Crimson Shroud developer and former Square Enix developer Yasumi Matsuno has taken to Twitter to alleviate fan’s fears that health issues were behind his departure from Level-5. According to Matsuno, he is “in perfect health,” and is “just taking a little time to recharge before my next project.” Concerns over returning health issues seems to prevail on the Internet after his departure was announced earlier this week. It was assumed the same health issues which caused him to leave Square Enix in 2005 had returned. Thankfully, that is not the case. Via Siliconera.
