Hamauzu’s start with Square Enix came by creating a small handful of tracks (along with other composers) for Front Mission: Gun Hazard (1996) and Tobal No. 1 (1996). Later collaborations include Final Fantasy X (2001) (with Nobuo Uematsu [植松伸夫] and Junya Nakano [仲野順也]) and Musashi: Samurai Legend (2005) (with Junya Nakano, and Takayuki Iwai & Yuki Iwai [岩井由紀] of Wavelink Zeal).
His solo works include Chocobo’s Mysterious Dungeon (1997), SaGa Frontier 2 (1999), UNLIMITED: SaGa (2002), and Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII (2006). Hamauzu provided the entire score of Final Fantasy XIII in 2009, and returned for its sequel, XIII-2 in 2011. Hamauzu has also produced arranged albums for a few of his works, including Chocobo’s Mysterious Dungeon ~Coi Vanni Gialli~ and Piano Pieces “SF2” Rhapsody on a Theme of SaGa Frontier 2. He also prepared the piano arrangements for Final Fantasy X Piano Collections and Yasunori Mitsuda (光田康典)’s Sailing to the World Piano Score. From SaGa Frontier 2 onward, Hamauzu has primarily worked closely with synthesizer operator Ryo Yamazaki (山崎良).
In addition to his solo and video game compositions, he is also co-leader of the band IMERUAT with vocalist Mina Sakai.
