The Mario Kart 8 Soundtrack Is Absolutely Amazing (56k)

#1 Posted by charizard1605 (61010 posts) -

This is the first soundtrack in the series that was recorded with full, live orchestra and instrumentation, and it shows. The Mario Kart 8 soundtrack is absolutely stunning, and is just another way Nintendo went all out with this game.

The ones that I absolutely recommend listening to are:

  • Mario Kart 8 Main Theme
  • Rainbow Road 64
  • DK Jungle
  • Cloudtop Cruise
  • Moo Moo Meadows
  • Yoshi Valley
  • Mount Wario
  • Bowser's Castle
  • Electrodome
  • Online Lobby

Of course, because there are simply so many tracks, you might have different favorites, so feel free to listen to all of them and figure out which one you like best lol.

The tradition of great Nintendo OSTs continues.

Great work TC, much much better than the generic "Another 1080p PS4, 720p/30 Xbone" threads that populate gs regularly.

DAT MOO MOO MEADOWS REMIX!

Very nice, another great addition to the series in terms of music. through I not a fan of the new Rainbow Road music (the N64 remix is nice however).

Just one of the many flawless things in this game.

Not as good as Xenoblade Chronicles, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Metroid: Other M (yes, I said it), Super Paper Mario, Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. But, It's certainly great.

Of course that's not gonna be the name. Zelda is not Mario.

Shy Guy Falls, Dolphin Shoals, Cloudtop Cruise (way too epic for a race track XD) are my favorites. Moo Moo Meadows is great too.

Always good stuff. Game is going to be incredible. Starting to get really excited for the game now that May has arrived.

Its all too much same!!!

Amazing soundtrack is when its MEMORABLE, but this soundtrack is not memorable at all.

Only Dry Dry Desert; Cheep Cheep Beach were good. Also, how many maps there going to be in Mario Kart 8?

Rainbow Road 64 is so well done...

@FreedomFreeLife: The usual number. 4 new cups, 4 retro cups. 4 tracks per cup = 32 tracks.

Then there are the battle mode remixed tracks.

That music is so bad lol. All of these threads on Mario Kart are starting to drive me mad. I'll probably wake up tomorrow and there will be two more on the first page.

32 tracks, thats a lot. At least Nintendo is giving full game without DLC rip off

Shy Guy Falls has this weird Zelda thing going on with it. I like it a lot. :)

The whole soundtrack is pretty good though, especially Dolphin Shoals, Shy Guy Falls, Rainbow Road, Cloudtop Cruise, Electrodrome... ah fuck it, they are all good haha.

No its horribly composed. i cant listen more..

It's beautiful. Don't lie.

I'm looking forward for this. I pre ordered it sometime ago and Nintendo has done well remixing the N64 Rainbow road track. It brings back so much memories. I'm getting the feeling that this is going to be the best Mario kart yet.
