One of Square Enix’s best character designers is leaving ⊟
I love Akihiko Yoshida’s work. You’ve seen his distinctive style in Bravely Default, Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy XII, The Four Heroes of Light, the Final Fantasy III remake, and other games. Look at this gallery — everything’s beautiful!
He announced his departure in a personal message printed in The Art of Bravely, a Bravely Default art book that released in Japan today. Though he’ll no longer be at the company, Yoshida expects to continue his relationship with Square Enix and work on the Bravely Default series. In fact, we saw his name attached to the Bravely Second announcement yesterday.
Hey, I would wear this, even if that Game Boy looks huge. Japanese online shop [den] is selling these in Black and Blue variations for ¥2,100 each, or around $20. It has a few other dope tees in its catalog, like one that’s just the error screen when you boot up a Game Boy without a cartridge.
[den] also sells these cute stickers that make the back of your iPhone look like the back of a Game Boy — it’s a neat alternative to those Game Boy iPhone cases I see everywhere on Tumblr and Instagram nowadays. I wonder if you can draw on the sticker to put your tiny cartridge of choice in there.
