Kenta Nagata (永田 権太) is a game composer working for Nintendo, joining the company in the EAD Kyoto department. He has been mostly active in the Mario Kart and Zelda franchises (being Mario Kart 64 and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker among his notable works), as well as the recent New Super Mario Bros. subseries.

It is speculated that he got married to fellow Nintendo composer Shinobu Nagata, although that information hasn't been proven true yet.
