Keiji Inafune Resigns From Capcom
Posted on Friday, October 29 @ 09:16:59 Eastern by Nicholas TanAfter 23 years, the character creator of Mega Man and producer for the Dead Rising franchise leaves Capcom.
Keiji Inafune, via his official blog (that's in Japanese), had announced his displeasure with his job a month earlier, so his recently announced departure is not terribly surprising. He is also remembered of being one of the foremost critics of the Japanese gaming industry during the Tokyo Game Show for the last two years, calling it stagnant and lacking true innovation. (And he's right.)
It remains to be seen what direction the Mega Man and Dead Rising franchises will take without his presence. And where Keiji Inafune will end up... perhaps Platinum Games?
