We discuss his body of work, including his early days, the big break into Triple A music composition, and how he managed to get the “gig” with the Street Fighter team. We delve deep into the various different character themes for Street Fighter 5 and influences for creating the music. We also asked how a composer comes up with ideas for characters, and what source material they had for each character. We then speak about the recent articles that were doing the rounds, such as Connor Makar’s article from VG247 https://www.vg247.com/fei-long-street-fighter-not-coming-back as well as briefly touching on Nintendo Life’s article https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2022/05/bruce-lees-family-responds-to-suggestion-that-fei-long-wont-appear-in-future-street-fighters. We ask how it all started in his own words, and let him explain the timeline of events in his words. For full disclosure, we did reach out to Connor Makar at VG247 for further comment but we heard nothing back before the publishing of this episode. We hope you enjoy the episode. Please follow Daniel on Twitter @dropkickmonk3y as well as his Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/DanielLindholm2BStudio Thank you again to Daniel for giving us time to come on the show and speak openly about the situation.
