Biography

木村明美 (Akemi Kimura) who’s real name is: 田中直人 (Naoto Tanaka) is a former Capcom employee who has served as a video game music composer since 1996.
He is best known for his work on the Mega Man X and Phoenix Wright series. He usually employs synth-based techno rock in his compositions, but has also utilized keyboard elements.

Tanaka’s work with Capcom began with him acting as sound director for the Rockman Complete Works series, where he created a few arrangements of songs from Mega Man 3 and the majority of Mega Man 6. He later acted as main composer for Mega Man X5.

In 2001, Tanaka started going by his alias, 木村明美 (Akemi Kimura), for his remaining works at Capcom. This includes Mega Man X6 through X8 (contributing through Value Wave for the latter two) and the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney trilogy.

Tanaka has since left the company entirely and joined PlatinumGames, where he has worked on titles such as MadWorld, Bayonetta and Max Anarchy.
