After 19 years of service, Ryuta Ueda leaves Sega. Perhaps, his most famous work is Jet Set Radio‘s fantastic art direction, but he also worked on such beloved Sega franchises as Yakuza and Panzer Dragoon.
While it’s sad to see such a talented man leave Sega, I wish him all the best in his future. If he will continue to work in the video game industry, I hope he can find something good in our wonderful times of crowdfunding (Psst. Make a Kickstarter for Jet Set Radio‘s spiritual successor. Just an idea. No pressure).
