The NES version of Hillsfar uses the song for the same purpose as the PC-9801 version. However, the Bank and Book Store can not be patronized in the NES version, and therefore, the songs are not used at those locations. The song plays a little faster than the PC-9801 original.
The song was arranged to the NES by Yoshio Kobayashi, who sequenced the music on a PC-8001 mkII computer. It was programmed into sound code by the game's programmer, Kazuhisa Mitani.
