Thanks! What is your CPU and amount of RAM? I'm thinking of getting an Intel Core i7-8750H and 16GB of Ram.

What Bikmambetov is going to do there? He can only share how to make stupid movies :)

This would be so much more interesting if they'd offer help with housing and integration with a crash course in Japanese. Having some knowledge of the Japanese language and culture should be a pre but in my honest opinion, not a must. That would make this job hunt a much more relevant subject of interest.

Final Fantasy XV Art Director Left Square Enix
3 April, 2017
Isamu Kamikokuryo has left famous Japanese company after 18 years of loyal service.

Kamikokuryo reported about his decision over the Twitter. He worked as an art director on Final Fantasy XV for quite some time and now he wants to draw new things, or switch to writing.

Yesterday, March 31, I resigned from Square Enix. It’s been a little over 18 years since joining the company in 1999. It was a wonderful experience, from starting out as a concept artist for Final Fantasy X to Final Fantasy XV. I feel nothing but gratitude for the company that provided me with the opportunity to meet so many people and display my talent.
Although I feel as if I left my heart behind, I want to move forward onto drawing new things. From here on, I’ll do freelance art and diction work, and I’m thinking about reviving some writing activity as well. To all the staff, and to all the fans, thank you very much for supporting my drawings for such a long time.

Kamikokuryo’s first assignment was directing the background art for Final Fantasy X. He later became involved with Final Fantasy XII, creating an incredible high-fantasy look for the game. He designed large cities with varied architectural styles, trying to create a vision of the modern metropolis. He became the art director of  Final Fantasy XIII & Final Fantasy XV.
