Yasuo Yamate (山手 安生, Yamate Yasuo - April, 14, 1957), better known to SNK fans as Tate Norio, is a Japanese music composer and audio enginner who was hired by SNK in 1986. Before working for SNK, he composed soundtracks for many games such as Sonic - The Hedgehog, Ninja Gaiden series, Final Fight series, Contra series and most other games. Also helped in the composition of music from Street Fighter II, Super Hang On, Shadow Dancer and other games.
He actively tries to make his compositions match with the personality of the characters, using any musical genre that he deems necessary. He personally likes his symphonic tracks the best, but is often called for various rock or jazz arrangements for the games he's assigned. King of Fighters fans will best recognize him for his wild saxophone arrangements in Arashi no Saxophone, token theme songs for Iori Yagami. He still works for the company to this day but on a more freelance basis.
