While it's a shock to the system to see Yamatosan-san leave N1... it's even more of a shock to read about the possible full defection of a development team.

Guess I'll be keeping my eye on this situation and if true, I hope it doesn't affect N1 too badly.

People are often quick to assume the worst about a situation - often, they think "that's so bad it can't be wrong". Personally, I have no idea what is or isn't happening... so before we all panic, perhaps it would be best to take a few deep breaths and simply ask for an official statement on the matter that could help clear things up?

You might be surprised what you can learn if you ever bother to ask. XD Mind you, NISA's not NIS, so they only know so much... and I think a lot of them are still over in Japan... but yeah. It's always worth a try.

This one still sticks with me. I remember when they were saying they needed D4 to sell well or it would have meant lots of cut-backs or doors closing.

I don't think this will affect them greatly in the long-run but in the short-term it might cause some projects to be put on hiatus or cancelled.

They'll do as any normal developer would at this point. Hire some fresh blood and get back to working on the content they know people love.

It's not like anything we've read would impact their current savings / budgets. I would be surprised if this lead to any sort of closure. (or subsidiaries or the main company)

http://www.ideafintl.com

Idea Factory is establishing an outpost in California. The Tokyo-based publisher announced the creation of Idea Factory International today, which expressly aims to strengthen the company's brands around the globe. Former NIS America president Harusato Akenaga will act as CEO.

Players might be familiar with the group's otaku-centric franchises, which include the Record of Agarest War, Hyperdimension Neptunia, and Hakuoki series.

Until now Idea Factory and its subsidiary Compile Heart has relied on studios such as Aksys Games and NIS America to localize its titles for Western audiences, a practice that figures to change moving forward once Idea Factory International gets off the ground.

Taken from Destructoid
-------------

It's looking like NISA are about to stop publishing Idea Factory / Compile Heart games. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing at the moment though.
