From its shaky departure from Square Enix to the catastrophic launch of Balan Wonderworld, the legendary creator of Sonic, Yuji Naka, has not been going through its best moment in recent times. Added to this is his arrest last november, when he was accused of using privileged information in a case of buying and selling shares within Square Enix. Now, in the middle of the process, Naka has admitted guilt and he has made it clear that it is evident that he knew that information from which, later, he tried to extract economic advantage. It has been the Japanese medium denfaminicogame the one who has made public the first statements of the creator of the famous blue hedgehog.
“There is no doubt that knew the facts about the game before it was announced and that I bought the shares”, Yuji Naka explained in the first session of the trial held in the Tokyo District Court according to this source. The games involved in this case are Dragon Quest Tact by Aiming and Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier by ATeam, which has already ceased its activity. The indictment alleges that Naka used his inside knowledge of these projects to buy shares in both companies before both projects were made public. The intention, of course, would be to sell them later at a higher price.

Since Naka would have taken advantage of his Square Enix membership back then to be able to make use of this inside informationwas arrested last November and now, just three months later, the creator of Sonic has admitted his guilt, although we will have to wait for the development of the judicial process to see what the matter ends up with and what the penalty could be for one of the most illustrious and sadly controversial figures in recent times in the video game industry.
