Yasuyuki Suzuki was a Japanese composer and sound designer, known for his numerous works with Jaleco. He joined the company around 1990 and left around 1994. Though he primarily worked on home consoles, he also composed a few arcade titles as well. During his time with Jaleco, he rarely worked alone, and usually worked alongside the likes of Atsuyoshi Isemura and Takahiro Ogata among various others. Some of his best known works include Soldam, Plasma Ball, and Ikari no Yousai SFC.

In 1995, Suzuki started working for Artdink, famous for their A-Train series. Some of his notable works with the company include Tail of the Sun and its successor Kyojin no Doshin 1 for the Nintendo 64DD. After leaving Artdink, he became a freelance sound artist and as a result, worked with various companies. For his freelance work, he is known for Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner and Space Invaders Extreme.

It appears Suzuki left the game industry in 2009.
