This time the arrest relates to potential insider trading relating to confidential knowledge of mobile title Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier.

According to a new report by Asahi the developer, as well as former Square Enix employee Taisuke Sazaki, was arrested for allegedly investing in ATeam Entertainment based on non-public knowledge of Square Enix’s future plans to work with the studio on the Final Fantasy mobile game.

It was alleged at the time of his first arrest that Naka was also implicated in a similar scheme surrounding the mobile game Dragon Quest Tact, developed by Aiming.

It’s alleged that before Dragon Quest Tact was announced, Naka – who was working on Balan Wonderworld for Square Enix at the time – purchased approximately 10,000 shares of Aiming stock for around ¥2.8 million ($20,000).
