“Happy New Year, everyone,” Kageyama wrote on social media site Twitter. “I’m sorry to raise a personal matter, but I left GAME FREAK, who has been good to me these past six years and seven months, on December 31 to start a new music brand called Spica Musica.”

He shared that his colleagues at Game Freak wre supportive of his decision, and that he hopes to once again work with them in future.
