All your favorite VGM podcasters are doing a series called “Masters of VGM”, where we do episodes devoted to our favorite video game composers. For my fourth and final entry into this series, I’m talking all about the incomparable Yuzo Koshiro, composer for Streets of Rage 1 and 2, Etrian Odyssey, Ys I and II, the Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune series, and dozens of other games.
