“It’s been roughly a year since I started treatment,” Suehiro said in his Japanese tweet. “I have something to report. I, Swery, have stepped down as company director in Access Games as of August 31st, 2016. What? Took a while to reveal?! This is how it went. I’ll announce something later about what I’m doing next. Thank you for your support!”
