Square Enix is going all out to promote the upcoming survival shooter Left Alive, and today they released a video featuring its core team.
We meet director Toshifumi Nabeshima, character designer Yoji Shinkawa, and mecha designer Takayuki Yanase as they discuss the game’s development.
If you’re unfamiliar with the names, Nabeshima-san was director on the first Armored Core and then worked as a producer for pretty much the rest of the series. He also wrote the script of Dark Souls II.
Yoji Shinkawa probably needs no introduction, as he is the super-famous character designer behind the Metal Gear Solid series, on which he worked with Hideo Kojima since the onset.
The name of Takayuki Yanase might be a little less familiar, but he also worked on the mecha design of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, on top of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Xenoblade Chronicles X. On top of its work on video games his long career in anime features masterpieces like Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Tokyo Ghoul, Mazinger Z: Infinity, Broken Blade, and many more.
