Etsuo Ishii (better known as Astron Ishii) is a Japanese composer and sound designer who works for Namco. He started working for the company around 1988 and primarily worked on their coin-op games, with one of his first works being Mirai Ninja (alongside Norio Nakagata). His best known soundtrack is for the arcade game Marvel Land. Some of his other known works include Lucky & Wild, Prop Cycle, and Golly! Ghost. During the 90s, he started being credited less for music and more for sound effects, production, and engineering.

Ishii stayed with Namco when they became Bandai Namco Games, and continues to work for the company to this day.
