Famitsu rumor: Matsuno leaves Square-Enix

June 28th, 2011 by Tony Garsow

This week’s issue of Famitsu cites that Square-Enix director and father of the Ivalice Alliance Final Fantasy games has left Square-Enix to work at Level 5. He has not been listed on any projects since the remake of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together. Level 5 is known for JRPGs such as White Knight Chronicles, Rogue Galaxy, and the upcoming Ninokuni. Matsuno was supposedly asked to join by Akihiro Hino, Level 5’s CEO.

Keep in mind this is information that has not been confirmed.

Update: Yasumi Matsuno is working with Level-5 but since he is freelance like Hideo Minaba (Designation), Nobuo Uematsu (Smile, Please) and Kazushige Nojima (Stellavista), he doesn’t explicitly work on Square-Enix projects alone. (See: Mad World for Wii in which Matsuno has writing credits). This does not mean that Yasumi Matsuno will not work on projects at Square-Enix in the future. Interestingly enough, Matsuno comments on this twitter here that if given the chance, he would like to make a Final Fantasy Tactics 2 about the 50-Year War.

    He had already left Square Enix back in 2005. Hw has been freelance since then and worked freelance on Tactics Ogre PSP.

    I’m not happy about this news as I wanted him to stay freelance, but I wish him all the best at Level-5.

    no more Ivalice-related games then? :C

  • The_Badass


    There will still be Ivalice games, it’s just that it’s now extremely unlikely Matsuno will be involved with them. After all, FFXII:RW and FFTA2 never had Matsuno work on them at all but they were still set in Ivalice.

    wow he would like to make fftactics 2, that alone is enough to make ffnews headlines. ahh wats wrong with squareenix, i swear they dont like to make money or new fans anymore, lets make this game happen square, along with kingdom hearts 3, a ps3 remake of ff7, all ur ps1 classics realesed on psn such as ff5,ff6, crono, dragon quest 7, also speed up your development process it take ya way to long to make games, im looking at u ffv13, i remeber u over 6 years ago, oh an change versus 13 to final fantasy 15, it deserves its own identity, ahh if only they would listen to there fans they would be on top again !!
