After leaving Sony, the producer of the hit Bloodborne, considered one of the best games of the past generation, has already found a new home. As the former President of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Shuhei Yoshida, Masaaki Yamagiwa has joined the Team Ninja team, now engrossed in Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. The photo that Yoshida publishes is already in fact in the facilities of the Japanese studio, in which they share a snapshot, in addition to himself and Yamagiwa, Fumihiko Yasuda, a member of Team Ninja.

Although Yamagiwa is known for being, as we said, producer of Bloodborne, he also fulfilled that role in Deraciné, the peculiar From Software game for PlayStation VR, as well as Tokyo Jungle, being in charge of the defunct Japan Studio. In addition, he has also worked on numerous deliveries of Sonic, such as Sonic Advance, Sonic Rush or Sonic: Unleashed. Yamagiwa left Sony last February, although by then he anticipated that he would continue to be linked to the video game industry. Eight months later, his future is already tied to that of Team Ninja, although at the moment it is unknown what he will work on in the coming times.

Yamagiwa’s is just one of Japan Studio’s many exits, with many of its members having revealed the future. While some of them entered Team Asobi (Astro’s Playroom), others like Teruyuki Toriyama (Demon’s Souls Remake) or Keiichiro Toyama founded their own studio. The latter, a member of the Silent Hill creative team, is already working on his next horror game in Bokeh Game Studio along with others like Kazynobu Sato or Junya Okura.

Team Ninja, with work ahead

Meanwhile, Team Ninja still has a lot to do with Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, a game that is not 100% convincing because of what has been shown so far. This peculiar spin off of the Square Enix saga, focused on action and clearly inspired by Souls, has recently released a demo to try to attract followers, although it still has some development time left. On the other hand, from the studio they have reiterated on several occasions that, at least for now, they are not working on a new installment of two of their most popular franchises such as Ninja Gaiden and Nioh.
