The presence of the amiable yellow avian known as the chocobo has been an indispensable part of the Final Fantasy series since the second title. In Final Fantasy V, the chocobo outgrew its role as a mere means of transportation, becoming a supporting character by the name of Boco.
The mythical bird became the main protagonist for the game Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon on the PlayStation. Along the way, the chocobo theme song composed by Nobuo Uematsu has been treated to practically every remix style imaginable.
Now that the character has its own Nintendo series, Final Fantasy Fables, the responsibility of scoring the music of the chocobo has passed to Joe Down Studio of Sapporo, Hokkaido.
