New indie outfit for Keita Takahashi

Keita Takahashi, the inimitable game designer who recently broke ties with Namco Bandai, has formed a new independent entertainment company with his wife.

The Katamari Damacy creator, now studying English, said his new company – called Uvula – will “mainly work with music and video games”.

His new business partner and spouse, said Takahashi, is a music composer.

“We want to widen our horizons,” he said, “so we are glad if we make something new with you.”

As a foretoken to this new direction for the Noby Noby Boy developer, Takahashi is still in the process of building a child’s playground in Nottingham.

“I became a freelancer in October,” he writes on his new website.

“I want to continue fun activities and help somebody with fun people of the world.”
