Something I've figured out recently.

1. Masaru was responsible for Sonic Jam's music along with Kenichi Tokoi. Note the credit title "Compose & Arrange."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SERdCIuiouo at 1:13

2. Among these tracks are a rearrangement of Sonic 3's Data Select Screen in Gallery, and the use of the same instruments and [almost the same] melody as Data Select Screen for Sonic World.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ocIpDz9zTM - Gallery
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQiSqjjr3Ig - Sonic World

3. Kenichi Tokoi was not credited in Sonic 3, as Sonic Jam was one of his first games with Sega.

http://www.mobygames.com/developer/s...loperId,52518/

Therefore, Masaru Setsumaru composed Sonic 3's Data Select Screen.


Mini unofficial breakdown for Sonic Jam
Masaru Setsumaru: Opening, Sonic World, Gallery, Mission Start, Mission Finish 1, Mission Finish 2, Credits [Higher audio quality among all these] [Movies and extras]
Kenichi Tokoi: Game Select, Digital Manual, Time Attack, Best Lap, Result 1 [TA], Result 2 [TA] [Lower audio quality and shared instruments (i.e. Sax, which is also his distnguishing instrument in Sonic Adventure)] [Menus]



Be sure to check out my other Sonic 3 & Knuckes observations here:

From Sonic & Knuckles Collection for the PC:
http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_%26...onsole_version

Sound Coordinator: Masaru Setsumaru
Sound Arrangers: Shigeaki Irie (USP), Masaaki Nishizawa (USP), Goro Takahashi (USP)

So I guess Setsumaru was the one who created those nine replacement compositons.

Where do the birthdate and city come from? Google search on 瀬津丸勝 and 1971 reveals nothing.

His birthday from his Facebook profile is August 7 as his birthday.
And his YouTube account says his age is 40.
But this is wrong anyway, his birthday being August 7, 1971 would make him 39. I
August 7, 1970 is his real birthday. Sorry for my lame math skills. :P

His FB profile also lists Kanazawa-shi, Ishikawa, Japan as his hometown.

Just a quick note: edits such as these require the posting of a source, particularly if it's not easilly found.

Facebook pages are a bit more tricky to use, because if his profile is not public, he may not want this information revealed in online biographies. Do you have a link for his page?

Wow, I never responded to this? I finally checked and yea, his birthday isn't shown publicly. Does this warrant a removal?

Also, this has an alleged picture of him. I wonder what's the source?

ALSO, I believe to have found his Twitter handle, oyz7963. It's the same as his email listed on his FB page.

I try to only add personal info from Facebook that's publicly viewable to people who aren't logged in, but that's me personally and I don't think we've ever formalized anything about that. (Likewise, I don't even link Facebook accounts if they're completely private from people who aren't logged in.)

oyz7963 is a pretty unusual username so that Twitter account is probably his, but the bio is pretty generic and doesn't outright identify him as Setsumaru. I do see he's friends with Hideaki Kobayashi, Hideki Naganuma, Keiichi Sugiyama, and a few other non-Sega VGM folks.

I don't know what the source is, but here is another page with the picture of the same guy called the same name.

Note: It's the last photo.

! I've seen another pic of that same guy credited as Masaru. I'll send him the pic to see if it's really him.

EDIT: It's him.

I just noticed this, but where is the edit field for the a composer's aliases? Setsu should have Oyz as his, and I added this to the variation field because I could not find the correct field to put it in.

You have to have an album where he's credited under that name and link it to the artist entry.
