Mahito Yokota is a celebrated video game composer specialized in orchestra scores. After working on some titles with Koei, he joined Nintendo EAD Tokyo, where he has worked primarly on 3D Mario titles such as Super Mario Galaxy, its sequel and Super Mario 3D World, as well as other titles like Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. He also worked on adapting Koji Kondo's score for the 3DS remakes of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

History

Before working with Nintendo EAD Tokyo, Yokota had worked at Koei on a variety of their projects. His first title with Nintendo was Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat, whose sound was rated an 8.5 by IGN who praised the "appropriate" jungle tunes. He later worked on the brilliant teaser song for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess which aired during the game's E3 2005 trailer (which can be viewed here).

Upon release, Super Mario Galaxy's soundtrack has been regarded by many as featuring the best songs in any video game, let alone any Mario title, and won various awards in 2007 by a multitude of outlets. The fantastic upbeat and epic scores graced their own soundtrack, albeit it was only available through Nintendo's Club Nintendo service. Yokota later worked once again with Kondo and the Mario Galaxy orchestra to create the soundtrack for Super Mario Galaxy 2. He has continued to compose great tracks to Mario games as well help with The Legend of Zelda remakes on the 3DS.
