Newsbrief: Akihiko Yoshida, the veteran video game artist who has designed characters for Square Enix for nearly two decades, has announced his departure from the company in a rather unique manner.

The designer, who joined Square Soft back in 1995 and has worked on titles like Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, announced he is leaving the company via an art book that came with the recently released Bravely Default: For the Sequel in Japan.

'The Art of Bravely' art book features a message from Yoshida, as reported by Siliconera, that explains, "This is a personal message of mine, but I'd like to say thank you for all the support these past 18 years. I have decided to leave Square Enix, but I believe our relationship will continue going on."
