Former Sega Lead Joins Square Enix
Yuji Naka, an acclaimed game designer, has just announced via Twitter that he will be teaming up with Square Enix.
Just a quick note to let you know, I joined SQUARE ENIX in January.
I’m joining game development as before, and strive to develop games at SQUARE ENIX.
I aim to develop an enjoyable game, please look forward to it.

Naka was formerly the head of the Sonic Team at Sega before leaving in 2006 to spearhead his own independent studio, Prope. They released Let’s Tap for the Wii in 2008, a game where players tapped a cardboard box to match cues on the screen. He also developed a few Digimon games including Digimon Adventure (2013) for the PSP and Digimon All-Star Rumble (2014) for the PlayStation 3.
There is no news on what exactly Naka will be working on at Square Enix, but with these two gaming gurus combined, we can only hope something exciting is coming our way.
This is the first big announcement for Naka since Prope’s last release, Rodea the Sky Soldier for Wii and Wii U.
