Final Fantasy Art Director is Leaving Square Enix
Today, Final Fantasy Art Director, Isamu Kamikokuryo, announced on his Twitter that he has resigned from Square Enix. He expressed his gratitude to the company for the opportunity to work with them on a few different Final Fantasy titles, including Final Fantasy XV. After almost 20 years with the company, it seems like Isamu Kamikokuryo wants a simple change in scenery and inspiration.
Isamu Kamikokuryo’s career with Square Enix began with Final Fantasy X, and then he continued his work at the Art Director for Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-3, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and the latest, Final Fantasy XV!
He isn’t the only Art Director to leave the company recently, as Yosuke Naora, who also worked in the same capacity on Final Fantasy XV, left at the end of September last year. Of course, these changes are quite normal after completing large projects that these directors have given all of their time and energy to over the course of a few years.
Whatever Isamu Kamikokuryo decides to do in the future, we’d like to wish him good luck and thank him for his dedication and amazing work to the Final Fantasy franchise over the years. It definitely won’t be last we’ll see of him!
