Nob Shioda

Nobuyuki Shioda is a Japanese composer and sound designer. He joined KID in 1989, shortly after the company was created, and just after the development of Burai Fighter. There, he scored the music to a vast majority of their games during his 10 years with the company. He was mentored by Norio Nakagata on how to create game music, and the two collaborated on Burai Fighter. His work really came into prominence with the game Summer Carnival '92: Recca, which received huge praise for its soundtrack.

He also arranged Juri Goto's Game Boy Color music for the games he worked on, as Goto couldn't write Game Boy music.

Audio Development

Game Boy/NES

To create music for the NES, Shioda wrote the music in Music Macro Language on a PC-9801 computer. Shioda used a sound driver by Tadashi Fukuzawa of Chunsoft, albeit unknowingly. He used the same method when he used Kunihito Hiramatsu's sound driver.

Shioda used an identical approach for his Game Boy music as well, also using a sound driver by Hiramatsu.


Note: Though some Japanese sites credit Shioda with Burai Fighter (NES), Shioda said he did not work on the game, and that the music was solely done by Norio Nakagata. Therefore, it is not listed in his gameography.
