The legendsry designer behind Final Fantasy Tactics and Vagrant Story has confirmed his resignation and expressed his thanks for fans of his work.
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.
squarenix is nt going very well...they lose talented people,they make crap games that cost much (FFXIII the whole series), exclusives go multipatform (and we all know that there will be degradation in quality no matter what ..see FFXIII), wrong management in faulty games (why they continue FFXIV online) generally they lose their integrity among fans very fast
Good news actually, Square is no longer a place for a man of his talent. Hope he stays in the business and find a better home
All the talented ppl left SE but I don't care much & I think that this might be better for them, their talent wasted on this sh1thole SE haven't make anything worth playing for ages now the real prob is when those talented ppl decide to work out of SONY camp like Tetsuya Takahashi did with Xenoblade... the day I learn Nintendo bought Monolith Soft it was one of the worst for me as a gamer, I think SONY must start doing something to keep those talents in their side something to show them that PlayStation is the place to be for JRPGs both for gamers & creators as it was on PS1/PS2 days for start they must create a sequel of one of their own JRPGs Legend of Dragoon 2 / Legaia 3 any1?
