Yuzo Koshiro leads composer team for Monster Boy

Monster Boy and the Wizard of Booze was announced in February as the spiritual successor of Sega’s Wonder Boy / Monster World series of platformers. The game’s developers announced today that Yuzo Koshiro of Ys and Streets of Rage fame will contribute to the soundtrack.


The soundtrack will reportedly diverge from the chiptune origins of the series in favour of CD-quality music. Koshiro apparently penned the soundtrack with four other composers, including ‘two of his friends’. The other composers will be revealed at a later date.

About the Author

I've contributed to websites related to game audio since 2002. In this time, I've reviewed over a thousand albums and interviewed hundreds of musicians across the world. As the founder and webmaster of VGMO -Video Game Music Online-, I hope to create a cutting-edge, journalistic resource for all those soundtrack enthusiasts out there. In the process, I would love to further cultivate my passion for music, writing, and generally building things. Please enjoy the site and don't hesitate to say hello!
