St. Paul, Minn. —
Composer Jesper Kyd, fresh off the release of Assassin's Creed Revelations, visited MPR headquarters on November 18, 2011.
We had the chance to speak about his involvement with the Assassin's Creed games since their inception. Jesper also spoke about his work on Borderlands and the Hitman series.
Just before his visit, the trailer for Assassin's Creed 2 unveiled at E3 in 2009 was voted third best video game trailer of all time. Usually, music for game and movie trailers are written by different composers, but Jesper scored this one, and scored it well.
Watch video or listen to the audio from Top Score's evening with Jesper Kyd. Audio also available on iTunes.
