Nintendo EAD Sound Group is a division within Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development who help create music and sounds for the various video games of Nintendo EAD Software Development and its many teams. It consists of some of Nintendo's most famous composers such as Koji Kondo, Kazumi Totaka and Toru Minegishi. Despite its implications that they're the only one who create sound for EAD titles, there are various other composers and sound creators who create music and sound for specific factions of EAD, such as Nintendo EAD Tokyo. Like most EAD teams, it's unclear exactly how many games the Sound Group has worked on. It has been consolidated into the EPD Sound Group with the restructuring in 2015.
