A sound investment
Penny’s Big Breakaway was revealed during the most recent Nintendo Direct, much to the excitement of 3D platformer fans. The project, developed by Evening Star Studio of Sonic Mania fame, is looking to offer everything fans of the genre adore, plus a whole host of new features and mechanics as well.
Evening Star Studio has already proven they know how to handle amazing 2D platforming, and with Penny’s Big Breakaway, they’re looking to show that they can do the same in the 3D arena. Of course, a bumping soundtrack is incredibly important to that experience as well, and in an interview with Nintendo Life, Evening Star reveals that they’ll be once again teaming with Tee Lopes to get the job done.
It’s got a cool soundtrack led by Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania, Streets of Rage 4, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge) again. It’s very different from Sonic Mania; it’s got some very vintage synth stuff, but mixed with a turn-of-the-millennium Fatboy Slim remix vibe, and it’s a lot of fun.
I really tried to push the team in different directions to achieve a new sound that hadn’t been done before. Even Hunter and I have contributed a couple of tracks, and Sean Bialo (Donut Dodo) has done a couple of tracks too. I’m very excited to demo the soundtrack in the coming months.
