RPG Maker is proud to present a brand new collaboration
with the acclaimed composer Hiroki Kikuta!

Hiroki Kikuta's impressive resume includes composing for some of our favorite games – including Secret of Mana, Soul Caliber V, Soukaigi, Koudelka, Shining Hearts, Shining Blade, Shining Ark, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky, and more!

This exciting collaboration will bring two of Kikuta's incredible music albums to RPG Maker – as DLC you'll be able to add to your games. Inspired by both classic and modern fantasy, both albums feature Hiroki Kikuta's memorable style and flowing melodies.

But we want to take this collaboration a step further, and give both RPG Maker and Kikuta's fans a unique opportunity to be featured along the two music packs.
