Yoshi's Woolly World composer retweeting negative comments about the Yoshi's Crafted World soundtrack (UPDATE)

Sing us a sad song

Tomoya Tomita was the driving force behind the soundtrack to Yoshi's Woolly World, a soundtrack I absolutely adore. There were so many fantastic tracks in that game, and Tomita no-doubt should be praised for his work. Many others agree, and a large portion of those fans were very upset to learn that Tomita wasn't returning for Yoshi's Crafted World.

The soundtrack in Yoshi's Crafted World has been met with a ton of criticism, with fans calling it stale, repetitive, and flat-out boring. They've been taking to Twitter to express their distaste for the soundtrack, and none other than Tomoya Tomita has taken to retweeting those sentiments. Seems like Tomita would have loved to be part of Yoshi's Crafted World, and he's not shy about sharing the voices of those who either dislike the Crafted World soundtrack, or wish he was involved.

Check out Tomita's Twitter here (thanks Willis!)

UPDATE - There has been some discussion as to whether Mr. Tomita is retweeting things without knowing what they actually say. That would still put part of the blame on Tomita of course, but it would be a shame if he didn't know he was retweeting negative info.

On top of that, Mr. Tomita has shared the following statement on the music of Yoshi's Crafted World and Yoshi's Wooly World. It's a bit of broken English, so it's hard to know the tone he's taking, or the meaning he's trying to get across. If anything, it makes it seem like he was happy to find that people enjoyed the soundtrack more in Woolly World than Crafted World.

Hey, I have not denied YCW music. Because I have never heard of it. I was just happy to say that they were better at YWW.

EDGE #332 - review scores

Three great scores

I have to say, I didn't expect Yoshi's Crafted World to get such a high score from EDGE. They're notoriously rough with their scores. That said, I definitely think Yoshi deserves the praise!
