Tomonobu Itagaki, former boss of Ninja Team, has announced today that he has left his position as representative director of Valhalla Game Studios, the studio which developed Devil's Third.

In the announcement Itagaki himself stated that he won't leave the company, but he will simply assume another position within it, becoming prime adviser.

"Now, with the passing of my 50th birthday as a personal milestone I will put into effect a change that I have been planning for some time, changing my place and purpose in the game development industry," he said. "Rather than working for just myself or just my own company, I wish to contribute as much as I can to the game development industry as a whole and help it to grow by passing on my own method of development, my own method of creating games, to those who would like to work with me. I will, of course, continue working with Valhalla Game Studios, providing full support to its young staff."

At the moment, it's not yet been announced who will take his place as Valhalla Game Studios' director. What do you make of this shift?

Devil's Third

Thanks, Gematsu.
