Minako Hamano is a Japanese composer of video game music working for Nintendo. She has composed music for Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion, Metroid: Zero Mission, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid: Samus Returns. For Samus Returns, Hamano was a sound coordinator rather than a composer, although some of her previous Metroid tracks have been remixed in the game, and she is additionally credited as an original composer. Her claim to fame was being a composer for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
Hamano was only 24 years old during the development of Super Metroid. She originally recorded a voice for Samus Aran during the Game Over sequence, but it had sounded too sexual and was removed. The voice may still exist within the code, but it has not yet been found. Hamano composed the SA-X Appears track in Fusion.
