Banjo-Kazooie composer is doing Castle of Illusion's OST

Grant Kirkhope lends his talents to the Genesis classic remake

The Bear meets The Mouse! Errr... sorta. Okay, not really. But wouldn't that be something?

The Castle of Illusion HD remake will now be even more spectacular thanks to the knowledge that former Rare composer Grant Kirkhope is on music duty. The man has certainly been in the public eye a lot lately, appearing on a special episode of Game Grumps and releasing truncated versions of his Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie soundtracks on Bandcamp. He's also working on the upcoming Ninja Gaiden spin-off Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. Busy, busy!

Kirkhope's pretty much done with this latest project, as he announced on Twitter last week that he only had one track left. Does this news pump anyone up even more for Castle of Illusion's release this summer on PS3, 360, and PC?
