Ed Ridgeway is a senior project coordinator at Nintendo of America. Ridgeway has worked at NOA since 1992 and was a quality assurance tester for many years, and still is. He has also contributed to game design for certain titles. Ridgeway was one of several testing coordinators for Metroid Prime Trilogy. Despite Ridgeway working at Nintendo of America, his credit is only present in the PAL version of the Trilogy. The same applies to Dan Awesome.
