She made so many incredible soundtracks - Kingdom hearts, Xenoblade Chronicles etc.

The legend. My hero

No one mentioning her sick ass work on Parasite Eve, Luminous Arc 2 or even the entire Mario RPG/Mario & Luigi-series? K.

You know, it's not like people thinks her less known soundtracks are not good or anything, it's just that kingdom hearts & final fantasy are massive. I know all of her works and yet kingdom hearts is the best she has ever done imo. FFXV is looking to be amazing as well, so those game being praised it's not weird

Let's not forgot her helping on Xenoblade Chronicles' OST which was great too.

Kingdom Heart, FFXV, Kingdom Hearts, FFXV.... It's almost sad people just talk about those when she's done a lot of things like Legend of Mana, Live A Live, Radiant Historia and many others.

FFXV and Kingdom Hearts are really good, it's just that there's so much more.

Fantastic composer.

I thought Kingdom Hearts would always be where she shined the best.

Then I listened to FFXV's OST. G.O.A.T.

Although Yoko is notably known for her scores in the Kingdom Hearts series, I really love the OST she composed for Final Fantasy XV (previously known as Versus XIII). Somnus and Omnis Lacrima are two scores from FFXV that stands above the rest and will probably be my favorites for a long time. Can't wait for the full game of XV to come out next year :D
