After he got over his fear of messing up some of the most beloved game music of all time, Grant got to work creating a sound that combines classic Nintendo themes, the craziness of Ubisoft's Rabbids, and his own unique style. He was able to use a live orchestra for lots of the music and he made the most of it, even including a bit of over-the-top opera for one of the bosses!
Grant says writing music for a Mario game was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and he never got over the fact that he was writing for one of the most beloved game characters of all time.
