Project X Zone co-producer Koji Ishitani leaves Monolith Soft

Koji Ishitani, co-producer of Project X Zone and Project X Zone 2, has left Monolith Soft, the developer announced on Twitter.

“As of the end of last week, on March 31, I resigned from Monolith Soft, which I belonged to for about 16 years,” Ishitani said in a tweet. “I was involved with works from Xenosaga Episode I to Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean to Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier EXCEED to Project X Zone 2, but to everyone who supported me and worked with me, and above all else to those who played the games, thank you very much!”

Ishitani isn’t the only developer to leave Monolith Soft with the start of the new fiscal year. Project X Zone director Soichiro Morizumi also announced his leave this weekend.

Isn’t this is how most PC users feel? That is why they have their head far up a motherboards socket, they fear the world and escape to 0’s and 1’s; thank god for nerds who fear outside or we wouldn’t have games /s

Too much self-depreciation for too little humor.

Maybe I will learn something from someone that saw fit to use "nerd" in their comment with a forward slash 's'... Seriously, I am not making this stuff up, it's actually happening.

The biggest news should be him talking about wanting to make a more traditional jrpg. I'd love to see this, prefer it as well

Yeah, something I can actually play. I do everything on Story mode essentially. Can't play any difficult games unfortunately. I always loved the aesthetic of From Software's games and wish they were a little more accessible.
