Setsuo Yamamoto (山本節生) is a sound and music composer that has worked for Capcom since 1992. During the 90's he composed music for many games in Capcom's catalog, including several on the Street Fighter, Mega Man and Rival Schools franchises. Ever since 2003, Yamamoto adopted more executive and supportive roles in the company, primarily as manager of the mixing/sound studio. His early works are often credited under his first name "Setsuo", although as of 2013 he has also gone by the alias "Mr.X".[2]

Setsuo Yamamato was the music composer for Strider 2, working together with Etsuko Yoneda. While he was aware of the first game's soundtrack, he prefered to not draw too much inspiration from it and instead create music through his own personal approach[1]. The core concept behind the soundtrack was Hiryu's personality, something he considered would make it stand apart from the original game's score[1]. Each theme was composed by taking into account either Hiryu's feelings at the situations he faces or the general feelings expressed by the stage or area's setting.[3]

Yamamoto has stated his favorite artist is the "original Prince" and his favorite album is Lovesexy.[1]
