After a slip-up on Nintendo’s end, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope was officially unveiled during Ubisoft’s E3 presentation.

Being a sequel, a number of key figures have returned, and this includes the former Rare composer Grant Kirkhope. He was previously responsible for the first game’s soundtrack, and this time around he was even given the opportunity to score the trailers for the sequel.

Here’s what he had to say about the reveal of Sparks of Hope during a special Games Industry E3 podcast:

“I’m so pleased to get it out there, you know, it’s not a secret anymore. Yes, it’s great to get it out there… I got to score both the trailers, the gameplay and the cinematic trailers that a lot of the time you don’t get to do that…yeah, I feel I’m part of the launch which is nice.”

In a follow-up tweet, Grant revealed one of the more special moments working on the game, which was being able to do an arrangement of the Comet Observatory theme from the Super Mario Galaxy series:

Oh, and there’s apparently a neat reference to a Banjo-Tooie track in the Sparks of Hope trailer:
