Wise composed some great underwater themes

Nintendo announced Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze during today's E3 Nintendo Direct presentation. It's the direct sequel to Donkey Kong Country Returns but also sits in with the entire series which dates back to the Super Nintendo era when Donkey Kong Country emerged.

David Wise composed all three of the original trilogy of titles, which were developed by Rare, but did not come back for the Wii adaptation - developed by Retro Studios. The Wii U iteration is also being developed by Retro Studios and this time the legendary composer is back to create the soundtrack.

Considering how good the soundtracks were to all three SNES Donkey Kong Country titles this is fantastic news and the upcoming release should now have even more of a nostalgic feel to it.
