Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze producer Kensuke Tanabe has explained how the legendary David Wise returned to compose the soundtrack for the Wii U platformer. Tanabe says that he used to work with David Wise and has been in contact with him ever since. Wise wasn’t available to do the soundtrack for the original Donkey Kong Country Returns, but thankfully he became available when development of Tropical Freeze started. Tanabe also revealed that the music in Tropical Freeze will all be original.

“I worked with David, many, many years ago, and have stayed in contact ever since. He’s actually a friend of mine. So, as we approached this particular project, he became available.”

“So I picked up the phone and said ‘Hey David! You have some time? Would you like to help us out with Tropical Freeze?’ And he jumped at the chance. It was a coincidence that he was available at the time… he wasn’t prior [for Donkey Kong Country Returns] and we couldn’t be happier.”



  1. Rejoice gamers, xboxdone DRM squashed. Microsoft caught with their tails between their legs. The three way race is on again. Thank you Nintendo and Sony for being true to gamers and letting Microsoft know, pride cometh before a fall. Now how Nintendo and Sony react shall cause games to be more than just the FPS nonsense that clattered the PS3 and xbox360 this generation. Nintendo on the rise, news just keeps getting better.


    • Well i’m not sold with this drm no more from Micro$oft. The damaged is done; and them with their arrogance could go to hell. :p WiiU and PS4, for me.
      What i hope is that Nintendo announce something new for WiiU in the next Nintendo Direct.


    • Portal 2, Metal Gear Solid 4, Batman: Arkham Asylum & City, Skyrim, Uncharted trilogy, Dishonored, Ni No Kuni, Deus Ex: Human Revoltution, GTA 4, LA Noire, Max Payne 3, Red Dead Redemption, inFamous 1 and 2, BioShock series, Telltale The Walking Dead, tons of innovative indie games. All launched this gen on PS3 or Xbox 360. Mind doing a count and telling me how many of them are “FPS nonsense”?


  2. I was playing this shit almost 20 years ago, and it was twice as good. We never needed Donkey Kong Country 5. This game can fuck off!


  3. Jesus Christ this guys are a mess… Want to start an adventure? read the comments above, grab some popcorn and enjoy the show.


  4. sickr, please delete unrelated or off-topic comments because is getting annoying with all these nonsense.

    about the news, It’s good to have him back at least for this game. I just wish for the rest of the Rare people to come together for this.


      • That was a project we made as seventh graders. It was supposed to be a spoof and Hitler and turn him into a goofball that gets beat up by an American soldier at a bar. It was based off of a friends joke that he couldn’t finish. Thanks for checking out our videos though!


  5. I’m a bit annoyed that the Xbots had some fight in them left by announcing the deletion of their DRM program…

    However if people really thinks that they totally abandoned it they are really retarded as americans spy on people no matter what they say in the end…


  6. Fuck you all Sony,Microsoft and Nintendo “fans”! Why you are always fighting about which system is the “best”. You are all pathetic shits still after all these years! Man you dont know how much i would like to have new SEGA Dreamcast 2, i would so enjoy playin with it, it would also be my only console but i cant because it will never exist. Why you shitfaces cant be happy that your favorite is still in this business? What if instead of fightin on internet pretending to be some kind of messiah you would be playin with your favorite console. End of story!
