About The Game

Pirate Ship Higemaru is an arcade video game.

Take on the role of Momotaro who must launch barrels at enemies to stop the evil Higemaru pirates.


Released in September 1984.

This game features one of the first game soundtracks composed by Tamayo Kawamoto, who made also other Capcom 80's BGM. She now works at Taito : she's a member of Zuntata, the popular (well, in Japan) Taito band where she plays keyboards.
