Kazumi Totaka, a sound designer and musician at Nintendo, is responsible for one of the sweetest traditions the company has in its arsenal: Totaka's Song, a ditty he first composed in 1992 and which has featured in every game he's worked on since.

While the song has appeared in many games, it's perhaps best-known for its inclusion in Animal Crossing, in particular the rendition coffee-shop crooner K. K. Slider plays if you request it.

So it's nice to see it's returned in the latest game in the series, New Leaf, as you can see in the video above.
