A Conversation With Secret of Mana's Composer

Last week, Square released an iPhone port of Secret of Mana -- not merely an emulated version of the game, but a reprogrammed adaptation with somewhat enhanced graphics. I'm still trying to determine how I feel about the remake, but it has two strong strikes against it: a fixed virtual D-pad, and -- perhaps more frustratingly -- badly implemented music that fades and restarts rather than looping properly. A minor detail, you say? Sure, in any other game, but this is Secret of Mana, a game that boasts one of the greatest soundtracks ever composed. Still, even the iPhone port's janky sound implementation can't diminish the majesty of the score, composed by Hiroki Kikuta. We recently had an opportunity to talk to Kikuta about his work on the Mana soundtrack, and the iPhone release seems like a perfect occasion to look back on his dense magnum opus.

I know a guy who met him at sakura con a few years ago. He put on a clinic and had a live midi rig there.
