87: The Retro Sounds of Super Mario Maker 2

One of the not-so-obvious functions of the Mario Maker games is as history archive for the Super Mario series. The newly released Super Mario Maker 2 boasts a whole lot of music, much of which looks to the past for inspiration. This episode looks how the composers used music to bring Mario’s history into the present.

Listen to the first Mario Maker episode here. And listen to more Nintendo-themed episodes here.
