Veteran video game producer Tak Fujii has left Konami after 20 years at the Japanese company.
Fujii, best known for his bizarre E3 2010 presentation of Xbox 360 game Ninety-Nine Nights 2, announced his departure from Konami in a tweet.
It's been great 20 years of creation. Thanks for all who supported, loved my titles. Farewell and may the extreeeeemeness be with KONAMI.— Tak Fujii????? (@Tak_Fujii) December 17, 2014
Last year it was reported that Fujii had been diagnosed with cancer, but in a series of tweets he suggested this was not the case, although health concerns remain.
@Flameche actually, it's not cancer so I won't die by sick :)— Tak Fujii????? (@Tak_Fujii) December 17, 2014
What next for the eccentric producer? Fujii indicated he will work freelance while he searches for a new project.
I'll be sticking more in Twitter so I don't leave from you all troops, so don't leave from me, please, I'm begging and yelling.— Tak Fujii????? (@Tak_Fujii) December 17, 2014
