Headquarters Minakuchi, Japan

Minakuchi Engineering was a Japanese game developer, based in the town of the same name. They mostly handled porting and spin-off titles for other companies, and in particular worked as regular sub-contractors for Capcom for much of the early-mid 1990s. The company appears to have ceased to exist around 2003 or 2004.

Music Development


For their only known Genesis game, Mega Man: The Wily Wars (GEN), the company borrowed Tokuhiko Uwabo's sound engine from Sega.


Hiroshi Wada created the sound engine used in the company's early Game Boy titles. Kouji Murata designed a new sound driver for Bionic Commando (GB), which was used for their remaining Game Boy games.


Most of their SNES titles were sub-contracted from Capcom, so they just used Capcom's own sound drivers. The one known exception to this is F-1 Grand Prix (SNES), on which they used Yoshikazu Yao's sound driver.
