Kōji Nakagawa is a Japanese composer and sound designer who works for Namco. He was usually credited as Kojimaro (浩二麿) in which Maro roughly translates to "You". While he was initially responsible for composing for consoles games and in some cases arcade games, he is primarily involved with composing songs for THE iDOLM@STER nowadays.

Audio Development


Nakagawa started off using a sound driver by Shinya Yamada, which was based off of Nintendo's Kankichi-kun. For Super Famista 4, Super Famista 5, and Super Family Gerende, Koji used Namco's second driver programmed by Junko Ozawa, which was not based on Kankichi-kun.
