Yuji Naka: Prope Has Downsized To A One-Person Company

The video game studio Prope that was created by Sonic creator Yuji Naka and ten members of the Sonic Team has now been downsized to a one person studio. You may remember that Yuji Naka joined Square Enix last year as part of their development team. The news was revealed by Square Enix who contacted Yuji Naka via Twitter to find out what happened to the company. Here is his reply:

“I was asked this and as my reply, Prope in April 2017 underwent a downsizing and became a one-man company. Buddy Monster,  which reaches its seventh year in June this year, is being taken care of by the company running the game. If it’s alright with you, it would make me happy if you were to play Prope’s apps and 3DS’ Streetpass Mii Plaza’s Monster Mansion and Ultimate Angler; and the game which I helped program partially for the first time in around 20 years-“

“If it’s alright with you, it would make me happy if you were to play Prope’s apps and 3DS’ Streetpass Mii Plaza’s Monster Mansion and Ultimate Angler; and the game which I helped program partially for the first time in around 20 years, Legend of Coin.

At its core, my work at Prope is pretty much just writing up paperwork and related things during Saturday and Sunday. On regular work days, I’m making games that I hope people will enjoy with everyone at Square Enix.”
