Kazumi Totaka's Song

The building where Kazumi Totaka's Song can be heard

When you return to Spring Hill after your trip to the castle, a new building will have appeared near the ship. Go inside and wait. After the music has looped a few times, a strange song will play.

This is Kazumi Totaka's Song, a signature theme inserted into nearly every game that the music director has worked on. For a full list, check the Kazumi Totaka's Song Guide.

North West of Spring Hill is an island. Ride the ship there to find a large building. This is the headquarters of Nantendo, a company that invents things. The name is a pun on Nintendo.
