Nintendo enlists Sonic co-creator Hirokazu Yasuhara


For years there has always been a struggle between two famous idols of retro gaming: Sonic and Mario. The rivals have always gone hand-in-hand with their associated companies for decades -- Sonic with Sega, and Mario with Nintendo.  Now the blue dude's co-creator, Hirokazu Yasuhara, has joined up with Nintendo.
In fact, according to Gamasutra, Hirokazu Yasuhara will be joining Nintendo's Software Technology division in Redmond, Washington. What he will be doing there is a mystery, since neither Yasuhara or Nintendo have relesed any details.
Yasuhara joined Sega back in 1988, where he and Yuji Naka birthed the Sonic franchise for Genesis and Saturn.  Since then, he's also worked with Naughty Dog and 2K Sports.  Prior to joining Nintendo, Yasuhara worked briefly at Namco Bandai.
