Yoshinori Kanada Storyboard Work Being Revived for Final Fantasy XIII-2

Before passing away two yeas back at 57, Kanada had worked on such games as Final Fantasy XI, Hanjuku Heroes, Musashiden II, Final Fantasy IV (DS version), Seiken Densetsu 4 and Final Fantasy XIII. He was also animation supervisor on Final Fantasy The Spirits Within.
On FFXIII, Kanada served as storyboard director, heading up storyboards for the game's pre-rendered movie scenes, real time cut scenes and summon scenes.

Tokita shared a message from FFXIII and XIII-2 director Motomu Toriyama revealing that one piece of unused Kanada content will be revived for XIII-2. Kandada created a storyboard showing Lightning being held by her summon Odin. Although Toriyama personally liked this scene, it ended up not being used, something that Toriyama says he regrets. XIII-2 will have a scene that's similar to this. (Final Fantasy XIII-2, PS3, Xbox 360, Yoshinori Kanada)
