63: Kirby’s Dream Land 3 in 30 Minutes

The music of the Kirby games is cheerful but not relentlessly so. In fact, Kirby’s swan song on the Super NES, Kirby’s Dream Land 3, has some slightly more down-tempo tracks. This quickie episode is just those: not a comprehensive look at this game, but a more moody take on Kirby, some of Jun Ishikawa’s best work and some of the best music we ever got from Nintendo’s 16-bit era.

Listen to all of Singing Mountain’s 30-minute Friday episodes here.

Also listen to Pixel Beat’s episode about the first Kirby’s Dreamland, which helped inspire me to do this episode.
