Takayuki Nakamura (中村 隆之), born July 1967, is a guitarist and a sound designer and engineer. Regarding his work with Sega (which began in August 1989), he is perhaps best known for composing the music for the original Virtua Fighter.

Following his departure from Sega in August 1996, Nakamura joined Dream Factory Co., Ltd. the following month, through which he composed the music for a few Square titles (namely Tobal 2 and Ehrgeiz).

He later became a head member of Brainstorm Co., Ltd. in October 1999 (having left Dream Factory two months prior), joined by artist Katsumi Yokota (from Sega) and recording engineer Kenzi Nagashima (from Light Link Music), all of whom helped create the music for the hit PSP title Lumines (and later the Nintendo DS title "Meteos"). He is still a member of Brainstorm to this day.

Nakamura has also served as a freelancer between Brainstorm's main releases (developed by Q Entertainment, Inc.), having been associated with developers including Tomy Corporation (for Fighting Fury and Naruto), Genki (for Kabuki Warriors and the Kengo series), Anchor, Inc. (for Pride FC and the WWE Raw series) and StudioFAKE Co., Ltd. (for Custom Robo and Dynasty Warriors) as well as the publisher Sammy Corporation (for Guilty Gear and King of Fighters).
