Shota Kageyama

Shota Kageyama (Japanese: 景山将太 Kageyama Shota) is a video game composer who did work on the soundtrack for Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Pokémon Black and White, Pokémon X and Y, and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. He is also known for his work in Luminous Arc and various Capcom games. Outside of Pokémon, he was featured as a part of the composition team in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U.

On January 1, 2014, Shota Kageyama announced on his Twitter that he had left Game Freak to work as an independent composer. He noted that he’s “graduating” from the company after having spent the past 6 and a half years there and is branching out to work with with his new company, Spica Musica. However, he still maintains good terms with Game Freak, later working with them on Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, with an open possibility of continuing to collaborate in the future.
