The Persona composer’s first step into a new career
Beat master Shoji Meguro – the longtime composer of the amazing scores of Person series – has unveiled his first video game project since leaving his long-standing role at Atlus. Premiere at Indie Live Expo Winter 2021, Guns Undarkness will see Meguro take his first steps into a new career as an independent game developer.
Guns Undarkness will see a possession of rag-marked mercenaries embark on a series of black-ups missions, set against the backdrop of a city recently destroyed by a nuclear explosion. The third-person title will combine stealth-action exploration with turn-based combat. The short (and very early) preview features futuristic equipment and weapons and a selection of anime-style mercs, each equipped with their own skills and abilities.
You can watch the preview footage in the Indie Live Expo Winter stream below, which is bookmarked at 28:00.
Although there is a bit of meat to put your teeth into here, all eyes will be on the talented composer as they carve out a niche for themselves in the field of indie gaming. Person fans do not have to be annoyed, however, as Meguro has already noticed that they intend to continue their work as a composer on a freelance basis, and therefore Atlus should still be able to contract Meguro to bring his very distinctive sound – just as much as a character. like any protagonist – for the future Person releases.
Guns Undarkness is currently under development for PC. A release date has not been announced.
