I have a notice！ Hello, to all the fans out there. I wanted to let you know I will be leaving Capcom.
I was able to accomplish many things thanks to your love and support. Words themselves don’t seem to be enough for this situation, but allow me to say “Thank you!” to all of you.
Fighting games will always be important to Capcom, and it’s thanks to all of you that Capcom can make them. Your support is greatly appreciated!
Thank you everyone! It’s been great taking a ride with you!
P.S. While no longer at Capcom, I’ll still continue in my role as a producer in the games industry. I’m sure our paths with cross again!
