Nintendo revela versões iniciais da letra americana da estelar música tema do game Super Mario Odyssey

Parte integral e imediatamente associada ao espírito brincalhão, aventureiro, explorador e libertário do premiado game Super Mario Odyssey (NS), a música de abertura Jump Up, Superstar! passou por uma série de revisões em sua versão americana até chegar a um ponto onde tanto a letra como a melodia agradassem ao rígido padrão de qualidade Nintendo e combinassem com o tema principal do jogo: viagens.

A Nintendo inicialmente ficou insatisfeita com as muitas referências a games antigos do Mario presentes na letra, pois desejava que ela apelasse a todos os tipos de jogadores, mesmo os que não conhecem tão bem o universo de seu mascote. A ordem na verdade era a de que a música "tinha de ser um número divertido e bombástico de jazz que você pode apreciar mesmo que não tenha conexão ou familiaridade com Mario, mas ela te recompensaria ainda mais, com pequenas alusões ao universo Mario, se você fosse um fã de Mario."

A intenção era a de que a melodia fosse também bem cativante, daquelas que ficam gravadas facilmente na cabeça, e que você sente vontade de cantar e dançar o dia todo. Após a conclusão e aprovação do primeiro verso da melodia, o time musical terminou seus dois versos restantes em cerca de três semanas, graças principalmente à maravilhosa demo (ver vídeo no final do post) criada por Rob T., líder do time de localização desta música. Conheça as três versões iniciais descartadas de Jump Up, Superstar! e também a versão final logo abaixo, e caso queira relembrar o clipe da canção final, clique aqui.

Primeira Versão

The symbol of a voyage, let’s start to raise the sails
A tailwind dances at our backs
Flip a coin, the goddess who’ll tell our fortune
Blows a kiss
Let’s sing our love as brightly as
All the lights in all the world
Then jump! (JUMP SE)
And grab! (COIN SE)
Say yeah!!! (yeah!!!)
Let’s dream together
Love together
If we walk with our eyes to the sky
Once all our tears have fallen
We’ll get a 1UP
Let’s all
Jump up high and high five
Tap and dance
I’m a superstar lighting up the world
Switching you on to happiness
So, let’s dance the Odyssey!!!
(Chorus)
Odyssey, ya see! etc.


Segunda Versão

Oh we’re ta- / -king a trip / Here we go it’s time to raise the sails
The wind is dancing at our backs
Flip a coin / Make a wish / and the goddess might just blow a kiss
Boy I’d say your fortune’s looking good
Le-et your love shine as bright as the lights in this whole wide wonderful world
Jump with me / (grab) coins with me / Oh yeah!
Together we can live our dreams /
This love is what it seems /
So keep your chin up as you trek alone/
And when the tears they start to fall /
There’ll be no need to fear ‘cause /
I’ll be your 1UP girl
So let’s all jump up super high / and high five in the sky /
There’s no power-up like da-a-ncing /
You know that I’m the superstar /
No one else can take you this far /
I’m flipping the switch / are you ready for this /
Oh, let’s do the Odyssey
Odyssey, ya see!

Terceira Versão

This time we’re / off the rails / Here we go let’s raise our sails
It’s freedom like you never knew
Grab a coin / Make a wish / and the goddess might just blow a kiss
You could say my hat is off to you.
We-e can zoom all the way to the moon from this great wide wacky world
Jump with me / (grab) coins with me / Oh yeah!
Together we can live our dreams /
This love is what it seems /
So keep your chin up as you trek alone/
And when we’re underground in gloom, /
Don’t fear, don’t shed a tear, ’cause /
I’ll be your 1UP shroom
So let’s all jump up super high / high up in the sky /
There’s no power-up like da-a-ncing /
You know that you’re my superstar /
No one else can take me this far /
I’m flipping the switch / are you ready for this /
Oh, let’s do the Odyssey
Odyssey, ya see!


Versão final

Here we go, off the rails
Don't you know it's time to raise our sails
It's freedom like you never knew

Don't need bags, or a pass
Say the word I'll be there in a flash
You could say my hat is off to you

Oh we can zoom
All the way to the moon
From this great wide wacky world
Jump with me, grab coins with me
Oh yeah!

It's time to jump up in the air (Jump up in the air)
Jump up, don't be scared (Jump up, don't be scared)
Jump up and your cares will soar away
And if the dark clouds start to swirl (Dark clouds start to swirl)
Don't fear, don't shed a tear, 'cause
I'll be your 1UP girl

So let's all jump up super high (Jump up super high)
High up in the sky (High up in the sky)
There's no power-up like dancing
You know that you're my superstar (You're my superstar)
No one else can take me this far
I'm flipping the switch
Get ready for this
Oh, let's do the odyssey

Odyssey, ya see! (x7)
Odyssey, odyssey!

Spin the wheel, take a chance
Every journey starts a new romance
A new world's calling out to you

Take a turn, off the path
Find a new addition to the cast
You know that any captain needs a crew

Take it in stride
As you move side to side
They're just different points of view
Jump with me, grab coins with me
Oh yeah!

Come on and jump up in the air (Jump up in the air)
Jump without a care (Jump without a care)
Jump up 'cause you know that I'll be there
And if you find you're short on joy (Find you're short on joy)
Don't fret, just don't forget that
You're still our 1UP boy

So go on straighten up your cap (Straighten up your cap)
Let your toes begin to tap (Toes begin to tap)
This rhythm is a power 'shroom
Don't forget you're the superstar (You're the superstar)
No one else can make it this far
Put a comb through that 'stache
Now you've got panache
Oh, let's do the odyssey!

It's time to jump up in the air (Jump up in the air)
Jump up, don't be scared (Jump up, don't be scared)
Jump up and your cares will soar away
And if the dark clouds start to swirl (Dark clouds start to swirl)
Don't fear, don't shed a tear, 'cause
I'll be your 1UP girl

Now listen all you boys and girls (All you boys and girls)
All around the world (All around the world)
Don't be afraid to get up and move
You know that we're all superstars (We're all superstars)
We're the ones who've made it this far
Put a smile on that face
There's no time to waste
Oh, let's do the odyssey!
