Yusuke Naora is working on Final Fantasy XV, Yoshinori Kitase no longer attached to the project

Long-time Final Fantasy series artist Yusuke Naora joins the ever evolving behemoth that is Final Fantasy XV, according to several outlets present at last week’s Final Fantasy X|X-2 gallery event. Naora – whose resume of works includes the likes of Final Fantasy VII, VIII and X – most recently worked on Final Fantasy Type-0 and joins Hajime Tabata as yet another new face to helm the FFXV project.

Details on his specific involvement remain sparse, but it’s likely he’ll be joining art directors Tomohiro Hasegawa and Takayuki Ohtachi in some capacity.

On a separate note, it looks like Yoshinori Kitase has been officially removed from the project despite his name being originally attached to it as far back as 2008. Kitase notes that he is trying to get a new, separate project started up him himself.
