In the interview, Itagaki announced that it had recently established a new studio called Itagaki Games. He said, “I was in charge of training my juniors for the past 4 years, and now I want to make a game again,” he said. “I set up a company for this.”
In the early 2000s, Tomonobu Itagaki made the Ninja Iden and Dead or Alive series at Tecmo, making him known as a star developer. After leaving Tecmo, he established the Valhalla Games Studio in 2010, raising expectations from fans. However, the game’Devils Third’, which was produced at the time, was not well-received due to its low level of completion, and Itagaki eventually left Valhalla Games in 2017. He announced the return of his developer by establishing a new studio named after him four years later.
