No way are you kidding me?! He was easily the most talented person they still had on staff. HUGE setback for Square Enix. Now I guess it's Nomura designing everything again. That's how it kind of goes for them though, really hard time retaining quality talent.

And thus the world fell into the Darkness of Belts and Zippers for-evermore.

Upside: characters in Square Enix games will have noses again.

There's more to him than belts and zippers. He did make the KH games after all.

I wonder what exactly lead to the break. I'm not sure exactly how much influence lead to the break, but SE has been declining for quite a while now. The heyday of them making great jrpg's consistantly has gone. Now it's so much straight up fanservice games (like Theatrhythm) and iphone crap.
