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 second entry into this series, we’ll listen to the greatest hits of Shoji Meguro. This episode also serves as a de facto mixtape for the Persona games, since Meguro composed most of the music for the series.
Special thanks for this episode goes out to:
