I'm surprised at how little I care about this. I guess we'll see. His Star Fox 64 work is exceptional, but he never matched that quality in any of his other scores. I don't remember being very impressed with Wind Waker either, the other Zelda game he worked on.

I got crap for saying this in another thread, but Nintendo's sound team really sucks now, and I'm not sure why. I used to like them. Koji Kondo, Hirokazu Tanaka, Soyo Oka, Akito Nakatsuka, Minako Hamano. All great artists. But ever since the Gamecube era started up, they have been stuck in 'casual cute' mode, and never recovered. Maybe it's pressure from upper management or something. Unless Wakai has something up his sleave (and this will be the proof we need to see whether or not he was a one-hit wonder), I don't think this score is going to be very good.

At the very least, it shouldn't be as bad as Twilight Princess.
