Oh, Tecmo. First you piss off the man behind your best games, Tomonobu Itagaki. Then he quits, and talks some sh*t about your company in the process. Of course, your shares plummet after Itagaki leaves. On top of all of that, now your employees are suing you! How is a gag-order going to help you save any face now?
Even after all of this drama, Tecmo has filed a pre-case gag-order with the Tokyo District Court for Itagaki, says Kotaku. Here’s what Mr. Ninja Gaiden is prohibited from doing until the case:
• Disclosing or leaking information regarding Tecmo’s game software, sales, development or any other company secrets
• Using newspapers, magazines and the internet to criticize company software and company employees
• Obstructing the company’s business through slanderous remarks to third parties
• Do not accept interviews regarding Tecmo or talk to the press about the company
No worries, Itagaki. We can cover the trash talking for you!
What is your opinion of Tecmo now? What kind of info could he even leak now?
