Yoko Wada is a Japanese composer and sound designer. She was the main composer for SIMS and composed most (if not all) of their Sega Master System and Game Gear games. While she was working at SIMS, a game credited a Yoko Yamamoto only once for music. This could be Yoko, but this has not yet been confirmed.

Audio Development


Yoko wrote in Music Macro Language using the SIMS sound driver. It may have possibly been programmed by Noboru Machida.

Yoko used several aliases throughout her career, likely due to requirements at the companies she worked for. In most games, she used the moniker Nasubi, which is Japanese for "Eggplant". The etymology of this name is unknown.
