The music of Nintendo games make them truly remarkable and memorable. To show our love of the music, every Friday we share a selection of tracks from various Nintendo titles, new and old.

It’s the third NintyBeats of 2016, and in honour of this fact we’ll be featuring three pieces this week! That’s the same as usual NintyBeats, you say? No you don’t, nobody reads these…

I have never really cared for the Kirby series overall, but it has had some great music from the very start. King Dedede’s theme music is one of the most iconic (& best!) pieces in the entire Kirby saga.

I’ve mentioned Motoi Sakuraba’s distinctive GBA music in a past NintyBeats, and this week I’ve chosen to highlight it again. The GBA had some wonderful music, and pieces like this make me hope the NX is seriously underpowered, so we get more music like it.

This is perfect music for what was essentially a Donkey Kong reboot. It starts off with the classic Donkey Kong theme, and then flawlessly transitions into the brilliant new version. This theme is essential in making DKC feel like a respectful continuation of Donkey Kong.

So that wraps up another week’s NintyBeats! I hope you enjoyed the choices this time.

If you would like to have a certain piece featured next week, please post it in the comments!
