Music and extras

Literally hundreds of musical tracks are waiting to be enjoyed on the battlefield. The Metroid series has a healthy representation of twelve tracks in the game - see below for details to access them.

Metroid music

Smash Bros. Brawl plays host to some terrific remixes and arrangements of Metroid music from throughout the series. These tracks can be heard in the Metroid-themed stages Norfair, Frigate Orpheon and Brinstar, along with several stages aboard the Isle of Ancients in the Subspace Emissary. A number of the tracks are already available by default, while some need to be unlocked. See below for details to unlock the set.

If you enjoy these tunes, drop by the SSBB music page for downloadable MP3 versions.

Snake's secret messages

While not directly music-related, a number of hidden Metal Gear-themed audio tracks can be heard in the game. With Solid Snake unlocked, secret messages can be heard as he converses with his Metal Gear buddies to learn about the other fighter's abilities. Play as Snake and brawl on the Shadow Moses Island stage, with your opponents as anyone you want to glean intel from.

During the game, very lightly tap the down taunt and watch as Snake radios in (you may need to do this only in training mode, as the comunication will be interrupted if Snake's hit). Both Samus and Zero Suit Samus feature some interesting intel (and odd choices for words), try it out!
