Hiroaki Yoshida is a Japanese composer and sound designer who worked for Data East. While working there, he composed the music for almost all of their arcade games. Because Azusa Hara also worked on the music and sound for a great deal of Data East's arcade games, Hiroaki and Azusa usually worked together on Data East's arcade games. Yoshida currently plays guitar in the band Gamadelic with some other former Data East staff members. While Yoshida's real name is known, he goes by his nickname Maro.
