Been waiting for this one. Best soundtrack <3

It looks like this is missing an additional composition credit: Yasuhiko Takashiba (as TAKASHIBA)

From the staff roll:

On the original 1993 OST, they only received a "special thanks":

But they were credited as one of three composers on the Arcade Disc In JALECO -VARIETY- in 2013:

(Soldam is the third game on CD 3)

It's possible that the entry in the booklet might explain things, but I can't read Japanese...

Later this month, there will be an all Soldam album, featuring music from the original, the GB conversion, an unreleased Famicom conversion and the new Switch game Soldam: Bloom Declaration. Maybe the booklet from that will clear things up a bit.

(City Connection, who is behind both the Jaleco compilation album and the game, owns the rights to Jaleco's IPs since 2013)

That is great news! (or maybe, "WHAT AN EXCITING NEWS!!") I liked what I heard of the Switch sequel's arrangements, but the real prize would be some composer disambiguation. I love both Yasuyuki Suzuki and Atsuyoshi Isemura's independent/solo work on other titles, but I still struggle to tell them apart here. This is literally one of my favourite video game soundtracks on any platform, here's hoping the album is robustly detailed. 8|
