Working Designs’ localisation of Lunar: The Silver Star Saga Complete is one of the most sought after PlayStation releases, due in large to the fantastic package the publisher put together when releasing the game, which included a few trinkets, an art book and CD soundtrack.

Miyaji founded Game Arts with his brother Yoichi at just 19. He worked on many games at the company, including Silpheed and Lunar: The Silver Star for the Mega CD, Alissa Dragoon for the Mega Drive and the Grandia series, which he created.
In 2000, Miyaji broke away from Game Arts and founded G-Mode, which primarily worked on mobile games until it gained control of arcade developer Data East’s back catalogue in 2004.
G-Mode did not comment on the cause of Miyaji’s death. Ryu Okoriyama, CEO of Gaia Holdings will replace Miyaji as G-Mode’s CEO.
