Hiroshi Endō is a Japanese composer and sound designer who was the audio director Home Data. He joined the company around 1989 and both oversaw and did audio for a majority of their games. He may have also been the one to have founded the company's in-house sound team Eurythm. He usually worked alongside Kenichi Fujii and other composers. When more composers joined Home Data, he received less composition credits, and started to be credited for audio direction. It appears when Home Data rebranded themselves to Magical Company, it appears Endo and the rest of the Eurythm sound team departed from the company, though this isn't confirmed due to Magical Company lacking credits in most of their games.

It appears his last credit was in 1997 for the game Planet Joker.

Audio Development


Endo used a sound driver by Toshiyuki Hirota. The music was written in Music Macro Language.


This is a translation of Endo's hidden message in Marble Madness (X68).

I am Endo, in charge of sound. I just did the music for the sound logo. Ueda-kun did a really good job in creating the song data and sound effects! Who wrote such hard-to-copy songs? The person who made the arrangements is more worthy than the person who made it! I am tempted to say.

That said, the Marble Madness songs are well done on many levels. There were many things that I was taught anew through my involvement in development. I hope to continue to produce more and more high quality sounds in the future. Enjoy the sound of Ueda-kun's masterpiece, X68000 Marble Madness, with stereo or stereo headphones.
