Default Trying to find a 1990s VGM, will pay $100 USD via Paypal to 1st person who can help

UPDATE: Found it! Wolfchild on the Sega CD, Track 5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oE-a1w5BEfA


ORIGINAL POST:

In the early 1990s (I'm guessing 1993), I heard a piece of VGM while on hold placing an order at the Die Hard Game Club.

This piece of music has eluded me since then and I'm hoping one of the experts here can help me solve this multi-decade mystery once and for all!

The instruments sound like a cross between something from Wolfteam, Falcom, Zuntata or Shadow Dancer (Mega Drive).

I will send $100 USD via Paypal to the first person who can post the answer (no joke, for real)! My recollection of this song is in the video link below (the song starts out quiet and then begins with this bass line at the beginning):

Thank you for your help!

Sounds a bit familiar, but I can't place it. Is there a possible that it comes from a US game, maybe even from PC?

BTW, you might be interested in this podcast:

The Die Hard Game Club never sold PC games, their specialty was Japanese consoles like Mega Drive / CD, PC Engine, Super Famicom, Neo Geo, FM Towns Marty and music CDs. Given that, I'm convinced it's a Japanese tune from a console or an arrangement on a music CD. But I wouldn't rule out anything at this point.

Although the bass line I hummed could easily come from an X68000 or NEC PC-98.

This Landstalker arranged tune was the closet thing I could find: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkH3VxrHY80

I will check out that podcast, thanks!

It also sounds similar to this bass line from Heavy Nova (Mega CD): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwbDdRQKYv4&t=1207s
