The Pokemon studio Creatures Inc. has had a sudden change of leadership. Creatures Inc. is a Japanese video game company that is affiliated with Nintendo, GameFreak, and The Pokemon Company. Both the company’s CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara and president Hirokazu Tanaka have been swapped out.
The Pokemon Company looks to be unaffected by these changes
As noted by Serebii owner Joe Merrick through a tweet, the new president and CEO of Creatures Inc. will be Yuji Kitano, while the executive vice president will be Tomotaka Komaru.
Fortunately, these changes will not impact The Pokemon Company much. Ishihara, who fans may recognize as the public face for many Pokemon Presents live streams, will remain the CEO and President of The Pokemon Company. As such, this could mean that he is focusing on his role at one studio instead of being the CEO of multiple ones.
Creatures Inc. is still working on a sequel to the 3DS Detective Pikachu game, according to the studio’s official website despite it not having an update in quite a long time. It is also responsible for creating in-game models for Pokemon games like Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
