Fukio "MTJ" Mitsuji (creator of Bubble Bobble) dead?

Found out this tragic news on a Japanese message board. Apparently, Fukio "MTJ" Mitsuji (三辻富貴朗), the designer of Bubble Bobble, Popils, and other games, passed away back in December.

There are no news articles about this that I can find. From what I can tell, this all stems from a post on a message board on Japanese social networking site Mixi.

The guy had passed away on December 11 last year after suffering from kidney failure and a heart attack which left him in a comatose state before death.

Is there a proper bio on the guy, or is he regarded as just an "employee"?
