Nobuyuki Hara was a Japanese programmer and part-time composer who worked for Sunsoft. Although he was primarily an audio programmer, he did write music for the odd game or two. He worked with Shinichi Seya on many projects, which almost always meant programming and implementing Naoki Kodaka's music into the game.

He tragically passed away in 1995 with a disease in his hands in the mid-twenties.

Audio Development


For the NES and Famicom Disk System, Hara wrote the music first in 6502 assembly hexadecimal notation in Akito Takeuchi's sound driver, and later used Music Macro Language when the engine was upgraded by Shinichi Seya.
