Super Mario 3D World will feature 'a lot' of live-recorded music

If you were drained by the New Super Mario Bros. series' abundant re-use of tracks and underwhelming synthesizers, know that Super Mario 3D World's soundtrack may feel a little more inspired. In an interview with Destructoid, 3D World Lead Composer Mahito Yokota explained that "a lot" of the game's tracks will be live recordings.

"We're arranging the music with a big-band feel, taking advantage of a full horn section with trumpets and saxophones," Yokota said.

A horn section and stringed instruments flowed through this recent trailer, but hearing that the greater soundtrack will feature plenty of recordings is a bit of a relief. Considering some of the Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack's highlights, it'd be nice if 3D World's tunes are also lively enough to remain stuck in the minds of players years after they've finished the game.
