Polyphony Digital Employees Unharmed by Japanese Earthquakes

Gran Turismo Series 73 March 11, 2011 by

As you’ve probably heard by now, Japan was rocked by a large earthquake and tsunami early this morning. Understandably, I’ve received questions from many other fans concerned about the safety of Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital. Fortunately, Kazunori tweeted not long after the event to report no major damage or significant injuries at either of the company’s studios.

Although things reportedly got pretty scary in Tokyo where Polyphony is headquartered (check out this amazing video of swaying skyscrapers in the city), most of the severe devastation is concentrated in northern Japan. GTPlanet’s thoughts and prayers are with the Japanese people during this difficult time.

To help with the relief efforts, you can text the word “REDCROSS” to 90999 to instantly donate $10 to the American Red Cross.
