Hitoshi Sakimoto

A Music Composer for Basiscape and (formerly) Square

Hitoshi Sakimoto

Born in 1969, Hitoshi Sakimoto began volunteering to create video game music in 1987 and soon began working as a freelance composer in 1989. Seven years later, Sakimoto joined Square Co., Ltd.. and continued to compose until 2000, when, after completing his work on the highly-acclaimed Vagrant Story, he became a freelance composer. He went on to establish Basiscape, an independent provider of audio and music for video games and other media.

As the founder of Basiscape Co., Ltd, Sakimoto has since been penning regularly for a variety of games as well as some commissions for various independent companies. His compositions include Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Final Fantasy XII, among others.

Yasumi Matsuno Kickstarter project has less than 3 days remaining

Unsung Story is the latest project from Yasumi Matsuno who is collaborating with Playdek to create a mobile tactical RPG title set in a classic Matsuno world. The Kickstarter project is asking for $600,000 to create a PC/Mac version of the game. Since the project's announcement it has been revealed that Akihiko Yoshida will be creating the character artwork for the title and Hitoshi Sakimoto will be composing the music (previously was only going to be involved in a stretch goal). The project has only hit $508,195 as of the writing of this article, so if you want to see this sort of title hit your PC/Mac you should pledge right away! The first stretch goal at $750,000 will see Alexander O. Smith and Joseph Reeder join the project to translate the title. Further stretch goals include additional platforms, features and voice acting. Check it out!

Two Guild01 titles trademarked in the United States

Level-5 has filed trademarks for Yasumi Matsuno's Crimson Shroud and Goichi Suda's Liberation Maiden - both titles from their Nintendo 3DS compilation title Guild011. Crimson Shroud is Matsuno's first directed title since falling ill due to stress while helming Final Fantasy XII. Read on
