The first Sonic Adventure had a lot of strange turns. This is the game that added a shooting robot going through an existential crisis and a simpleton cat fisherman trying to rescue his best friend (who is also a frog), all surrounding an ancient water monster. And somehow, in the midst of all that, Tails managed to sandboard down a desert slope, the aptly named Sand Hill. This somewhat out of nowhere section (and its music) is making a comeback though, in the much more fitting Team Sonic Racing.

 

 
The new arrangement keeps a lot of what made the original track distinct. The vocal samples, for one, as well as the driving bassline and synths, all work for the newly christened Sand Road.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
