Little King’s Story Creator Starts His Own Company, Onion Games

By Ishaan . July 2, 2012 . 8:30am

At one point in their careers Harvest Moon creator, Yasuhiro Wada, and Little King’s Story creator, Yoshiro Kimura, both left Marvelous Entertainment (now Marvelous AQL)  to go join Grasshopper Manufacture. That move didn’t quite work out, and Wada and Kimura left Grasshopper’s employ in August 2011, less than a year after they joined.


Wada went on to create his own company, Toybox Inc., who are working on a Nintendo 3DS game titled Project Happiness. Toybox are also working in collaboration with Marvelous AQL and Access Games to produce a director’s cut version of Deadly Premonition for the PlayStation 3. Kimura, however, was unaccounted for until this past weekend.


On Sunday, Kimura announced via Facebook that he, too, has established his own company, which he calls Onion Games. You can access the Onion Games website here, but there’s not much to see, as it’s still under construction.


Wada and Kimura are good friends, but they aren’t working together again just yet. When we asked Wada if the two would collaborate again, he told us: “Right now, I’m not working with Kimura-san, but he is a good friend. He has been impressed at smaller games since they have many new ideas.”

  • I sure hope their games make me cry.

    I can’t wait to see what he will make. I would love if he would work with SCEJ to make a cool Vita game. The Vita needs more of his kind of games. Best of luck his work in the past has been great so I can’t wait to play his new game.

  • I’m guessing he’ll be going the portable route then if he’s interested in smaller games, but then again maybe he’ll throw us a curve ball and go iOS or something instead.

    I can’t say enough good things about this guy. Just following him on Twitter makes it obvious that he really wants to make games that come from his heart. He is passionate and sincere and super awesome. I’m gonna follow whatever he does and I hope other people do too.
