Moved to FarmVille: Former Tecmo Koei boss at Zynga Japan

Wow, what a move. First you're at the house of boobs, ninjas and warriors, and then you move to a place where crops and farmer hats are the most popular things. 

I'm sure former Tecmo Koei boss Kenji Matsubara got over the difference in coolness quick. It's no secret that Zynga and their Facebook games are a huge success. The company recently expanded to Japan, and Matsubara is now heading up operations there. He stepped down from his position at Tecmo Koei last year and kept quiet about his plans until now. A press release says that current CEO Robert Goldberg will step aside for Matsubara, and will likely take up some other position in the company.

Now let's get some ninjas and volleyball in FarmVille. Or Chinese warriors in CityVille.
