“Emerald Hill Zone”!


Dear “Sonic the Hedgehog” fans all around the world,

Nice to meet you.
I am Masato Nakamura, the music composer of “Sonic the Hedgehog 1&2”,
I did the basic musical arrangements as well.

Also, I am a member of the band, “DREAMS COME TRUE”.

I am very happy to share the news.
One of my compositions, “Emerald Hill Zone” will be used in the movie “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” which will come out in 2022.

When I composed the music for “Sonic the Hedgehog 1&2”.
I tried to write a soundtrack for the movie. I imagined the game like a movie.

After 30 years later, my music for the game becomes a part of the movie soundtrack of “Sonic the Hedgehog”. Literally, it’s a dream comes true.

Back then, I programmed with Atari computer and Notatorfrom C-LAB.
It was very hard work because of the limited polyphonies.

Unfortunately, not that many people know that I am the composer of “Sonic the Hedgehog 1&2”.

Please take a listen to the sound track of “Sonic the Hedgehog 1&2”

In the first movie “Sonic the Hedgehog 1”, another composition of mine, “Green Hill Zone” is used only a little.
I hope we will hear my music more in the upcoming “Sonic Movie 2”.

I appreciate your support.

A hint of spring is in the air.

With love from Tokyo,

Masato Nakamura
