Thunderful - the new company formed by Swedish studios Image & Form and Zoink! Games - has made a key hire in the shape of Ed Valiente, who joins from Nintendo of Europe.

You might remember Ed from the November 2015 Nintendo Direct, where he was brave enough to step in front of camera. He worked in Business Development at Nintendo for almost eight years, and has previously held roles at Rovio, Namco and Xbox. 

He joins Thunderful as Director of Publishing, and we wish him all the best in his new position.
