Yasumi Matsuno jumps to Level-5

Yasumi Matsuno, creator of Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy Tactics and Vagrant Story has taken a position in the ranks of Level-5. Level-5 is responible for RPGs such as Dark Cloud and White Knight Chronicles as well as more casual titles such as Inazuma Eleven and the Professor Layton series.

Matsuno was personally invited to the outfit by Level-5 founder and president Akihiro Hino, who said it'd offer the designer an opportunity to work on stuff he's never had a chance to before, according to Famitsu.

While neither Hino nor Matsuno commented in depth on what they might work on, Hino stated that it won't take two years or so for the next Matsuno project to come out and that it could be "something that the nieces and nephews of Matsuno fans might also enjoy."

Who else is excited?
