Capcom producer and all-around nice guy Ben Judd is leaving the legendary game company to head up a new Japanese division of Digital Development Management.

The agency is focusing on recruiting Japanese game talent for work with U.S. and European firms.

"Ben's breadth of publisher experience in Japan combined with our ever-expanding client roster allows DDM to generate and facilitate projects for publishers, brand and license holders, and investors now on a worldwide basis," says DDM founder and managing partner Jeff Hilbert.

Judd worked as a producer on such games as Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Bionic Commando, and games in the Mega Man series. He was also frequently seen at Capcom press events as the translator for famed game designer Keiji Inafune, who also left Capcom in 2010.
