Neptunia Series Character Designer Tsunako Leaves Idea Factory, Goes Freelance

We’ve learned (via Games Jouhou) that longtime Idea Factory character designer Tsunako has left the company.

While she has left her permanent role at the company, she’ll continue to work on Idea Factory and Compile Heart games as a freelance illustrator.

Tsunako noted in her blog that she had to go freelance because of her decision to move out of the city, to be closer to her family (who are having poorer health).

We wish the best for Tsunako’s family and hope their health improves. What are some of your favorite designs from Tsunako? Sound off in the comments below!
