Cave producer and development head Makoto Asada has announced he is leaving the company.

Asada announced on the firm’s blog he was leaving, after five years with the firm. He was brought on to help with the firm’s Xbox 360 development branch.

“As some of you may already know, I will be leaving the company of Cave,” he wrote. “This is something that has been decided since August of last year, and it may be a surprising last-minute announcement, but I’d like to thank you all for your support up until now.

“As for what I’ll be doing next, I will be working on next-generation console projects, and it shouldn’t be long until I can announce my next work to you all.”

Asada was in charge of titles such as DoDonPachi Maximum, Deathsmiles, Guwange, and Espgaluda 2 Black Label among others.
