Yuzo Koshiro

Yuzo Koshiro is something of a legend with gamers of a certain age. He’s responsible for some of the most iconic soundtracks of the 16-bit era, composing the tunes that made games like Revenge of Shinobi, Streets of Rage and ActRaiser so memorable.

During his glittering career he’s worked on loads of other games too of course, but his connection with the Mega Drive has arguably made him a figure of affection for many players; those same players will no doubt be over the moon to learn that he’s involved with the Mega Drive Mini, a micro-console that’s launching this September.

The stars really are aligning with this new console, and it should hopefully put to rest all of the bad memories we have of those ghastly Sega clones that have been clogging up store shelves for the past decade. With M2 handling the emulation and the one and only Yuzo Koshiro doing the menu music, this could be a real rival to the NES and SNES Classic Editions.
