BT writes: When I called Danny Baranowsky the “Nobuo Uematsu of indie games” I was prepared for a lot of reactions–anger, confusion, polite disagreement. What I wasn’t prepared for was an alternate suggestion for the “the new Uematsu.” As it turns out, I’m not the only one who thinks that Atlus is the new Square Enix, as long-time Megami Tensei composer Shoji Meguro has quietly worked his way up into the hearts of JRPG fans everywhere, producing some of the most beloved soundtracks of the last decade.
It would be easy enough to spotlight his work in Persona 3 and 4. I’ve already written plenty about the scores to those universally acclaimed titles, due in no small part to the way in which their soundtracks support the thematic framework of each narrative. However, I’ve decided to spotlight a lesser known Persona entry for both your education and my amusement. I present to you: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona for the PSP.
