Manabu Daishima Passes Away

Manabu Daishima

With horrible news, Manabu Daishima, a designer who worked on Romancing Saga, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy XII and Secret of Mana has passed away.  He was off diving with friends and found unconscious and never woke up.

We are truly saddened such a great artist of lush backgrounds has passed. His work sounds like a little feat, but it is huge.  All the lives he brought adventure to with his work will remember Manabu Daishima.

Try to play them all, even if you do not beat them, if you haven’t already.

Send blessings and goodness to his family.
