Question Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom composer info

As a fan of this excellent game and of the music, as you may know the composers are some of the best of the best: Yuzo Koshiro, Motoi Sakuraba, Michiru Yamane, Keiki Kobayashi, and Takeshi Yanagawa, with the main theme performed by Haruka Shimotsuki.

Any idea of a composer list for the tracks? I have my guesses, like the main weapon shop theme maybe Koshiro and there is a sewer level that sounds very Castlevania-like so probably Yamane. Any ideas or guesses for who composed what? The soundtrack alone took them 2 years to make, well worth the cost of the game just for this collection of awesome music.

There's a breakdown here: https://www21.atwiki.jp/gamemusicbes...ages/7693.html

No idea if it's just speculative though.

The game audio files have composer tags with those credits, so it's probably accurate. "Credits" is apparently composed by Sakuraba and performed by Shimotsuki btw, and there are some arranged(?) tracks not in the breakdown by "Banjo Guy Ollie".

Yes! I forgot about Ollie's tracks. You collect music sheets for him throughout the game and can unlock 7 more arrangements, then he will play them for you in the main town square (Village of Lupia) similar to Shovel Knight. I added them to the list above.

Updated with the official track names from the Monster Boy Jukebox, which I found you earn after unlocking a secret area! Added the missing entries, specifically the 8 and 16 bit arrangements. This should be a complete list now, only missing a few composers.
