Monster Hunter Producer Promoted Within Capcom

By Ishaan . June 16, 2014 . 10:31am

Capcom have made a couple of changes to their management structure over at their Japanese headquarters—two of the company’s general managers have been promoted.


The first is Nariyuki Nobuyama, who is Head of Consumer Games R&D Human Resources Division and General Manager of R&D Promotion Department. Nobuyama is now a Corporate Officer in addition to those two positions.


The second is a name you’re likely more familiar with—Ryozo Tsujimoto, producer of the Monster Hunter series (pictured above). Tsujimoto is Head of Consumer Games Development Division 3 and General Manager of Department 3, and is now also a Corporate Officer in addition to those positions.


Finally, the company has a new Executive Corporate Officer, Hirokazu Nakabachi, who is in charge of Internal Audit and IT.

    Good for him! He has done an amazign job with the last few Monster Hunter games and I’m looking forward to seeing his progress in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (still don’t know why they’re adding the Ultimate in the western version, but whatever) :D

    • flameraver64

      Even though we didn’t get MH4, would’ve been confusing to call it MH4 in the West but call it MH4G in Japan

  • Go2hell66

    Just as well seeing as MH is one of the only things making capcom money right now. give that man a raise

    in other news Ono just quit his position at capcom vancouver(if only he’d leave capcom for good,..)

    • ishyg

      Why? What’s wrong with him?

    • Ruins72

      Why should he leave? He’s the one who brought us Dragon’s Dogma you know :/

  • landlock

    Yoshinori Ono has also resigned.

    • He hasn’t resigned. He just isn’t involved in Capcom Vancouver projects any more.

    • Just the Vancouver base, probably heading back to Japan more than likely.

  • Yan Zhao

    That smug photograph, lol

    • Namuro

      He’s like “All according to plan… Mwa ha ha ha!”

  • 永次

    I hope he never leaves MH as producer, he is the best Capcom producer.

    • Judgephoenix

      Yea that is how I felt about it. Being promoted seems like less work on MH :/?

      • ronin4life

        But if he is maintaining all his positions and titles?
        Sounds like he may have MORE work overall… This is Japan after all.

  • Abel_Nightroad

    He is the son of the president of Capcom, right ?

  • H_Floyd

    But what about Makoto Ikehara, variably the producer/director/author/planner of the Breath of Fire series?

  • Namuro

    Nice! You totally deserved it, Tsujimoto-san!

    Well then, I’m looking forward to more MonHun goodness from you!
