Galantis, Charli XCX collab on “We Are Born to Play”

The theme song for Japan’s Super Nintendo World.

Swedish electronic duo Galantis have teamed up with Charli XCX on “We Are Born to Play,” the theme song for Japan’s new theme park Super Nintendo World.

The song arrived yesterday alongside a vibrant and trippy video, which gives a sneak peek of the upcoming Super Mario-themed attraction. In it, Charli (sans Galantis) hangs out with familiar Nintendo characters like Toad, Princess Peach, Yoshi and the main man himself, Mario. “Alive a super kind of feeling / Jump on board the ride tonight / Baby we are born to play,” Charli belts over Galantis’ saccharine electropop production, which samples sounds from Nintendo games.

Super Nintendo World is set to open at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka this summer. Check out its theme song “We Are Born to Play” below:
