Former Square Enix Employee Arrested For Allegedly Keeping Game Consoles For Resale

A former Square Enix Sales Manager, Koji Takada, has been arrested for allegedly reselling consoles and causing a loss amounting to 1.4 million Yen ($12,374) for Square Enix. According to Jiji Press, Takada would, in the process of making contracts with clients, say that he required consoles (like a 3DS) as it was a necessity for the contract. It is reported that he then sold the consoles on.

The improper ordering and reselling of consoles like this is a violation of Japanese trust law and it is reported that Koji Takada broke the law through his actions between November 2011 and September 2013. Square Enix then brought charges for breaching trust law in December 2015.




  1. So, in essence, it’s basic company theft. When making a deal on behalf of Square, he would get minor goods written into the contract that square didn’t need, then keep those goods which rightfully belonged to Square. Essentially buying himself presents with the company credit card.
