‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ creator Yuji Naka arrested over insider trading

Tokyo prosecutors on Friday arrested Yuji Naka, the 57-year-old creator of the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, over alleged insider trading in shares of a game-maker.

Naka, while employed at game-maker Square Enix, allegedly purchased 10,000 shares in Aiming for about ¥2.8 million in January 2020 based on insider information about a smartphone-based online game being developed jointly by the two firms.
