While the Mario and Sonic rivalry isn’t quite as surprising now we’ve had over a decade of spin-off games and Super Smash Bros. putting the two universes together, there’s still something charming about the idea. It seems like famed video game composer Yuzo Koshiro agrees, putting together a cute little remix that gives Super Mario Bros.’s World 1-1 theme the Genesis soundfont, alongside a few Sonic sound effects.
 


 
Yuzo Koshiro has been iconic in the industry for years, composing for the likes of Streets of Rage, Etrian Odyssey, and Kid Icarus: Uprising. Recently, he’s been making waves with some Super Smash Bros. Ultimate remixes and a potential Streets of Rage 4 return.

Sadly, it’s pretty unlikely he’ll be scoring a full Mario and Sonic cross-over anytime soon, but at least for now we have a fun jam to listen to.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
