Audio Development


Because of the passing years, Tohru cannot clearly remember how he scored the music to Rambo (NES), but said he probably would have written MIDI files which were sent to the developers to implement into the game.

In the Japanese version of Rambo (NES), Tohru is credited as とおる はせへ (Tohru Hasehe), instead of "be" (べ), the game uses "he" (へ) and is missing the dakuten (゛) symbol that makes it "be" rather than "he". This is due to the game being out of space to include dakuten and handakuten symbols in the staff roll, so this alias is unintentional. Also, it is interesting to note that Tohru is not credited in the Japanese standard naming convention (surname first, given name last).
