Designer Yasumi Matsuno, the critically acclaimed developer famous for Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy XII, has started working with Level-5.
According to Andriasang Matsuno made the move because he felt a "common vision" with Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino.
The article is short on details about Matsuno’s first project for the company, but he confirmed that it’s not a continuation of his previous projects like Tactics Ogre, and that he hopes it will appeal to younger players.
Hino said he believed the hire would allow Level-5 to do things they hadn’t before, and that he saw Matsuno as a "creator amongst creators."
Level-5 is the Japanese developer and publisher responsible for titles like Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King and the Professor Layton series.
