The Super Mario Bros. Movie leaps from the screen to vinyl, CD, cassette & digital releases
Iam8bit has partnered with Nintendo, Illumination, and Universal Pictures to release The Super Mario Bros. Movie’s soundtrack in physical form. The soundtrack is currently available digitally from Back Lot Music as of April 7th. The movie is currently being shown in theaters.
The Super Mario game franchise’s soundtrack is available for pre-order in three physical formats: vinyl records, CDs, and cassette tapes. The products were designed with iam8bit’s attention to detail.
The Super Mario game series and its music are popular in pop-culture. Koji Kondo, a Nintendo composer, worked with composer Brian Tyler to create new music for The Super Mario Bros. Movie soundtrack. The music pays tribute to the 8-bit era and beyond. Tyler has worked on other shows such as Yellowstone, 1883, and 1923.
Tyler expressed his familiarity with the music from the Mario games and his appreciation for Koji Kondo’s compositions. He enjoyed the opportunity to create new music for the film while incorporating elements of the original game music. Tyler’s score reflects the grandeur and emotional complexity of the movie while staying true to the music’s origins.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie soundtrack by iam8bit includes all 36 tracks from the film’s soundtrack. This includes the complete version of Bowser’s piano ballad “peaches” and incredible all-new Mario art.
