Nintendo is about to lose someone who’s been critical to crafting the sound of their biggest games.

Composer Ryo Nagamatsu, who’s worked on big-name games like Nintendo Land, Wii Sports Resort, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the Switch remake of Link’s Awakening, Splatoon 2 and 3, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Mario Kart 8 has announced that he’s left Nintendo. He wrapped up his duties at the Big N on April 30th, 2023.

Nagamatsu didn’t explain his reasoning for leaving Nintendo, but he did share a message with fans on Twitter. You can see his full statement below.

I have made a decision to leave the company of April 30, 2023. I will work a little wider and more directly to help those who need my help and to help the industry. Thank you all for your kind support! I look forward to serve you in the future! (an amicable settlement)
