Developed by the Sega AM2 internal development division, the on-rails shooter Space Harrier arrived in arcades on October 2nd of 1985.

Music for Space Harrier is by Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi. London-based record label Data Discs previously published the limited edition Space Harrier remastered vinyl LP. The digital album is published through Bandcamp, remastered for digital distribution by Shaun Crook at Lockdown Studios in London, featuring a bonus arrangement by Sega's S.S.T. Band.

Sega Ages Space Harrier is currently available for Nintendo Switch. A Sega Ages Staff Reflections commentary video with Hiro can be viewed on Sega's Youtube channel.

From the product page:
Space Harrier is perhaps most memorable for its lengthy and melodic opening theme, in which SEGA’s renowned in-house composer, Hiroshi “Hiro” Kawaguchi (OutRun, After Burner), armed with a Yamaha DX-7 and the most minimal of resources, sought to recreate the sound of a full band. In doing so, he defied the technological constraints of the time and inspired a generation of game composers, including Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage), who has since cited Space Harrier as a defining early influence.
