When the CD soundtrack album for Xbox Live Arcade shooter Omega Five was released, it included remixes by professional game composers from the sound studio Super Sweep. Yousuke Yasui, the composer of Mamoru Has Been Cursed, arranged the track "Glacial Fortress" for the album. In retrospect, the album represents a significant contribution to international recognition of Iwatsuki's music, a convincing demonstration that the compositions lend themselves to remixing.

Mattias Häggström Gerdt currently studies musicology at the University of Stockholm and is being taught by the renowned Swedish musician Mats Larsson Gothe. A long-time member of the game arrangement community OverClocked ReMix, he serves on the judges panel and arranges music as Another Soundscape. A professional game composer, his credits include arrangements on Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and original music for Artoon, The Perfect Match, Kaleidoscope and the forthcoming BlindEdge. He follows Yasui and Iwatsuki himself in arranging "Glacial Fortress" from Omega Five.

"The first time I came in contact with Iwatsuki's music was in Omega Five for Xbox Live Arcade," says Another Soundscape. "The music worked perfectly together with the beautiful shooting game. Iwatsuki's intricate melodies, sense of rhythm and harmony made me appreciate the game so much more. It's a wonderful combination of jazz fusion and electronic music, just as good on it's own as in the game. In just a few listens I was convinced this was some of the best video game music ever made."

"I played the game religiously, imported the soundtrack and tried to track down other music by Iwatsuki, impressed by his amazing catalogue. I even tried my hand at arranging a piece from Omega Five. However, it wasn't until Jeriaska approached me about a tribute album that I could focus my ideas to make something I felt would honor Hiroyuki Iwatsuki. My track is a personal "thank you" to a master of his craft, a truly creative man who created the soundtracks to many, many moments of joy."

Xbox live Arcade シューターの"オメガファイブ"のサントラには、サウンドスタジオのSuper Sweep所属のプロのゲーム作曲家達によるリミックスも収録されていた。『まもるクンは呪われてしまった!』の作曲家、安井洋介氏が"Glacial Fortress"をそのアルバム用にアレンジしている。今にして思えば、このアルバムは岩月氏の音楽をインターナショナルに知らしめるのに非常に重要な役目を果たしたと言える。そしてまたそれらの楽曲がリミックスの要素になり得るということを実証するものとなった。

Mattias Häggström Gerdt は現在ストックホルム大学で音楽学を専行中であり、スウェーデンの著名なミュージシャンMats Larsson Gotheに師事している。長期にわたるゲームアレンジコミュニティーのOverClocked Remixのメンバーでもあり、審査員としても名を連ね、Another Soudscadeとしてアレンジもやっている。プロのゲーム作曲家としては、クレジットに『ストリートファイター2ターボHD REMIX』やアートゥーン用のオリジナル曲、"The Perfect Match", "Kaleidoscope"や近刊予定の"BlindEdge"等がある。彼は今回, 安井氏と岩月氏のように、オメガファイブから"Glacial Fortress"をアレンジしている。 ”初めて岩月氏の音楽に触れたのはXbox Live Arcade用のオメガファイブでした”とAnother Soundscapeは語る。
