Description

Composer: Tomoko Sasaki (All other Tracks), Masafumi Ogata (Track 19)
Naofumi Hataya (Tracks 26, 27, 30)

Completely re-ripped soundtrack. Needed because all old MD/Gen VGM sets logged with MAME have an incorrectly pitched DAC due to MAME's incorrect emulation of it. Metadata meant to match "MEGA DRIVE LAST ACTION HEROS" (WM-0654~6) as much as possible, with some improvements. Any errors from previous versions of this pack were corrected.

Late Mega Drive/Genesis platformer from a Japanese dev team at Sega (Not developed Sonic Team, though there was mutual staff, they would not reform as Sonic Team until NiGHTS into Dreams...). Had many bizarre international changes, including the plot. The original plot of the game follows Ristar, who was summoned by the people of planet Neer via prayer to his mother, their Star Goddess Oratu to rescue the Valdi System from the evil Kaiser, "Greedy". SEGA USA decided to throw out the part were Ristar was the destined deity and throw in some plot about saving his dad, the REAL hero or whatever.

The boss intro (named "Boss Jingle" per WM-0654~6) is included as it's own track in my set. It was going to be merged with all of "Intension" like in the Official OST, but I was unable to recreate it without error. Looking back at it I'm glad it turned out like that. I used the OOST's version of the Neous/Sonata 1-1 Pre-Song as a basis because I felt there was less repetition than in the original Project2612 VGM set, same goes for having a separate version of "Du-Di-Da" instead of having the jingle alone. I also took a similar approach for the bonus stage theme, merging to tracks like in the OOST. I did however, for both songs, change when the transitions happen to be more on beat (when compared to the OOST).

Ahh, I understand now, thanks for the clarification.

As of May 13, this rip provides perhaps the crispiest quality of this OST yet.
At the same time, I do wish it retained elements of previous rips, such as Planet Sonata's tracks being separate, or the version of "Du Di Da" that contained the intro, but ah well.
Still a great rip of an equally great OST.

Our boy Ristar survived the Segapocolypce. That’s a good thing, right?

Only proves this masterpiece’s criminal obscurity.

wasn't that a stupid copyright troll? some random youtuber? hope we get sonic back on here someday, i'd be willing to contribute to that

"Ice Scream" is one of the best winter themes I've ever heard in a video game. So beautifully composed and nostalgic sounding...

Guys! How many times do I have to tell people that Ristar was not made by Sonic Team? He was actually made by Sega of Japan!

Ristar has been one of those like 90's OSTs that hit hard, like Plok and Kid Chameleon, so it's pretty good.

This soundtrack is amazing! My favorite is the boss battle, Crazy Kings. If you haven't played the game, you should definitely check it out!

Lemme join n on the love 4 this game. It was a blast 2 play bak n the day(& deceptively hard,@ times)& the Composer was very talented who crafted a jazzy or beautiful soundtrack when needed. 1 of the levels-Sonata had a music theme. U had 2 bring a music egg 2 the keeper bird each time. It would cheer him up then u could advance & the level music would even change. Turned out u were adding bits to the happy song til it was completed by levels' end. Game was unique 4 it's time and it was made by the Sonic team which makes sense, given Ristar's appearance. Thx khinsider!

I've played and loved this game! No soundtrack or game has come close to awesomeness as this! Greedy Game: best final boss theme, Crazy Kings: best boss theme etc. I wish these guys did the music for Sonic 1 and 2.

The soundtrack of this game is lovely. Also the game is great (and I still enjoy playing it).
However, did anyone note that the track 24 is missing? (Just thought that maybe I should mention that.)

Well, gotta go and listen to some awesome music! ;D

This is definitely one of the best soundtracks on the Sega Genesis. Don't overlook it! It's just as strong as any of the Sonic tracks, and it's got some real nice boss themes too. Check out Greedy Game and tell me that ain't a great tune for final boss fight!
