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

Emily McMillan

After graduating with a master's in teaching, I realized that I wasn't quite ready to leave video games and their soundtracks behind. I've been keeping in touch with the video game music world from Texas by working with VGMO and updating my own YouTube cover channel. 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. Along with teaching and writing, I also enjoy listening to film scores, classical music, and playing pretty much any RPG you can name.
