Ah ah. don’t read anything down here yet. Just play the video and listen. Listen to that music!
Since the revelation of David Wise coming back to compose for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, together with Kenji Yamato from the first DKCR game and the Metroid Prime series, we really haven’t heard much in the form of music. While we many, including us, did play a bit of Tropical Freeze, they were in noisy venues. Not the best of places to really hear what anything has to offer in the form of music (unless the booths had headphones). But now we can hear the music better thanks to gameplay uploaded by Gamespot. First we have the savannah music, which sounds very much inspired by the likes of The Lion King.
The next, after the break, is the boss battle music.
