Sonic Creator Yuji Naka Returns To Social Media, Accuses Former Dragon Quest Producer Yu Miyake Of Lying

Yuji Naka, the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog, has return to social media following a lengthy hiatus after he was handed a 30-month suspended prison sentence and fined $1.2 million.

He didn’t hang about though, as Naka-san quickly accused Yu Miyake, a major producer on the Dragon Quest franchise, of lying as part of his insider trading trial. Last week, it was revealed that Miyake-san was reassigned at Square Enix to oversee the publisher’s smartphone business.

Back in September 2021, Naka revealed that he was working as an indie developer after leaving Square Enix, at which point he confirmed he was developing a mobile project.
