Having first begun his career as a game designer in 1994, working for Capcom on the the first Resident Evil game, Hideki Kamiya has contributed greatly to the video game scene for the last 29 years. Involved as the director for Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry, which actually began its development cycle as what was meant to be Resident Evil 4, only to become its own thing, Hideki Kamiya would go on to form Seeds, Inc. on August 1, 2006, along with Shinji Mikami, and Atsushi Inaba.
2008 Seeds, Inc. would then go on to be rebranded as PlatinumGames and what a fantastic 17 years it has been since, thanks to the likes of Bayonetta, The Wonderful 101, Nier: Automata, Star Fox Zero, Astral Chain and even Final Fantasy XVI, which they provided additional work on.
Hideki Kamiya might not have been directly involved in the 22 games and The Wonderful 101 remaster that PlatinumGames worked on in the last few years, but he is still personally responsible for a great number of great titles we have received over the years and that is why it is sad to see him depart PlatinumGames on October 12, 2023 as announced by PlatinumGames earlier today.
All we can do in the meantime is wish him all the best and thank him for all that he has done for this industry. Thank you Hideki-san.
