Batman: The Brave and the Bold (Wii)
|Batman: The Brave and the Bold|
I AM THE GOD DAMN BATMAN.
Leftover Placeholder Tracks
Present in the ISO are two tracks titled batman_song.ogg and song_driving.ogg. While neither is used in-game, that is not the only interesting detail about these two files. When opened in a media player, it is found that they are, in fact, songs from the anime series Cowboy Bebop.
The former song is "Spy" from Cowboy Bebop OST 2 - Vitaminless, while the latter is "Rush" from Cowboy Bebop OST 1 - Cowboy Bebop.
Jake "Virt" Kaufman, the game's composer, had this to say on the subject:
"During early development, before I came on site, the Wii team was using the song "Spy", from the anime Cowboy Bebop, as a temp track. It was the only music in the game for something like 8 months. Even though it’s an awesome song from one of the best soundtracks of all time, everyone had grown pretty tired of hearing it day in and day out."
While "Rush" is not mentioned, it is clear that it was also used as a placeholder during development.
Note that this OGG is 6-channeled and is likely unable to work with the Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. Opera, however, does not have this issue.
Someone screaming "Batman!" This clip is also used near the end of mus_channeltest.
A really basic city ambiance.
