Shimomura joined Capcom in 1988, where she worked mainly on CPS1 titles (using the alias '''Pii♪'''), the most famous of these being ''[[Street Fighter II]]''. She was also a member of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alph_Lyla Alph Lyla], Capcom's former in-house band, for Game Music Festival '92. In addition, she is known to have made secret contributions (especially during 1990) to other games (as displayed on her [http://www.midiplex.com/works.html official worklist]).

Shimomura's work on RPG title ''[[Breath of Fire]]'' (which turned out to be only one track) attracted the attention of RPG tycoon [[w:c:squareenix:Square|Square]] (now [[w:c:squareenix:Square Enix|Square Enix]]), which offered her a job there in recognition of her talent. She accepted, leaving Capcom in July of 1993 (hence her lack of credit in the SNES version of ''[[Street Fighter II Turbo]]'') out of interest in writing classical-style music for fantasy RPGs: something she was unable to do in her present position in the arcade sound team. While at Square she composed the music for games such as ''[[w:c:squareenix:Live a Live|Live a Live]]'', ''[[w:c:mario:Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars|Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars]]'', ''[[w:c:parasiteeve:Parasite Eve|Parasite Eve]]'', ''[[w:c:squareenix:Legend of Mana|Legend of Mana]]'' and ''[[w:c:kingdomhearts:Kingdom Hearts|Kingdom Hearts]]''.

Though she is now a freelancer, Shimomura tends to work on games that are in the same series as what she previously worked on, namely the ''[[w:c:mario:Mario RPG|Mario RPG]]'' and ''Kingdom Hearts'' series, and, in one instance, returned to her Capcom roots for ''[[Last Ranker]]''.
