"Steep Hill" is a K.K. Slider song in the Animal Crossing series. It first appears in Doubutsu no Mori e+.

"Steep Hill" has a melancholic tone, and it is based on Shōwa-era Japanese folk rock, known as kayōkyoku. The song's melody is similar to that of "'Ichigohakusho' o Mōichido",[nb 6] a Japanese folk rock song by the group BangBang.

Album cover[edit]

Album cover in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The album cover for "Steep Hill" features K.K. Slider with hair sitting in a windowsill, while Daisy and Maelle in school uniforms talk to each other outside. In New Leaf, the cover has no borders, while in New Horizons an orange border on the left and beige borders on the top and bottom are added; they read "ニ段坂" (Nidanzaka), the song's title in Japanese. In the art on the song's Doubutsu no Mori e+ e-Reader card, Megumi and Ketchup take the place of Daisy and Maelle, respectively.
