Yuji Naka has officially announced that he has left Square Enix. He is best known for co-creating Sonic The Hedgehog, Nights Into Dreams, and most recently, Balan Wonderworld.
In a tweet he posted earlier today, he said:
“I resigned from Square Enix at the end of April.
While I cannot share the reason right now, I hope to be able to discuss it when the time comes.
As for what I’ll do in the future, I’m already 55 years-old, so I may as well retire.”

Balan Wonderworld received almost universally negative reviews and reception from both critics and gamers alike. We also gave Balan Wonderworld a pretty bad review (check it out here), and it’s also currently showing a Mixed rating on Steam as well.
