Developer Biography

Usually credited as "Moo Niitani", Masamitsu Niitani was the president of Compile for the entire existence of the company. Unlike other company presidents, he involved himself in the development of games, which explains his list of credits, much longer than that of most other executives. Usually taking a directing or producing role, Niitani also did voice acting on some games. Since the collapse of Compile in 2003, Niitani has worked as president of his new company, Aiky.
