USgamer Interviews "The Maestro of Mega Man," Manami Matsumae

Over on USgamer, Jeremy Parish has wrapped up his cover story for the week about Brave Wave Productions, a label dedicated to bringing attention to legendary video game musicians and allowing them to compose new works, with an interview with none other than Manami Matsumae.

For those unaware, Matsumae was an early employee of Capcom, acting as a composer for the very first game in the Mega Man franchise. She would make a return to the series many years later with Mega Man 9 and has even helped composer tracks for Yacht Club Games' Shovel Knight and the upcoming Mighty No. 9 by Comcept.
