Yasumi Matsuno Leaves Level 5

In what can only be described as a very short diversion, Yasumi Matsuno has left Level-5 only about a year after he had joined the company. His only contribution was serving as the lead game designer of the 3DS game Crimson Shroud, originally released as part of the Guild01 compilation in Japan.

"Good morning. I'm sorry to report, but due to personal reasons, next month I'll be retiring from Level-5," he said on his Twitter account. "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."

There has been no word on how long he plans on taking his vacation, or whether it will even be a permanent one.  One can only hope that one of the best writers that the genre has ever had won't spend too much time away. After all, who else is going to help make Final Fantasy Tactics 2?
