Team Ninja has confirmed that it has welcomed a new recruit in the form of Masaaki Yamagiwa, the producer behind the critically acclaimed PS4 Blood transferred.
In addition to his work on Bloodborne, Yamagiwa-san also worked on films such as Deracine and Tokyo Jungle before leaving SIE Japan Studio in February 2021.
He was among many people who left Sony’s Japanese team earlier this year, before the format owner decided to effectively close the team, leaving only Team Asobi.
Yamagiwa’s new position on Team Ninja was revealed when Shuehi Yoshida tweeted overnight with Bloodborne producer and Nioh series director Fumihiko Yasuda.
