N64 Blog recently had the opportunity to interview Dan Hess, who composed and arranged both Pilotwings 64 music and sound. During the extensive and interesting interview Hess recounted that a Nintendo of Japan executive visited the Pilotwings 64 developers with a Nintendo 64 chained to his arm to show them the incredible Super Mario 64. You can read the full interview here.
“One of my fondest memories is of a Nintendo executive flying from Japan, literally with a briefcase chained to his arm, to show our team they’re developing Super Mario 64 game. We were all blown away and it served as motivation for us to make Pilotwings 64 as good as we possibly could.”
