The Hideki Naganuma countdown just keeps rolling along with unreleased music from Super Monkey Ball

#5 "VENDOR POP" by skankfunk from Yakuza 5

What's old is new, and what's monkey is gangster

I was shocked, yet not very surprised to learn that Naganuma has produced several VG tracks under a pseudonym. Luckily, the lid is off, at least for those paying attention. It would appear skankfunk just might be the eponymous Hideki Naganuma.

How an unused track in an early 3DS game rolled along like the titular Super Monkey Ball until finding itself lodged deep within the Japanese mafia simulator Yakuza 5 is completely beyond me. All I know, is that it works.

Now I must ask, what other game series do you wish Naganuma would take a stab at? Gears of War? Legend of Zelda? Let us know!
