Format NSF

In the original NES version, the song is actually broken up into three different NSF songs (tracks 1, 2, and 3 in the file) that are played at the beginning of the game if you wait at the title screen for a few seconds (the Japanese version boots directly to the story). The first part of the song describes the recovery of the forgotten Albatross plan, the second explains Generalissimo Killt's rise to power, and the third chronicles Super Joe's assault and disappearance. The recording has been combined into a single track and matches the delays of the game. In the soundtrack album only the second and third parts of the prologue are heard.
