Matsuno Article

GameSetWatch has a great article up outlining the career thus far of Yasumi Matsuno. I'm a huge fan of his work (Ogre Battle, Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story), so it's good to see that he is finally getting some much deserved press. The article gives a nice recounting of his path through the industry. Go read it and then seek out any games he's made asap.

(Also interesting to note from the article is that he is not with SquareEnix anymore. I'll have to dig around and find out if he is just taking a break or working elsewhere...)

[Update: It looks like Yasumi has either joined or consulted for Platinum Game's MadWorld. Wasn't really looking forward to this one, but it will be interesting to see how his magic works on a brand new genre. Link: http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3172821]
