Hisaki "Saki" Nimiya (荷宮 尚樹) joined Sega in 1986, primarily undertaking English co-ordination research and development. His first notable contribution was Columns design features; following this, he became a planning section manager of AM3. Nimiya played a significant role in the creation of titles such as Dennou Senki Net Merc, where English communication with developers from Virtuality was key.[1]

English co-ordination duties carried out by Nimiya at Sega included script editing, in-house research of ongoing trends and preferences in American games, and communication with overseas sound collaborators on titles like Sonic the Hedgehog 3. His voice can additionally be heard in several of the company's late 1990s arcade titles, beginning with Manx TT Super Bike. Some of his most senior-level work was seen in 1998's Dirt Devils, where he is credited with General Game Design.

Nimiya's last involvement with Sega was for Wild Riders during 2001, though one further credit to his name was given for previous work in the 2010 Wii rerelease Gunblade NY & LA Machineguns.
