Yuji Naka PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Video game icon Yuji Naka – the former boss of Sonic Team and the lead programmer of the original Sonic the Hedgehog games – has announced that he joined Square Enix in January. “I’m joining game development as before, and strive to develop games at Square Enix,” he said. “I aim to develop an enjoyable game, please look forward to it.”

Naka left Sonic Team in 2006 and founded Prope, which has created titles such as Digimon All-Star Rumble. It’s unclear whether Naka’s new role at Square Enix will affect Prope, but we’ll send out some emails and attempt to get some clarification.
