Japanese composer Koichi Sugiyama, best known for creating the music for the "Dragon Quest" video game series, died on Sept. 30 of septic shock. He was 90.
In addition to the video game music, Sugiyama also composed a number of pop songs, as well as music for TV commercials and films. The theme song for "Dragon Quest" was played during the opening ceremony for the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer.
Sugiyama's funeral was held by close relatives.
