It was announced earlier this week that Yoko Shimomura, composer of Kingdom Hearts, will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Game Developers Choice Awards in March.

Excerpt from the announcement:

“We are so proud to honor Yoko Shimomura and Fawzi Mesmar for their multiple decades worth of contribution to the crafts of art and making games,” said Stephenie Hawkins, Event Director at Informa Tech. “Not only have they created enduring works in the medium, they’ve also carved a path that allowed others in their fields to thrive and succeed. Their success is measured not just in their singular accomplishments, but in the ways they’ve inspired the works of other aspiring composers and designers around the world.”

Outside of Kingdom Hearts, Shimomura is also well known for her memorable compositions from Super Mario RPG, the Mario and Luigi series, and Final Fantasy XV.

The award ceremony will take place on March 20th at 6:30pm PT with a live broadcast on GDC Twitch.
