Mahito Yokota is best known for his oft-bombastic orchestral soundtracks for various Nintendo games, such as Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. His work from before his career with Nintendo is less well-known, and he was mostly a sound director rather than a composer. His most famous work from before Nintendo is Dynasty Warriors 4's soundtrack, but that's only because that game is from a well-known series. Yokota himself only ever became worth mentioning alongside greats such as Koji Kondo when he composed the music for Super Mario Galaxy, and that soundtrack stands on its own.
