Junya Nakano (仲野順也), a composer who creates video game music, has worked for Square Enix for over five years.

His works include Treasure Conflix (1996), Another Mind (1998), and Dewprism a.k.a. Threads of Fate (1999). He has also collaborated on the soundtracks to Final Fantasy X (2001) (with Nobuo Uematsu and Masashi Hamauzu) and Musashi: Samurai Legend (2005) (with Masashi Hamauzu, and Takayuki Iwai & Yuki Iwai of Wavelink Zeal). Furthermore, he created a small handful of tracks (amidst other composers) for Front Mission: Gun Hazard (1996) and Tobal No. 1 (1996).

Nakano was reported to have left Square Enix after his work on Final Fantasy X to go compose for Asmik Ace Entertainment, Inc. However, he is now once again working for Square Enix, having contributed several tracks to Seiken Densetsu 4 (2007). Most recently he has arranged the music in Final Fantasy IV DS (originally composed by Nobuo Uematsu).

Nakano has a very distinctive style, an aggressive ambience often used to weave ethereal and noble melodies. His most significant solo work was Threads of Fate (or "Dewprism", in Japan), where he displays this style most strongly. The most acclaimed track on this album was "Passing Through the Forest".
