Archipel Caravan Releases Interview with SEGA Music Legend Takenobu Mitsuyoshi | Video Spotlight

Thursday, November 5th, 2020

Archipel Caravan, responsible for a slew of documentaries on Japanese video game creators, have published a new, 20 minute long interview with beloved SEGA composer and vocalist, Takenobu Mitsuyoshi.

The interview goes through how he got his start at SEGA, and what pushed him to join in the first place; as well as how the vocal aspect of Daytona USA came to be (we have Ridge Racer to thank, apparently!). It’s genuinely fascinating, and it feels surprisingly rare that we get to see a down-to-earth interview like this with Mitsuyoshi-san. Of course, once the music starts he’s just as excitable as ever, and in turn it’s a lot of fun to watch.

Archipel’s previous videos have included interviews with Saori Kobayashi of Panzer Dragoon, and Toshihiro Nagoshi of… well, a lot of things, including Yakuza, Daytona USA and Super Monkey Ball. Their stuff is well worth a watch, and this latest interview is no exception.

SEGA Tunes: Watch Takenobu Mitsuyoshi Perform Let’s Go Away Live in the Studio

Sunday, April 5th, 2015


Takenobu Mitsuyoshi is the voice of many of your favourite SEGA themes but if he’s remembered for one in particular it has to be Let’s Go Away from Daytona USA. He also strikes me as a man who absolutely adores his work and that certainly seems like the case if you watch him perform this live rendition of Let’s Go Away in the studio. Press play, crank the volume and let Mitsuyoshi-san take you away:

Daytona USA DLC Coming to Ridge Racer on PS Vita

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Now here’s some SEGA-related news I didn’t expect to see! The famous Hornet vehicle from Daytona USA and a special Daytona USA remix will be coming to Ridge Racer of Playstation Vita via DLC.

The remix is worth a special mention as the ‘RIDGE RACER USA MIX’ is the result of a collaboration between Namco composer Hiroshi Okubo and SEGA’s Takenobu Mitsuyoshi.

There’s also video of the Hornet in action on one of the Ridge Racer tracks available at Famitsu’s website. Click here to be taken straight to the page in question.

There is currently no word on whether or not this DLC will be making it to the West but the Japanese are getting this on June 6th; ¥150 for the remix and ¥250 for the Hornet.

Make it happen SEGA West!
