Shoji Meguro Atlus

Shoji Meguro has left Atlus and is now an independent composer, the company has announced. The move officially went into effect as of the end of September.

Despite leaving the studio, it looks like Atlus still hopes to work with Meguro in the future. Specifics about any future collaborations have not been provided.

Famitsu recently spoke with a pair of composers involved with Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth’s music. Shoji Meguro, composer of the Persona series and Atsushi Kitajo, composer of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, chatted with the Japanese magazine.

The two told Famitsu:

“While it does have the essence of Etrian Odyssey in it, once you get to play it for yourself, you’ll immediately know that it’s a new title of the Persona series. Even on the sound-side of things, essentially, it doesn’t stray away from the Persona series, and we were even able to bring out a unique Persona Q sound to it.” – Kitajo

“The scenario has some comical parts, but the planners had a few difficult requests like wanting us to give a taste of an occult-like BGM.” – Meguro

“In the first place, Persona Q has a side that is meant for the Atlus brand’s 25th anniversary festival, and in addition to this, the desire to make it a ‘complete title’ in the Persona series, has become very strong. In that regard, the sound direction will be changing, so we’ve also had some consultation done within the development team.” – Kitajo
