Alisia Dragoon with Fumihito Kasatani Interview – PA74

Pixelated Audio - Video Game Music podcast and Retro Gaming Alisia Dragoon Episode 74 Fumihito Kasatani Sega Genesis Mega Drive

Want a game that’s obscure but still has it all? Alisia Dragoon on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive is exactly the game you’re looking for. Fun game play, top-notch artwork, and some of the best music the system has to offer. It’s too bad the title didn’t get more recognition back in the day, however, 25 years later we can still fall in love with this work of art.

The composition was done by a small company called “Mecano Associates,” led by Fumihito Kasatani. And with the help of the team, we believe that they hit this soundtrack out of the park. Join us as we explore the audio and hear about the process from the sound producer, himself.

    Another fine episode! I bought this game back when it was initially released, and enjoyed it quite a bit. The music is definitely a standout in this game, and as much as I enjoyed it then, I really appreciate it more today. There are a lot of flourishes and special touches in the soundtrack that you guys brought out in the episode, that I totally missed the first time around.

    I was also very interested to listen to the interview with Kasatani. Great job, guys! Oh, and the box art to this game might be a good candidate for James’ articles on design focus. Just sayin’.

      Wow so you were one of the few that had this back in the day, very cool. It’s a surprisingly fun game. When I saw the box art after Bryan brought it to my attention…lets say I was not instantly hooked haha and I totally agree with you on the art article. I just might have to make some time to do it. Thanks for the push!
