Keiji Inafune Talks About The Impressive Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter Campaign

It’s been about three years since Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune left Capcom to start his own company, Comcept, where he’s recently been working on titles such as Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, Mighty No. 9, and KAIO: King of Pirates. During an interview with 4Gamer in November, he talked about his experience with Kickstarter. (Keiji Inafune, Mighty No. 9, PS Vita, PS3)

Is it not a little selfish that Kickstarter is being used for such high-profile 'projects'? It seems unlikely that Inafune would HAVE to crowd-source, so is it just a cynical way to cut down on production costs?

Yeah, asking for money to make a game everybody want is evil, how dare he...
Arkworthy  +   537d ago
When he MUST have the resources and contacts already at his disposal to make it, but uses a website designed to help indie projects get funding when no other means are available? Not evil, but a little mercenary.

Bottom line: They could have made the game themselves, on their dime, but chose to do it on ours instead.
