He has successfully fused both of his worlds together, having worked on musical arrangements for Nintendo Switch titles such as ๐๐จ๐จ๐ฆ๐ž๐ซ๐š๐ง๐ ๐…๐ฎ, ๐•๐ข๐ญ๐š๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐‚๐จ๐ง๐ง๐ž๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง and the animated ๐’๐ญ๐ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ง๐”๐ง๐ข๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž: ๐“๐ก๐ž๐Œ๐จ๐ฏ๐ข๐ž.
