Penkin and Uematsu to team up on Defender’s Quest II

Level Up Labs’ Defender’s Quest II: Mist of Ruin is the sequel to a hit tower defense RPG. In a major boost for the indie title, it announced today that Nobuo Uematsu will be responsible for the main theme.


Creative Intelligence Arts’ Kevin Penkin will create the rest of the music for this title. As he discusses in our interview with him, Penkin made his professional debut as a composer on the original game and the now-established artist will presumably create an even bigger and better score for the sequel.

Kevin Penkin and Nobuo Uematsu have previously worked together on the otomate games NORN9 and Jyuzaengi: Engetsu Sangokuden, where Uematsu created the vocal theme and Penkin created the rest of the music. Defender’s Quest II: Mist of Ruin will be first of their collaborations to be released internationally.
