In a recent report from mobile game development Mobcast, Shinichi Hanamoto — a former Konami Digital Entertainment executive — has left Konami to work with the aforementioned mobile development group.

Hanamoto was originally a senior contents officer until his promotion to general manager in 2014. As many fans may know, Konami is the licencer and distributor of the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game.

He is the first hire under Mobcast’s new “pro contract” project in which the company recruits highly experienced and skilled, offer them a high degree of freedom, and provide royalties based on results of their work.
