Update [Thu 1st Dec, 2022 09:45 GMT]: After sharing a little teaser with us yesterday, David Wise, Grant Kirkhope and Kev Bayliss have now published the full music video for 'A Video Game Christmas', which you can view above.

Original Story [Thu 24th Nov, 2022 10:30 GMT]: If you're a keen fan of the UK studio Rare, then chances are you'll recognise the names David Wise, Grant Kirkhope and Kev Bayliss.

Between them, they've worked on titles such as Killer Instinct, Donkey Kong Country, GoldenEye 64, Diddy Kong Racing and Banjo Kazooie – and they've now joined forces to create a Christmas single called 'A Video Game Christmas'.

The trio have recently formed a band called Retro-Fusion, and they're planning to release the festive song on December 1st, 2022.

Wise and Kirkhope were two of Rare's most esteemed composers (the former was actually the company's only musician for a few years), while Bayliss – who is best known as the designer of the Battletoads and the creator of Diddy Konghas enjoyed his own career in music over the years.
