Thanks to an anonymous person online, the entire soundtrack to Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze has been released onto the internet! And so, we’ve been uploading some of the songs to our Youtube channel, including some of the game’s boss music and action level tunes! So keep reading to hear some of them for yourself…
Well, this is certainly unexpected news. Apparently, Resident Evil composer Mamoru Samuragochi has admitted that someone else has been writing his music for the last ten years or so. So I guess he’s basically the Japanese composer version of Milli Vanilli or whoever they were, someone who takes responsibility for the works of others and has been getting a ton of undue credit in recent years.
Straight from the Japanese official site too, and without any sound effects at all! Best of all, they’re very much up to the same quality as the music from the SNES trilogy, and are every bit as catchy as likes of Stickerbrush Symphony and Jungle Hijinx! So keep reading to hear these latest musical masterpieces for yourself…
So if you want to own the music ‘legitimately’, Nintendo have now provided a way for you to do so (assuming you’re willing to pay the 11 dollars needed to buy it). Here’s the link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/pokemon-firered-pokemon-leafgreen/id771135133 On the other hand… it’s not like the music for this game is particularly difficult to find elsewhere. And so I have to wonder whether there’s even much point to this whole soundtrack deal. Ah well, decent Nintendo digital ‘merchandise’ for anyone who wants it, and a bunch of neat music now more easily available for your iPod or music player if you’re too lazy to find it elsewhere.
As you likely know, Pokemon X and Y got a soundtrack earlier this month. And as you might also know, Super Mario 3D World is getting an amazing 70+ track one in the near future too. But most Nintendo games aren’t so lucky. And so here are five modern Nintendo games I think should also get a soundtrack sometime in the near future.
With the official Japanese and European sites for the game launched just a few hours ago, Nintendo has finally posted some good quality music from the game online. And wow, the Hyrule overworld theme in this one sounds absolutely amazing! Have a listen to it in the full post!
In Japan at least, where a 77 track set of soundtrack CDs will be buyable by Club Nintendo members in the region. But what does it look like? What do I think of this whole deal? Find out below in the full length post…
As of just a few hours ago, Nintendo and Game Freak have uploaded a nice promo video for the Pokemon X and Y soundtrack to their official Youtube channel. They’ve also posted some new details about what songs are included. So what is it like? What’s included? Find out in the full article!
No Super Mario World ones, but some of the quotes from the article give the distinct impression that we might see remixed music from another unexpected 2D Mario game instead. Namely, the American version of Super Mario Bros 2 with its Subcon setting and distinct story. Read some more interesting quotes from the article in the full post!
As many people probably already know, Super Mario 3D World is going to have live recorded music similar to the Galaxy series, complete with tunes played by an orchestra. But there’s one difference! Yeah, instead of the traditional orchestral themes of Galaxy 1 or the more ‘majestic’ tunes of Galaxy 2, 3D World will feature live recorded Big Band style music, the kind of jazz/party style stuff that’s generally not been recorded live for the series.
