Mega Man Composer Manami Matsumae Featured in 'Lock On' Journal

There’s no doubt that Mega Man helped define the 8-bit generation, and this iconic status is due in part to games' soundtracks. Mohammed Taher, Director of Brave Wave Music, sat down with Manami Matsumae, the composer of Mega Man 1’s soundtrack, to revisit those chiptune classics in the latest issue of Lock On. 

In addition to Matsumae's interview, Lock On Volume 005 also includes this really great piece by Nuri Durr (above). The aim was to capture the nostalgia of the NES, and reinvigorate readers' fondness for the era. I mean, just look at those crazy kids. Sitting a little too close to the TV and all. Memories.

Lock On Volume 005 is currently available to pre-order from Lost in Cult. You can find the softcover edition here and the limited, premium hardcover edition here.

  1. I wasn't alive for this era of gaming but it certainly seemed like a special time.
