The Music of Mario Kart 8

A few weeks ago, I managed to snag a Wii U Mario Kart 8 bundle in an early black friday deal. I can already tell you, it was worth it! I’ve been completely hooked on Mario Kart 8, and I’m still impressed with just how good the game looks and plays. But it doesn’t just look good, it has some excellent music as well!

I stumbled across some videos on Youtube from Nintendo showing footage of the live recordings used in the game. I for one, am really happy to see Nintendo focusing on live recorded music again, instead of synthesizing their otherwise excellent music.
