Junko Ozawa is a Japanese composer and sound designer. She is known for his numerous soundtracks at Namco including The Tower of Druaga series, Sky Kid, Rolling Thunder, and many others. Junko quit Namco around 2008.

Music Development

ARC

Junko said, specifically for Rolling Thunder, that she wrote the music in assembly and on the MC6809 CPU.

NES

Junko's arcade music was originally ported to the NES by Nobuyuki Ohnogi, but when Nobuyuki left Namco, Junko had to port her own music. This was a wise choice on Namco's end because it guaranteed better accuracy to the arcade music. She originally wrote the music in assembly using a sound driver by Nobuyuki and Fukashi Ohmorita. Later she learned NES programming and modified Ohmorita and Ohnogi's sound driver.
