Tsunako | Neptune and Noire

Tsunako, known as the character designer for the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, has announced that she is parting ways with Idea Factory and Compile Heart. The artist cited her family’s condition and difficulty working in Tokyo as reasons for her decision. Though she is going freelance now, she will continue to work on Idea Factory and Compile Heart works. She will work on the upcoming mobile game, Mega Miracle Force.

Tsunako has been the character designer for the Hyperdimension Neptunia series since the first game released for the PlayStation 3 in 2010. She is also the illustrator for the Date A Live novel series.

We would like to wish her the best on all of her future projects.
