Sonic, who became Sega‘s mascot, first came to a confrontation in 1991 and has greatly increased his awareness with his later games. Naoto Oshima, Yuji Naka, and Hirokazu Yasuhara, who were initially confronted by the opposition, finally took the place on the shelf with the name Forces. Yuji Naka, one of the main designers of Sonic, announced that he was transferred to Square Enix.

Yuji Naka, who made a comment on his Twitter address, said, “I share a little note for you, I joined Square Enix from January, I joined the game development team as before, and I will try to develop games at Square Enix, and my goal is to make it a fun game.” he added that he would make the necessary announcements in the future along with his words.
Yuji Naka, who worked as the main designer in Sega during the brightest period of Sonic series, also worked in some games of Phantasy Star series besides small projects. What kind of project Naka is working on at Square Enix is unknown at this time. If you ask me, we have a chance to see him in some games that will stay on the Japanese border.
