Yasumi Matsuno, whose past works include Final Fantasy XII and Vagrant Story, has left his position at Level-5, which he joined last June, following the international release of his 3DS download game Crimson Shroud.
“Good morning,” said Matsuno on Twitter. “The weather this morning in the city center is clear, 16 degrees. Doesn’t the warm sunlight feel nice? Well, I’m sorry to report, but due to personal reasons, next month I’ll be retiring from Level-5. Having finished production of 3DSWare domestically and in North America and Europe, it’s at a good point time-wise for me to retire.”
He continued: “Even though it was for a short period of time, I was able to work hard without any gross mistakes. I am extremely grateful for the gift of genial teaching I received from everyone. Over and over again, thank you so much. I plan on taking a break for a while. I’m very thankful to have your support from now on.”
