Grant Kirkhope to score Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Grant Kirkhope has been announced as the composer for Ubisoft’s newly unveiled crossover game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.  While hints were leaked earlier this year about Mario + Rabbids, which combines the major Nintendo franchise with Ubisoft’s Raving Rabbids, this is the first official announcement of the game, and the first word we’ve heard about Kirkhope’s involvement.

Scoring a game in the Mario franchise is great news for Kirkhope, who is well-known for his scores to Donkey Kong 64Banjo-Kazooie, and most recently Yooka-Laylee. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be on the Nintendo Switch and is scheduled for release August 29.

Update: Although there is no word yet on a separate soundtrack release, those who purchase the GameStop-exclusive Collector’s Edition of the game will receive a physical CD copy of the soundtrack with their purchase.

About the Author

A native and lifelong Texan, I currently work in software education while contributing news, reviews, and interviews to VGMO on the side. I love the feeling that comes with the discovery of a brand new soundtrack, and always look forward to the next rekindling of that excitement.

Outside of VGMO, I enjoy playing piano, listening to classical music and film scores, and trying to go unnoticed in any stealth RPG I can find.
