Hirokazu Yasuhara, Sonic creator, joins Nintendo

Quote:
Sonic Creator Hirokazu Yasuhara Joins Nintendo

Does this mean Mario wins?

There's a new development in that ancient rivalry between Mario and Sonic, Nintendo and SEGA. Okay, fine, so that war was won years ago - but it seems Nintendo was eying some of the talent behind the hedgehog's games all along.

As reported by Gamasutra, Sonic co-creator Hirokazu Yasuhara has assumed a new role at Nintendo. He will be working at Nintendo of America in Redmond, Washington in an as-of-yet undisclosed role.


The man who helped create Sonic is joining Nintendo.
Yasuhara started his career with SEGA in 1988, serving alongside Sonic co-creator Yuji Naka as director, game planner and designer for many of Sonic's classic early games, from the Genesis to the Sega Saturn. He has also spent some time at 2K Sports' Visual Concepts Entertainment division, and also as a senior game designer at Naughty Dog (where he worked on the Jak & Daxter and Uncharted franchises). Most recently he worked for Namco Bandai, helping create Pac-Man Party for the Wii.

What will come out of this new partnership, and exactly what Yasuhara's role is, remains to be seen - but we're eager to find out more. For the latest on all things Nintendo, keep it here on IGN Wii and IGN 3DS.

Also EA has been named Worst Company in America
Thoughts?

Nintendo won't win until Sega goes under.

Which, btw, that may happen sooner than later, given that Sega of America just cut a ton of jobs.

That's pretty damn interesting. And by interesting, I mean it won't affect much in the present.

Does this mean Mario games are going to be bad now? I don't think so, since it says 'undisclosed role', he's probably a toilet cleaner.

That's even worse, now the toilets will be bad. No one likes bad toilets.
