Darn, I was hoping for Mitsuda. Oh well Shimomura is almost as good. She also did the music for Mario RPG and various mana games.

WELL WHY DIDN'T SOMEBODY SAY SO EARLIER!

Fantastic.

.........who?


I just said she's Kingdom Hearts' composer :/

What the heck are Kingdom Hearts?

Yea, what is Kingdom of Hearts? Is that an RTS/Solitaire type game?

Outside of Kingdom Hearts, Yoko did the Mario & Luigi games as well as Heroes of Mana for the DS. I really enjoyed the musical score for all of those games so i have no problems at all with her composing for Xenoblade.

Familiar names working on upcoming games always makes me feel a little easier about the overall potential quality of the title.



How technical is your game?

So much for Yasunori Mitsuda.... Seriously, they should have never let him go back on Xenosaga II for....bleh, Yuki Kajura. Now its like every game they do, they have to find someone else.

Not saying Yoko Shimomura is bad. She has actually done some damn fine work (such as Super Mario RPG and even the original Street Fighter II OST). But they had something amazing going with Yasunori Mitsuda and they never should have given him up.



Six upcoming games you should look into:

 

  

Well at least Mitsuda did Arc Rise Fantasia's music so it's not like fans of his won't hear from him anytime soon.

Now I'm not even sure Xenoblade will have memorable music. I don't remember a single track from the Kingdom Hearts series. The music in the website and trailer were amazing though, maybe she'll pull through. I still wish it was Mitsuda though. Then I would have been sure that Xenoblade would have a AAA soundtrack.

Parasite Eve, Super Mario RPG. Does that help?



"And yet, I've realized that maybe living a "decent" life means you won't ever have a "good" life."

 

Least we know the music will be great.

No, it doesn't.



Well she did compose this great song for Kingdom Hearts 2
