Another Monolith Soft developer departs.

Koji Ishitani

Koji Ishitani, co-producer of Project X Zone and Project X Zone 2, has left Monolith Soft, the developer announced on Twitter.

“As of the end of last week, on March 31, I resigned from Monolith Soft, which I belonged to for about 16 years,” Ishitani said in a tweet. “I was involved with works from Xenosaga Episode I to Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean to Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier EXCEED to Project X Zone 2, but to everyone who supported me and worked with me, and above all else to those who played the games, thank you very much!”

Ishitani isn’t the only developer to leave Monolith Soft with the start of the new fiscal year. Project X Zone director Soichiro Morizumi also announced his leave this weekend.
