Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon Trailer Easter Egg — Mario Strikers Charged Reference
I immediately called this as we were live blogging the 3DS presentation yesterday. Go check the live blog out if you don’t believe me! Quite a few fans on YouTube caught this easter egg too, which proves how excellent Next Level Games’ music is. Anyway, notice the elevator music at 1:42 of the Luigi’s Mansion trailer…sounds very familiar, right? Yes, the elevator music is an arrangement of Mario Strikers Charged’s “Pause Menu Music”. Pretty logical as the developer of Luigi’s Mansion is also Next Level Games, but it looks like the same composers will be featured, too.
Anyway, go over on YouTube and catch up on the soundtrack of Mario Strikers Charged. It’s a brilliant rock-oriented soundtrack with plenty of experimentation with techno, country, jazz, and some funk thrown in for good measure. Here’s one of my favorites, The Classroom. If this played in my class, I would’ve never slept in.
