A few years after the release of the Sony Playstation—toward the end of the 1990s—Junya Kuroda gained a foundational knowledge of video game sound production while working on titles such as SaGa Frontier and Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon. As a freelancer, he went on to work in sound production on various projects including the Shadow Hearts series and Xenosaga Episode I. He joined Procyon Studio when it was incorporated in 2001.

Ranging from sound effects creation, to audio post-production, voice editing, and audio integration, Kuroda works with the entirety of sound production (with the exception of music production). He specializes in using samplers and synthesizers to produce unique sound effects.

Kuroda's major works include: SaGa Frontier, Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon, Shadow Hearts, Xenosaga Episode I, Inazuma Eleven, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Another Eden, Oninaki, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and many others.

Kuroda works with various middleware, including Unity, Unreal Engine, CRIWARE, Wwise, platform specific tools, and so on.

It is said that people get 80% of information from their sense of sight. As a result, due to being incredibly refined and sophisticated, our sense of sight is difficult to deceive. Even when beautiful scenery is shown inside a display screen, we see it somewhat objectively. In comparison, our sense of hearing is easy to deceive. Even if it's coming from the TV, we feel fear when hearing a scream, or tranquility when hearing the gentle murmur of a river. Regardless of whether it is music or sound, without logic it directly penetrates and paints over our hearts. Is there a job more interesting than this?
