Before his career at Capcom, he worked with Irem on Spartan X, better known in the West as Kung Fu Master. He joined SNK in 1988 after he had finished directing the first Street Fighter game with Hiroshi Matsumoto. Leaving SNK due to feeling the need to take responsibility for the coming dire situation at the time, he went on to found Dimps in 2000 when core staff of SNK also resigned after him, expecting Nishima to have some sort of plan. With the help of key people from Sammy (now Sega Sammy), Bandai Namco Games and CSK, he started Sokiac which was later renamed Dimps. He is sometimes credited as "Piston Takashi" or "T. Nishiyama".Takashi Nishiyama at WikipediaTakashi Nishiyama at TV TropesProfile at IMDbProfile at MobyGames
