PlayStation's Kutaragi heads to Grasshopper owner Marvelous

Former Sony chairman and the man widely described as the ‘father of the PlayStation’, Ken Kutaragi, has been named as an external director at Japanese game publisher Marvelous.

A report on Nikkei (translated by SGCafe) claims that Kutaragi will be bringing his years of experience to help speed up developments in the company’s business at home and overseas. 

Marvelous AQL has been building its business gradually since the merger of separate games firms, Marvelous Entertainment, AQ Interactive and Livewire in October 2011. In 2012, the Harvest Moon and Rune Factory publisher formed a European subsidiary and, earlier this week, renamed its US publishing arm, XSeed, as Marvelous USA.
