Koji Kondo, Nintendo music composer, reveals that his work on Super Mario 64 was unfinished due to the limitations of the Nintendo 64. Today, he announced the fully realized version of the soundtrack.

“When Super Mario 64 was in development, the Nintendo 64 had not been finalized,” Kondo explains, “There were extra sound channels I had used that were cut when the final version of the system was given to us.”

“One particular channel would have directly affected gameplay,” continues Kondo, “The concept was finally utilized in the New Super Mario series. The enemies dancing to the music was my idea.”

“I am sure there are people who have found unused enemy animations in Super Mario 64,” he concludes, “This would have been a very integral part of the game. Please enjoy this preview of the fully realized version of the Super Mario 64 soundtrack.”

Jeff's nightmares are reality! What other musical innovations should NSMB have when they run out of Wahs? How about faster/slower music changing enemy speed? Do any games already do that?

In this thread, we are reminded that technological limitations can make games better.

At first I thought the video was real then by the second song I realized that it was a spoof. I'm dumb that way.

Sounds like WHA-step is a real thing now. Now I want a WHA-step version of the Baldur's Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal theme.

I don't know how to feel! I'm laughing out loud at this slide music, but I'm crying inside so, so hard.
