Game Designer Ryosuke Yoshida Leaves Capcom
One of Capcom’s game designers, Ryosuke Yoshida, has left the company to pursue next-gen games abroad. Yoshida was with Capcom when Devil May Cry 5 and Monster Hunter were in the works and he’s enthusiastic about more upcoming projects with a mystery developer. Yoshida was with Capcom for twelve years and will continue to work from Japan until COVID-19 restrictions are reduced. The developer hasn’t confirmed which company he’s headed for but he will be leaving Japan for his upcoming projects. Resident Evil 3 Remake is one of Capcom’s most recent titles and it’s available for PS4, Xbox One and PC right now.
“On a personal note,I quit Capcom on July 4. I was very happy to be able to develop for 12 years at Capcom,” said Ryosuke Yoshida on a recent Twitter post. “From now on,I will leave Japan and go overseas to develop games for next-gen. (I work from home in JP until COVID-19 calms down.) I will continue doing my best!” While he was with Capcom, Ryosuke Yoshida worked on both game design and combat design for titles such as Monster Hunter and Devil May Cry. Yoshida was also credited in the “special thanks” section of the credits for Resident Evil 5.
While working remotely from Japan for his new studio may not be ideal, it’s likely that Ryosuke Yoshida will relocate when COVID-19 is behind us. Ryosuke Yoshida hasn’t confirmed his new home yet but his game design and combat design will continue to be appreciated in his future titles considering his experience with Monster Hunter and Devil May Cry. After twelve years at Capcom, it’ll be interesting to see what’s next for Ryosuke Yoshida.
