Even as work progresses on Shinji Mikami's Vanquish
for Platinum Games, Mikami's own studio, Tango
, is growing toward Mikami's stated goal of around 100 staffers. Platinum's Hideki Kamiya revealed via Twitter
that Shigenori Nishikawa
, who directed MadWorld
for Platinum and did design work on Resident Evil 4
and Dino Crisis 2
at Capcom, has left Platinum for Tango. Nishikawa was one of the founders of Platinum.
Nishikawa will join former Grasshopper Manufacture
sound director Masafumi Takada and art directors Ryosuke Kaiba and Naoki Katakai at Tango. The new studio has yet to announce any projects.
