Renowned composers from around the globe are now available to work on games both big and small

Scarlet Moon Productions today announced the launch of Scarlet Moon Artists, an artist group dedicated to bringing renowned composers from around the globe to a game near you. Bridging the gap between East and West, the composers come from Japan, Korea, and the United States, and have collectively worked on titles as diverse as Final FantasySecret of Mana, and Ragnarok Online to OtomediusTekken Tag Tournament, and Transformers: The Movie (1986).

Each of the nine artists wants to work with developers both big and small in order to bring their signature soundscapes to a global audience. Scarlet Moon Artists gives developers access to some of the biggest names game music has to offer, breaking down language and logistical barriers that would have previously made reaching and working with these artists difficult.

The roster includes (in alphabetical order):

Vince DiCola & Kenny Meriedeth (Rocky IVSaturday Morning RPGTransformers: The Movie)
Shinji Hosoe (Mega Man Network TransmissionRidge Racer series, Tekken Tag Tournament 2)
Hiroki Kikuta (KoudelkaSecret of ManaSoul Calibur V)
Osamu Kubota (BeatmaniaGranado Espada)
Justin Lassen (Herbert the Misanthropic FlyOtomedius ExcllentSynaethesia)
Goomin Nam (Bar Oasis series, Monarch: Heroes of a New AgeTalesWeaver)
Dale North (Dragon Fantasy Book II, OverClocked ReMix contributions, Silent Horror)
Jinbae Park (PangYa PortableRagnarok OnlineRidge Racer 7)
Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XIIGradius VValkyria Chronicles series)

"Having been a fan of some of these artists since my early childhood, you can imagine my excitement at the prospect of finding them new and exciting projects to contribute to," comments Scarlet Moon Productions founder Jayson Napolitano. "In that sense, Scarlet Moon Artists serves the established fan-bases of each of these artists in addition to the artists themselves, as I know many game music enthusiasts, myself included, would love to hear more of their music in games!"

Scarlet Moon Artists has launched an a website with streaming music samples from each artist. There's also a contact form where interested parties can inquire about a specific composer's availability for work on a project:

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!
