“I’m proud to join the Genesis Mini team (the name of the console in its American version), I’m going to make the music for the menus where the great games will be shown,” explains Koshiro on his own Twitter social network account. “I have programmed the music for the menu by playing authentic Genesis / Mega Drive sound with many sound banks selected from real games for the Yamaha YM2612 sound chip. I hope you like it!”
