Here to start off our month-long countdown to the #1 favorite NES soundtrack is Kirby’s Adventure! Released in 1993, it is often recognized as one of the best titles of the system’s dying years. In a more recent review for the Wii Virtual Console release, IGN gave Kirby’s Adventure a 10 out of 10 for sound, declaring it as “one of the very best aural achievements” for the system. While I think there are better and more impressive examples of NES sound production out there, Kirby’s Adventure boasts a very slick soundtrack full of bright and fun melodies.
As a bit of a shameless plug here, shizz and good-evil friend Xoc has arranged each and every track from Kirby’s Adventure, which is available for download here. What’s Pink and Sucks? is a personal favorite of mine, and couldn’t be left unmentioned.
Music composed by Hirokazu Ando and Jun Ishikawa.
