Excellent ! I have long known his name (but not all of them !) but I've never tried before to look at a photo of him ! What a shame...:(
So great musics for Phantasy Star 1 (for me the musics of Phantasy Star II are the "weakest ones" of the whole principal serie, but that is only my opinion ! ;) ) so nice work an hope he'll continue ! :)

Awesome! I was not at all familiar with him, really cool to put a face to the name. I love the soundtracks of the first two Phantasy Star games, probably the best in the series, in my opinion.

But yeah, I need to play some of the other games he composed for.

Space Harrier had awesome music. Hell, so did a lot of the early Genesis stuff (and, yes, the Master System, too.)

Fun thing to do: Get yourself a Master System emulator. Set it to Japanese mode, and "power it on" without a ROM loaded. Enjoy the music.

Indeed Space Harrier had such awesome musics (but the game is very far from excellent ;) ).

SNORB : I didn't know about this trick about the Master System emulator ! Thanks for the tip : I'll try to test it soon !

I also found out recently he worked on Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II. That game was hard! Still haven't made 1st in a race, but yet I find myself still playing it.

Yes, he worked on this game too ! And it was a hard one (at the time I wasn't really fond of car games !;) )
