, church organ, you name it. I really wanted to bring out that ominous feel of the Castle theme and then amplify it further. Hope you enjoy it!

Excellent

This song is so much better than that one currently on the Top 30. The most important part of the original was the summit, and your version does the summit perfectly.

If only it sounded like this in the game.

Of course given the capability of the SNES...
Anyway, I love this song. So many different noises and instruments put together but in a way that works. This song is just really epic... I mean what isn't epic about a big church organ?!
I didn't like the thunder the first time I heard it though.... but only because I thought it was real thunder from outside.
Anyway, great work.

Majestic! This should be submitted to Nintendo.

This is hands-down, THE best remix of the castle theme for Super Mario World. It definitely stands out as one of the best songs ever composed by Koji Kondo, but you have managed to perfect it for new generations.

Congratulations on your mixing talents. You have a good ear. This belongs right up there with Nintendo's own remix of this song played in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In fact, i think it's better than that short one they did. Yours should be used for a future Mario game. It's too good a song for Nintendo to let go of.
