Tecmo Koei have confirmed plans to split Team Ninja into two new teams, first details inside…
The reorganisations are to their corporate and development structure meaning the Team Ninja as we know it is being split into two. The two new studios to be created will be known as Ichigaya Development Group 1 and Ichigaya Development Group 2.
It has been revealed that Yosuke Hayashi, who is currently the head of Team Ninja, will be the head of Ichigaya Development Group 1. Keisuke Kikuchi who is currently a senior manager in Team Ninja, will then be the head of Ichigaya Development Group 2.
There is no further information as to how this may affect any titles currently in development, but it is worth noting Tecmo have been working closely with Nintendo so hopefully this be to some benefit for the Wii U and 3DS.
