Yuji Naka, Sonic creator, has joined Square Enix

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

Gotta go fast.

Yuji Naka, the creator of Sonic, has joined Square Enix.

The renowned creator has been quiet for a some time, but just this morning announced that he joined game development at Square Enix earlier this month. 

Naka is famous for his involvement in countless Sega titles ranging from the ‘80s through to the 2000s. Over that time he’s been involved with game series like Phantasy Star, Nights, Billy Hatcher and, of course, Sonic. Square Enix are of course most famous for their Final Fantasy series.

His personal studio, Prope, released Rodea the Sky soldier on WiiU and 3DS back in 2015, and it’s not clear if the studio will continue independently.

Naka has announced he’s already working on a new game, but sadly kept the details extremely vague.
