Yasuhiro Wada has wandered back out of obscurity, at the head of a brand new company called ToyBox Inc.

Wada announced the new company via Twitter, as translated by Siliconera.

Little is known about the new company as yet, but it is assumed to be a developer – the bare-bones website declares Toybox Inc is “gaming for Love, Peace and Earth”.

Wada is probably best know for his work on the Harvest Moon series, but left franchise developer Marvellous in 2010. This new company is the first we’ve heard of Wada’s activities since a brief executive stint at Grasshopper Manufacture alongside fellow Marvellous veteran Yoshiro Kimura.
