Approximately one and a half year after his last appearance in the game music scene as the sound producer of the 3-D Fighting Game, "Tobal No.1" (and also, almost 2 whole years after his last title as a composer in "Gun Hazard"), Yasunori finally made his much anticipated return to the scene with an even more polished sound, in the RPG title, "Xenogears". This time, his main theme for composing, was to write songs that could be listened to - not only as a BGM for the game, but also as a single song by itself. As a result of this, many of the songs off of the album turned out to be very self-expressive; with each song having distinct characteristics that appealed differently to the listener's ears. Though the process that he had to go through in writing these songs was very long and difficult, in return, he says that he was able to experience many joys of music, and also through experiencing studio and recording work with some of the top musicians from countries like Ireland, Bulgaria and Japan, he was able to grow and develop in many different aspects. And of these many songs, the ending theme "Small Two of Pieces", which included the vocalist Joanne Hogg of the Irish rock band, "IONA", was of exceptional quality. With this song, Yasunori also left his mark in history as the first composer ever to insert a vocal track into the ending theme song of a SQUARE game.
