Oddly enough, a Super Mario and Rabbids crossover RPG has been rumored to be in development for the Nintendo Switch and Grant Kirkhope is reported to compose the game’s music. This information comes from Laura Kate Dale, the founder and Editor-In-Chief of Let’s Play Video Games. Laura revealed this info in a couple of tweets yesterday. “I know I was taking a break from leaks but screw it, I’m calling this. Grant Kirkhope is composer on the Switch Mario Rabbids RPG,” one tweet read before it was taken down. Shortly after Laura put up another one saying, “I have two sources on Grant Kirkhope composing music for Switch Mario Rabbids RPG.”
Grant Kirkhope has scored the soundtracks to some of the most notable titles for the Nintendo 64 which include Banjo-Kazooie, Goldeneye 007, and Perfect Dark to name a few and he also composed the music for the upcoming Yooka-Laylee. The Super Mario x Rabbids RPG rumor first surfaced last month and has yet to be confirmed by either Nintendo or Ubisoft, but we will see if the rumor is true when the Nintendo Switch presentation airs next month.
