Fortunately Creator/{{Taito}} didn't make the same mistake, and kept the full-length track as-is when it was crossed over to ''VideoGame/GrooveCoaster''.

The song's melancholy vocals are also sure to strike a chord with players, even for those who aren't privy to ''Deemo'''s storyline.

The electric guitar-and-violin duo serves to remind players that this is indeed a song from a fighting game franchise. ''Guilty Gear'''s [[AwesomeMusic/GuiltyGear own Awesome Music page]] flat out calls this one "Creator/DaisukeIshiwatari's masterpiece", which should already say a lot.
