Those outside of Japan have now officially got their hands on the new Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS, as the release date was October 3. For many, it has been a long wait of youtube videos and returning to Super Smash Bros. Melee, but now the wait is over and the action can begin. Those that have managed to put down the 3DS long enough to read this can go download the free tribute album Harmony of Heroes, to compliment the action as a drastically long playlist.
To celebrate the completion of the album, Arecibo Radio streamed the entire album with input from the artists that contributed to the project. During that time, a separate chat room opened up to give listeners an opportunity to discuss the tracks and how they felt about them (at the time of writing this such events continue).
From the website it is possible to find and download tracks for specific series and characters or download the entire soundtrack; all 101 tracks. In addition to that, the website is loaded with artwork made specifically for the project. The artwork explores different themes and styles of creation, leading to a number of unique and touching moments.
