FAIRFAX, VA--Metroid. Mega Man. The Legend of Zelda. Street Fighter. Streets of Rage. Kirby. Castlevania. God of War. Monkey Island. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

What do these legendary gaming franchises have in common? They're all featured on the brand new album by OverClocked ReMix and the Bad Dudes, Heroes vs. Villains, available for free at http://hvv.ocremix.org!

OverClocked ReMix today released its 22nd album, Heroes vs. Villains. Started as a challenge by game music arrangement collective The Bad Dudes, the album consists of twenty diverse arrangements featuring classic characters battling it out through their anthemic themes, with OC ReMix representing the heroes while the Bad Dudes represented the villains. Heroes vs. Villains is available for free download at http://hvv.ocremix.org.

This album was produced to help promote video game music, was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by the game franchises' respective companies; all original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

Twenty-four artists collaborated on epic musical match-ups including:

  • Samus vs. Mother Brain
  • Mega Man vs. Dr. Wily
  • Link vs. Ganon
  • Ryu vs. Sagat
  • Axel vs. Mr. X
  • Kirby vs. King Dedede
  • Simon Belmont vs. Dracula
  • Kratos vs. Zeus
  • Guybrush Threepwood vs. LeChuck
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vs. Shredder.

"Even though the project started as The Bad Dudes vs. OverClocked ReMix, the end result is that we're all just doing what we love, and the VGM community - at its core - is still strong and working together," said directors Kunal Majmudar, Christopher "Mazedude" Getman, and Mustin of the Bad Dudes. "If you're reading this while listening to the album and still have a face, congratulations. But don't freak out when your face starts melting. We warned you," they concluded.

About OverClocked ReMix

Founded in 1999, OverClocked ReMix is an organization dedicated to the appreciation and promotion of video game music as an art form. Its primary focus is ocremix.org, a website featuring thousands of free fan arrangements, information on game music and composers, resources for aspiring artists, and a thriving community of video game music fans.

About the Bad Dudes

In September of 2006, Mustin assembled some of the best and brightest that had contributed to the various albums released by OneUp Studios, to form a new clique that would collectively be referred to as the Bad Dudes. Mind you, this has nothing to do with the arcade/NES title Bad Dudes, merely a kickass name that applies to a group of kickass musicians. To date they have released several free EPs, and in 2009 received critical acclaim for their first official album, CHRONOTORIOUS, a collection of arrangements from the SNES classic Chrono Trigger.
