After the announcement that former President Jun Iwasaki had joined GungHo Online Entertainment America as President, XSEED Games has announced they have appointed former Atlus USA headman Shinichi Suzuki as President, CFO, and CEO. Suzuki led Atlus USA from 2004 through 2012 and had previously managed the International Division of Takara Co., Ltd.

"I have always respected XSEED Games, so this was an opportunity I could not pass up. This is an exciting time for the industry and our company, and I look forward to navigating a course of success through the exciting changes in store as we advance XSEEDís publishing efforts by bringing even more highly anticipated titles to market across multiple platforms," stated Suzuki.

XSEED also announced that founding member Ken Berry was promoted to Executive Vice President. Berry will oversee all publishing aspects of XSEED's business. Berry had this to add about Suzuki: "Suzuki-san brings a tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience that will no doubt benefit XSEED Games and our fans. I am looking forward to working with him to further build upon the legacy that we built eight years ago when we formed the company as we position ourselves for an even more exciting future."

XSEED Games has released several RPGs this year, like The Last Story and Unchained Blades, and are slated to publish Ragnarok Odyssey in October.
