Takeshi Yamazaki has announced that he’s leaving Capcom after 15 years. Yamazaki worked on the Ace Attorney series since its earliest days, and has been a director / head writer on the Ace Attorney Investigations titles plus Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice.

“Although leaving a company is always painful, I like to think of this as ‘graduating’,” Yamazaki said in a tweet translated by Court-Records. “I’m truly glad I was able to make games and meet the Ace Attorney series at Capcom.”

Yamazaki intends to continue working with game development, but also intends to take on new challenges.

It’s been three years since the arrival of Monster Hunter Stories on 3DS – or four if you want to look back on the original Japanese release. The title hasn’t been forgotten though, as it was announced today that new Funko Pops are in the works. Lute & Navirou, Ratha, Avinia, and Frostfang will all be receiving new figures.

This isn’t the first time Monster Hunter Stories has been given official merchandise. Capcom produced a few amiibo figures, though they never left Japan.

There’s no word yet on when the Monster Hunter Stories Funko Pops are launching. However, they’re expected to be available “soon”.
