Legendary SEGA and Sonic the Hedgehog developer Yuji Naka has announced via social media that he’s recently joined Square Enix to help the Final Fantasy developer create an “enjoyable game.”
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 didn’t offer up any information on what game he plans on developing. He officially left SEGA in 2006 to start his own development company PROPE, which first developed the mobile game Let’s Tap in 2008. Most recently, he served as the executive producer for Rodea the Sky Soldier.
It will be interesting to hear if Naka is heading up his own game or if Square has handed over an existing series to him. Heck, maybe we can finally get a sequel to Girl’s Garden, right?
