Diddly-diddly dum-dum DER NER… taktaktaktaktak.
I’ve never really agreed with EA being branded as “The worst company in America” twice in a row. The reason for that is that there are far worse organisations out there, but with the recent nonsense they’ve pulled in regards to Dungeon Keeper for iOS and Android is it any wonder why they’re so reviled?
Turns out that the man behind the Resident Evil and Onimusha soundtracks wasn’t behind them at all, it was someone else altogether, a fella by the name of Takashi Niigaki has been penning Samuragochi’s work for the last 18 years.
Also turns out that Samuragochi’s claim he was also deaf turned out not to be true either.
“I am an accomplice of Samuragochi because I continued composing just as he demanded, although I knew he was deceiving people,” Niigaki said. “I told him a few times that we should stop doing this, but he never gave in. Also he said he would commit suicide if I stop composing for him.”
Even more bizarrely, Niigaki has also claimed that Samuragochi’s deafness is also a scam, adding: “I’ve never felt he was deaf ever since we met. We carry on normal conversations. I don’t think he is.
“At first he acted to me also as if he had suffered hearing loss, but he stopped doing so eventually. He told me, after the music for the video games was unveiled, that he would continue to play the role (of a deaf person).”
The story came to light after the 43-year-old chose to ‘reveal the deception after learning that Winter Olympics medal hopeful, figure skater Daisuke Takahashi had chosen to dance to a piece that would be credited to Samuragochi.’ as reported by ABC News
“I was afraid that even Takahashi, who will perform in the Olympics for Japan, would be used to enforce the lies made by Samuragochi and me,” he said.
Well, who’d of thunk it?
