Taku Sugioka is a programmer and game designer employed by Intelligent Systems. Sugioka has been heavily involved in the WarioWare series and has since directed Pushmo and its sequels.


Taku Sugioka was brought in to help speed up WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!'s development, as director Goro Abe knew him to be a skilled programmer.[1]

He worked on the Korean localization of WarioWare: Touched![1] After completing work on it, he was one of the first people contacted by Goro Abe about developing WarioWare: D.I.Y. Taku Sugioka was interested by the game's concept although was unsure of its feasibility, but Abe managed to convince him. Later in development, Sugioka lobbied for the game to be shipped on a NAND cartridge and personally debugged the format when a glitch threatened to delay the game. As he was heavily involved with programming duties, he did not design any microgames.[1]
