Sonic Co-Creator Yuji Naka working on original action game at Square Enix

We’ve known since last year that Yuji Naka had joined Square Enix, where he said he was returning as a programmer for the first time since 1997. Now he updated us on Twitter with a message on his birthday:

“Thank you for your birthday message. Today I’m 54 years old. How many games will I be able to make by the retirement age, including the original action game that I’m currently making at Square Enix? I’d like to work hard to develop a game that everyone around the world can enjoy.”

It will be interesting to see what Yuji Naka has in store for us in the near future, even if it isn’t under SEGA’s publishing arm.

Yuji Naka set to reveal his HD action game

Yuji Naka started his own company, Prope, which started its relationship with SEGA by making Let’s Tap and Let’s Catch. Even though the games where not huge budget releases or sold a billion copies, most fans liked them.

Now after releasing some mobile games and the Wii/DS port of one of those mobile games, Ivy the Kiwi? Yuji Naka is getting ready to announce his upcoming HD game.

“I’d love to talk more about it but my publisher is telling me not to (laughs). All I can say is it’s going to be a very original action game based in the sky and I will provide more information within this month.” – Yuji Naka

Should be interesting, I have been waiting for him to announce this ‘action title’ he has been teasing since Let’s Tap.
