Shoji Meguro, the composer best known for his work on the Persona series, has announced that he had parted ways with Atlus to work on new projects.

Announcing the news with a statement on Twitter, he explained that he resigned from the company at the end of September in order to focus more on developing indie games.

Mr Meguro also stated that he still has what he calls a “good relationship with Atlus” and that he will continue to compose while he works on his new game projects with Kondasha Game Creators Lab, where he was selected as a finalist in their latest round of recruitment.

Mr Meguro originally began working with Atlus back in 1995 composing the music for Revelations: Persona. In 2003, he was named as the lead composer for Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne and was the Game Director for the PSP remakes of Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sun and Eternal Punishment. Away from the Persona series, Mr Meguro also provided music for 2011’s Catherine and 2015’s Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker.
