Famed Sega programmer Rieko Kodama dies at 58 | Biden News


The game industry suffered a gigantic loss. Rieko Kodama, the legendary Sega programmer also known as Phoenix Rie, has died at 58. Her cause of death has not been specified.

As reported by IGN, Kodama died sometime back in May of this year, but her death was not made public until this week. Rumors started when a memory message was spotted in the credits of Mega Drive Mini 2, before Sega producer Yosuke Okunari confirmed her death earlier this year. “How do you understand,” Okunari replied to a tweet asking if Kodama was dead. “We respected her.”
