about

Yuzo Koshiro, one of the most influential chiptune game composers of all time, is teaming up with Limited Run Games to create a new arranged soundtrack for The Scheme, a 2D side-scrolling action game originally released for the PC-88 in Japan in 1988 and one of the earliest games Koshiro composed for.

Long regarded as one of his most respected hidden gems, Koshiro revisits The Scheme for the first time in over three decades, applying the latest compositional techniques and technology while staying true to the iconic, punchy sound the original game is known for. Koshiro revisits all 19 tracks, mixing authentic PC-88 audio with modern synths to produce a 21st-century revival.

For the album cover art, Koshiro and Limited Run have teamed up with renowned Japanese illustrator Ken Sugimori, known for his work on the Pokémon franchise, to create a new and vibrant visual piece that captures the game’s dark, cavernous worlds.
