Ex-Rare developer and talented composer Grant Kirkhope is taking on the upcoming Yooka-Laylee as his next musical challenge.
Kirkhope is well-known for his musical stylings found in the “D.K. Rap,” which was heard at the beginning of 1999’s Donkey Kong 64. A video posted by the Yooka-Laylee developers consists of Kirkhope teasing that his work on the upcoming spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie includes a new sick beat, although he doesn’t sell it very well.
The video’s description reveals that the new song will drop tomorrow, April 1st, at 7 a.m. PT. Fans should be wary, however, as this date puts the release on April Fools’ Day, when everyone should be skeptical of everything on the internet.
Yooka-Laylee launches April 11th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and fans can check out the game’s multiplayer reveal in the latest trailer.
