Hatchet buried: Tecmo Koei wishes Itagaki well

0

Aww! How sweet. It seems that they're all over the sour split drama when bad ass game maker Tomonobu Itagaki left Tecmo awhile back, taking much of Team Ninja with him. There was a lawsuit, unpaid wages and bonuses and threats of katana use. I made that last one up.

Valhalla Game Studios is Itagaki's new gig, and they're working on some super secret new game right now. On Valhalla's webpage you'll find a bunch of congratulatory messages from some of gaming's biggest names. Tim Schafer and Cliffy B dropped in some nice words. But scroll down and you'll see a message from Kakihara Yasuharu, the new chairman of Koei Tecmo holdings.

"Congratulations on establishing a new company," Yasuharu wrote. "I wish your company’s future prospects will be prosperous."

That's really nice, Tecmo Koei! Look at you!

They could have been really catty if they wanted. I imagine something like this:

Hey crater man, good luck with your boob games or whatever. I'll be over here making millions.
