Composer Go Shiina leaves Bandai Namco

Known for God Eater, Tales, Tekken, and more.

Go Shiina

Composer Go Shiina, whose real name is Masaru Shiina, has left Bandai Namco.

Shiina has composed a number of popular Bandai Namco titles, including the entire God Eater series, several Tales series titles (Legendia, Radiant Mythology, Radiant Mythology 2, VS., Radiant Mythology 3, and Zestiria), and Tekken 5 and Tekken 6.

In a tweet, Shiina said that while he enjoyed his 20 years and was supported by everyone at Bandai Namco, which he calls a “good company,” it is time for a new start. He will, however, still compose for the new God Eater title to be revealed at the God Eater Orchestra Live concert on October 7.
