Of course, violins are used in making modern game music, but I didn’t know how good the instrument was at bringing to life retro game scores.


YouTuber Teppei Okada has been playing game scores on the violin, such as F-Zero.

Super Mario Bros.

The Legend of Zelda.

What makes his covers so cool is that he also does the various in-game sound effects. He’s not just playing the music, but bringing to life the experience of playing the game on his violin.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.
