Ypx here—back for another weekly Soundtrack Saturday. We’re getting back up to speed around here, putting out new content, new artwork and just yesterday we had our first Featured Friday in…a long time. My weekly feature is still recurring though, and this is another edition:
Released in 1996, Wave Race was an early Nintendo 64 game that showed off the power of the console most notably in its water physics and depiction of a simultaneously transparent and reflective surface. At one point the game featured boats with transformational powers rather than jet skis. The music was handled by Kazumi Totaka, who was also the composer for Mario Paint, Link’s Awakening, the original Animal Crossing, and several other games I’ve covered in the past.
