Sonic co-creator Yuji Naka has returned to X after being convicted of insider trading, accusing Dragon Quest producer Yu Miyake of lying during the trial.

The details:

  • Last year, Naka pleaded guilty to insider trading while at Square Enix, receiving a 30-month prison sentence, a four-year suspended sentence, and two fines totaling more than a million dollars.

  • Naka has now posted on X for the first time since his arrest in November 2022, accusing Miyake of lying in court documents in response to the producer's involvement in the recent Square reshuffle. “Finally. I was hoping he would be gone soon because he is the kind of person who would submit a note with a lie (with evidence) to a court of law,” Naka wrote. “I have never met him, but the new [Square] president might be a good person.”

  • It's unclear what Naka is referring to exactly, but after his arrest, it was claimed that he bought shares in Aiming after learning that the developer was working on a mobile title called Dragon Quest Tact before it was publicly announced.
