Yusuke Hashimoto has announced that he has left PlatinumGames, bring the 13 years that he has spent working for the Japanese developer to an end.

In that time, he worked as a producer on Bayonetta, before becoming a director for both Star Fox Zero and Bayonetta 2 – and even went on to host a Nintendo Direct for the climactic action sequel.

“This tweet will be a little more personal than usual,” Hashimoto starts. “Yesterday, January 31st, was my last day at PlatinumGames. The memories I made during my 13 years at Platinum, working with dozens of talented individuals on Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2, and Star Fox Zero, are priceless to me.

“Let me take this opportunity to share my thanks with anyone who has worked with me, supported me, or played my games. I hope to take the experiences I gained at Platinum and use them on whatever I work on in the future. Thank you again.”
