A few years back a little Japanese indie game called Downwell got quite a lot of acclaim around the globe after it launched for smart devices, PC, PS4 and Vita. Mixing simplistic pixel graphics with unique mechanics where you’re encouraged to propel yourself upwards with gunfire, players couldn’t get enough of its frustratingly addictive gameplay loop.

Now it seems even greater things are in store for its creator, Ojiro “Moppin” Fumoto, as he’s revealed via Twitter that he’s joined Nintendo! His other, English feed has also been updated to add “Nintendo” to its description, confirming the move.

We wish him all the best with the new endeavor and can’t wait to see what he gets to work on first!

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.

    I’d like to check out Downwell eventually. I don’t really play games on my iPad, but if there isn’t a Switch port, I’ll get it on my iPad.

    I have to say that it is awesome that he got hired by Nintendo of Japan. I do wonder if he’s gonna make some new IP’s for Nintendo.
