Rich Bantegui, perhaps better known by his nickname “Fillthierich”, has parted ways with Namco Bandai. No reason was given for the split, but a passionate self-posted resignation on the studio’s Facebook page seems to hint that it’s amicable. The former Community Manager, Bantegui had no experience with the position and had to find his own way with help of the community.
Bantegui was well-liked in his tenure, helping to get various games localized or ported to other consoles. No word on what’s next for Bantegui, but he assured that someone else will fill his position shortly.
