Talking game music with composer Kinuyo Yamashita at MAGfest XI

"While most of MAGfest XI entailed me nerding out during videogame music cover bands, meeting new people and attending some fantastic panels, I did have the honor of interviewing veteran game composer Kinuyo Yamashita of Castlevania and Mega Man X3 fame.

Kinuyo and I chatted about a bunch of things, including how big videogame music has gotten over the years, her influences and style for some of her more well-known compositions and the official answer regarding that “Neon Tiger” track from Mega Man X3.

Special thanks goes to Maho Azuma for translating and MAGfest’s Nick Marinelli for coordinating the interview."

- Patrick Kulikowski (Castlevania, Culture, Industry, Kinuyo Yamashita, Mega Man X3, Retro)
