He will be missed. Meanwhile, Toriyama will stay there long after we've been dead for ages.

he got tired of the corruption inside SE..
hope he joins a more ambitious company.

Just give us KH3 and FF15 and you can die in peace SE

Dammit. I don't think we'll ever see the Vagrant Story sequel now...

And that's great, this new Square would ruin it.

wow sad day for SE. His art style really meant a lot to me :( FFXII and all of Ivalice will miss him

Not a good sign for Squenix, people will start to speculate Akihiko is jumping off a sinking ship.

This is just like what happened with Capcom when they started going down hill, good thing is we might see these talented devs getting taken on elsewhere, or even starting their own company ala Keiji Inafune and his new dev company Comcept.

My 2nd fav characters design after Yoshitaka Amano. I love his artstyle for FF Tactics, Tactics Ogre, Vagrant Story, and Bravely Default. I think his the only person that can match the awesomeness of Yoshitaka Amano.

Now...let's see who's the next person that will leave SE. Is it Nomura? Kitase? Tabata? Toriyama? or...all of them. But it will be a very big blow for SE if Nomura leave the company.
