As I understand it, Sega and D4 Enterprise owns all Compile properties now.

That explains why the Puyo Puyo which I bought for the PS4 is from Sega.

He has been interviewed a lot recently. Even the retro game store BEEP has a magazine issue dedicated completely to Compile, which includes interviews:

By the way, I already met with Niitani-san, as you can see from this photo. I now have two hours worth of audio that needs to be transcribed to English, so it will take a while before the interview will be out. I will let you guys know when it's online.

Cool picture, it's great to see the man behind a name we saw many times on game endings 30 years ago Smile Of course nice to see you too MP83, good effort to bend your knees in order to fit in the photograph Wink

So that's not a text/email interview but a real interview after all? (must say I'm a bit jealous here...).

I'm really curious about the interview. Great initiative! And Masamitsu NiItani also look like he had enjoyed the meeting.

Thanks for the interest. Smile I don't know yet the exact content of the interview since Niitani-san replied in Japanese, but my English-speaking Japanese friend, who came to aid me with the interview, assured that there's lots of interesting information. Hopefully this all translates well to English, whenever I manage to find a professional translator. Two hours of audio is a lot to translate. It will take a while.

I'm really glad that I got to meet with Niitani-san in person, and in his home no less. This was definitely the highlight of my Japan trip. He was even awesome enough to autograph some of the Compile games that I managed to buy during my trip. ^^
