Yōichi Erikawa is a Japanese video game developer who is known for his work at Koei, specifically for the Romance of the Three Kingdoms games. He single-handedly programmed many video games.

While Yoichi is not a composer, it is suggested that he represents himself as being the whole staff in Koei's NES games, so he is assumed as the sound programmer. He may have also been responsible for the sound effects.
