The mighty Hip Tanaka has returned, courtesy of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.  The Smash Bros. Dojo site recently updated with a special remix of the themes from Donkey Kong.

One of Tanaka's first responsibilities at Nintendo was in composing the music for Donkey Kong.  He went on to compose for a variety of Nintendo titles, including Wrecking Crew, Metroid, Super Mario Land, Mother, and Dr. Mario.  Tanaka left Nintendo in 1998 and went to work at Creatures, composing music for the Pokemon series and games; he became president of of Creatures in 2000.  This remix represents the first work Tanaka has done "directly" for Nintendo in several years, although he has been connected to the company via Creatures and Pokemon.
