File:Yoko Shimomura 8610.jpg

Yoko Shimomura has been composing in the video game music industry since the late 1980s. Early on, she was a recurring composer for Capcom (and was part of their in-house jazz band Alph Lyla), and then for Squaresoft, and more recently a freelance composer. More recently, she is probably best known for composing the music for the Kingdom Hearts series, as well as Mario RPG music, starting with Super Mario RPG (while at Squaresoft) and the entire Mario & Luigi series since.

Contrary to popular belief, Shimomura did not compose Mega Man 6.
