Aloft Studio’s indie game Hazelnut Bastille is undeniably inspired by Super Nintendo and GBA classics, essentially being a mix of Zelda and Secret of Mana elements. Fittingly, a composer from the latter has joined the project, contributing a few tracks to the game.

Kotaku were contacted by the game’s artist who confirmed the composer in question, Hiroki Kikuta, will be supporting main composer Shannon Mason. He had this to say in a press release:

“Hazelnut Bastille is a wonderful looking retro-style game! I’m looking forward to being a part of it and hope we can create music that lives up to the rest of the game and everyone’s expectations!”

Hazelnut Bastille is still some ways away, with the PC and Switch release scheduled for late 2019. Given all the assets released so far, however, it looks like the wait will be worth it!

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
