Kimura and fellow game creator Yasuhiro Wada (Harvest Moon) both departed Marvelous Entertainment and later Grasshopper Manufacture, after less than one year of employ at Goichi Suda's studio.
"Right now, I’m not working with Kimura-san, but he is a good friend," Wada, who is working on the 3DS game Project Happiness at his Toybox Inc. company, told Siliconera. "He has been impressed at smaller games since they have many new ideas.”
Whatever Kimura is working on, we're sure to find out soon.
