Anyone with the authority to edit this, please remove Hiroto Saito and add Yasuhisa Watanabe and Kaori Oukoshi as the former member (although it's not clear whether Oukoshi left or not, so she still can be a member).

Is this the Kaori Oukoshi you meant?

Also, so Hiroto Saito really isn't part of Supersweep?

According to Supersweep's store, every release featuring Saitoh, at least recently, says he's from Studio Minstrel.

Was Yasuhisa Watanabe ever actually part of SuperSweep? The only confirmation I can find is from his Wikipedia page, and it's been there since the article's creation.

His last.fm profile doesn't mention SuperSweep: http://www.lastfm.jp/music/%E6%B8%A1...81%AD%E4%B9%85

And from the back scan of the first SuperSweep release that contains his music (SRIN-1007), he's not linked explicitly with SuperSweep, and Studio Dual Moon is already in existence: http://vgmdb.net/db/covers.php?do=view&cover=8441

Yep. Not sure if we should treat her as the former member or not, though.

1) The profile on his blog says he's been a fleerance composer since leaving Kougadou.

2) Unlike other members, his name has been never credited as ''Hiroto Saitoh (SuperSweep)''.

3) Hosoe says the company currently (read: the end of 2008) has 7 composers, so one has to go.

He was. According to the recent interview with Hosoe, Watanabe left Taito and beloged to SuperSweep very briefly (I'll post it when I come home).


So, again, could anyone list Watanabe as the former member? (as it appears to be exclusive to the site staffs).

Alright, I've added him back. Former members are specified by adding their year of departure from the group. I've temporarily set it as 2002.

Thanks. So I didn't need to let someone edit it.

When I met Hosoe the other day, he told me that Takanori Sato has retired from Supersweep.

I was informed by Hosoe today that Shoichiro Sakamoto has resigned from Supersweep. I've updated the Supersweep page accordingly.

It appears that Teruo Taniguchi (or someone with the same name) contributed a few pieces to Pokemon Black/White 2. Has he left SuperSweep and joined Game Freak?

Nope, he's credited as part of SuperSweep in the booklet. False alarm!

That makes sense. Yasui told me that he was one of many.

SuperSweep is starting a web show, tentatively titled "Tobidase! SuperSweep!!," on USTREAM. Their channel will be here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/tobidase-supersweep.

Their first show is scheduled for December 22 from 8:00 to 9:30 PM JST (11:00 AM GMT, 6:00 AM EST), and they'll be talking about the GUN FRONTIER/METAL BLACK/DINO REX album. Guests are Yasuhisa Watanabe (Metal Black BGM), Katsuhisa Ishikawa (Metal Black SFX), and Takamasa Hori (a programmer for all three games).

Info in Japanese here: http://sweeprecord.com/?p=6050.

So SuperSweep were in fact the ones responsible for Tetris 99: http://sweep.co.jp/index.php/20190603/

They haven't revealed the full staff yet, but so far these folks have claimed responsibility:

I'd agree with Taniguchi doing the Filght of the Bumblebee cover. It opens and sounds like it could be in a Pokemon game, to which he has contributed before, even if only in a very minor role.
