“Thank you for your birthday message,” Naka said in a Twitter message today. “Today I’m 54 years old. How many games will I be able to make by the retirement age, including the original action game that I’m currently making at Square Enix? I’d like to work hard to develop a game that everyone around the world can enjoy.”

Naka is also the founder of Prope, a game development team that has worked on several titles including Ivy the Kiwi?, Fishing Resort, Digimon Adventure, Rodea the Sky Soldier, and various StreetPass games.
