    • View Profile First of all, thank you for meeting with us and for your time. You have a lot of fans in Poland and I'm sure the readers of are eager to know the answers to the questions me and my colleague are going to ask.

The tendency for gamers to finance projects via the Kickstarter website started to positively affect game music composers as well. The spectacular success of the German composer Chris Huelsbeck (whose music was played during the Symphonic Shades concert, produced by Thomas Böcker) is more than likely to encourage many other artists to take part in such a project. Have you considered doing so?

Yasunori Mitsuda: I learned about Kickstarter just yesterday so I didn't really have much time to consider this, but naturally, I was excited to learn about it and we'll give it serious consideration and, perhaps, make an album. Maybe Kickstarter will be used to release a Chrono Cross album.

Well, I missed this. Thanks for posting it! I sure would love to see them release a Chrono Cross album funded via Kickstarter. Of course, it would get smashed into pieces by SE's legal team so fast your eyes would be flashing OCREMIX FF6 KICKSTARTER all over again.
Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.

I coulda *sworn* he WAS working on a fancy CC album.  Then he was "working on it", then we got radio silence for like 7 years.

Anyways, I love his work, godspeed to whatever he wants to do.

Support your local Dice (and pitch her ideas)!

Thank you very much for posting this;  Mitsuda has been my favorite for years; I had no idea he was working on Soul Sacrifice.  I'm not really interested in Kickstarter, but I might donate some if he does choose to start.
