”Po Town” (Pokemon SM) — arr. Latios212

Sheet music:
https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/browse/series/Pokemon#sheet3319



You’d think it’s a ghost town, but it’s actually one of the darker themes of the Pokemon games—the actual living condition of those bad guy grunts we’re too used to beating up. The track is more haunting than creepy, and it’s particularly eerie when you reach this area. Especially when you realise this is a Pokemon game. Huh.

But anyway, Lat’s arrangement is very faithful to the original and about as clean as it gets! It’s quite an easy read and it’s pretty fun to perform. Definitely give it a shot on a quiet day :)

"Egg Planet (Good Egg Galaxy)" (Super Mario Galaxy) - arranged by Sebastian

Sheet music: https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/browse/series/SuperMario#sheet772



One of the most iconic pieces from Super Mario Galaxy! It’s one of the first things you hear in game and does a great job at setting the stage for the grand majestic journey that awaits.

This arrangement does a good job of using several different textures across the piano to represent the different orchestral moods the original track goes through. The A section is simply changing chords above a rhythmic C bass. The B section recreates the high melody with a light accompaniment, and the C section goes all out with big bombastic strikes.

The first two pages or so are pretty straightforward to play, but there are a few quick jumps here and there that demand some practice. The last section can be pretty tricky to get right due to the big jumps and big chords. Take it slow and make sure you can hit the right notes before speeding it up a bit, and feel free to adjust the left hand pattern a bit if it's too difficult.

"Let's Go Home" (Pokemon RSE) - arranged by Latios212!

Sheet music: https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/browse/series/Pokemon#sheet3045



It's a pretty cheesy and simple piano solo! Lat's arrangement doesn't add anything too flashy to the small-world feel of the original track, and this makes for a pretty fun read on a tiring day. I also hear that this plays at the game where you're shipped with either May or Brendan, which is pretty cool.

"Intro / Title Screen" (Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue/Red Rescue Team) - arranged by Bespinben

Sheet music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teJTmPCNS9g





Here’s the opening for the original Mystery Dungeon games - pretty much the same for DX :D It’s an energetic albeit short two-part track that immediately introduces the main melodic theme and sets the stage for the game and the series - creating a sound of adventure, mystery, and excitement.

Bespinben’s sheet here distills down the piece to its core elements and presents them in a manner that is very pianistic. There are a couple of big jumps here and there but overall this sheet is pretty simple and straightforward - and a joy to sight-read and play!

"Windmill Hut" (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time( - arranged by Seb![/u]

Sheet music: https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/browse/series/TheLegendofZelda#sheet1457


(warning: 10 hours version but dang that thumbnail is great)

I...really don't need to say more, it's Song of Storms. A really fun piece to play, a really fun piece to play while pretending to be slightly tipsy, a really fun piece to play forever because that's definitely how long it seems to go on for while you're solving the actual Windmill Hut puzzle. But all-around, it's just such a fun and whimsical melody, and Seb's sheet is about as clean as it gets. Wonderful for any occasion and improvisation! ^^
