Composer Shoji Meguro Goes Freelance; Will Still Work on Future Atlus Projects

Publisher and developer Atlus recently released a blog statement revealing that composer Shoji Meguro will be going freelance. This means that he is not strictly tied to only producing musical content for Atlus.

However, Atlus also stated that they are continuing to work with Meguro on future projects, so he will not be entirely absent from forthcoming titles the company develops. So perhaps Shin Megami Tensei and Persona will still have Meguro’s work, but maybe to far lesser extents.

Good luck to Shoji Meguro on his work-related endeavors, and we here at Noisy Pixel hope he continues to succeed as strongly as he always has, if not more so.

You can read the Atlus blog statement announcing this news on their official Japan website.

Shin Megami Tensei V takes place after a murder occurs in modern-day Tokyo that blocks the game’s protagonist from walking home. The detour may have been due to fate or another force, but he finds himself buried and unconscious.

When he awakens, he finds himself in a new Tokyo, a wasteland after the apocalypse known as Da’at. He quickly finds out that he’s not alone, as demons are closing in on his location. However, a mighty being known as a Nahobino appears and saves him. With this power, the protagonist can venture through Da’at and hopefully get some answers about what happened to his former home.

Shin Megami Tensei V is releasing for Nintendo Switch on November 12, 2021.
