On the day of release of his Ninja Gaiden 2, Tomonobu itagaki has announced that he is not only leaving Team Ninja, but he is suing the president of Tecmo as well! Itagaki said he was claiming JPY 148 million (USD 1.42 million) in damages over "unpaid completion bonuses" and for "disingenuous statements" made towards him. Apparently, the president refused to pay bonuses that him and his team were entitled to. The president told Itagaki that is he wasn't happy to quit. So he did. More info when we have it.

"The conduct of Tecmo Co, Ltd and its president Yoshimi Yasuda towards me has been unbefitting of a publicly-listed company. I have filed this lawsuit with a strong intent to question the social responsibility of Tecmo Co, Ltd and its President Yoshimi Yasuda," he added.
