Do you all think the hourly music will return in New Horizons? I watched the treehouse play the game and they mentioned the sound design and how you can hear the leaves blowing in the wind, etc. What I couldn't hear is if there was music playing.

If music does return for the hours, do you hope they are all new tunes? Or do you think they went away with this concept?

What that reminded me a bit of is the background music in AC:NL's Main Street, specifically the way it initially starts as a mournful little jingle but changes and gets more instruments and layers as shops move in. So perhaps they're doing something similar and there will be no or only minimal music at the beginning, but it will get more interesting as you develop your island. We only saw gameplay from very early on in the game, after all.

It's tough to say -- I know somewhere near end of the 23-minute video, the in-game clock said "10:45am", so there was no hour change.

I hope they're new tunes. I know some folks want classic songs to return, but some of the WW/CF songs are still burned into my brain, and I found some of NL's songs annoying (especially 11am). I'd be down for some all-new music, personally.

I had to turn my volume up very loud and hold my ear to the speaker but there is definitely music playing and it was definitely new music. to me it kind of sounds like a cross between NL's and WW/CF's style, but of course that's only the 10am tune so it's hard to say what the other 23 hours will be like. I think either the sound was wonky in the stream, or sound mixing is one of the things they're still working on.

OR maybe they'll let us do sound mixing ourselves and we can turn the music and sound effect volumes up and down

Ah good to know! I may go back later and do the same. At least to just try and hear something. The trailer theme song reminded me a lot of a mix between New Leaf and the GC version. So it has me excited!

Haha, sound mixing is a possibility but I don't know why I feel like AC wouldn't do that.

The stream was real-time, just in Pacific Time since they were in California.

I loved the trailer theme too. Nothing will ever beat AC:GC's title theme for me but I think that's as much nostalgia as it is the song being good.

I'm guessing they built in a feature to turn down the hourly music so that it didn't cover up the sounds they were trying to feature. I don't think they'll do it either but I'm guessing they already put something in for the e3 presentation so why not let users do the same?

I think the music was turned down for the sake of the demo.

It kinda sounded like the music gets quieter as they got closer to the beach, and louder as they walked away.

Too bad they spent a long time by the beach...

Im sure there will be new hourly music.  IT could still be being made and thus not in the demo… I think we will see this game develop a lot over the months

^I agree, it's possible that the music hasn't been finalized yet so they had it turned down in the background.

Hourly music or we revolt!
