Kamiya had some words for the highly successful Kickstarter headed by former coworker Keiji Inafune.
Isn't that a good thing though, I mean Capcom is shit these days. Making a game EXACTLY like the one you helped create is a massive middle finger to Capcom. Same with Yooka-Laylee More developers need to do things like this.
Most people are mistaken Inafune of being like the Miyamoto for Mario though. This guy pretty much just ride off other people's work throughout his whole career and took credit for them. Worked at Capcom long enough to have seniority, he didn't create Megaman at all, he was in charge of Megaman X, but all he did was give out some ideas and his drawings are absolute terrible. All he did was, hey lets give Megaman a sword, hence Zero was born. Resident Evil was successful, so he said hey let's give RE a sword hence Onimusha was born. But rest of the work and everything else was done by his subordinates. Does he deserve the credit, a lot of ppl worked under him thinks no because he just came up w/ some easy concept while he took credit for everything else that everybody came up with working under him. His new company Comcept, pretty much just come up w/ ideas for other companies, and guess what, he's leaching off ideas of the ppl he hires and stamping his name on them just like before. Nobody even wants to hear these stuff cuz all they know or heard is "Inafune's the father of Megaman" which was absolutely not true anyway as Megaman was created by his boss at the time when he was just doing level design. Just took over as time went on cuz of seniority system in Japan. Now you guys understand that, then you'll understand Kamiya and even Mikami's (from RE) comments towards Inafune, cuz they both worked under Inafune at Capcom and stated that Inafune is incompetent and pretty much just takes credit for the final result before in other interviews. Kamiya's reaction now pretty much means Megaman is a creation by the ideas of a collective of people that worked at Capcom before and not just Inafune's one man creation, which everybody is mistakenly acknowledging right now. Igarashi's Bloodstained would be completely different as the amount of Igarashi's involvement in creating Castlevania is totally different then Inafune. Different reactions from ppl in the industry can tell you a lot.
I find it funny Hideki says this about Mighty No. 9 when Bayonetta is just female-lead Devil May Cry.
Kamiya already said Inafune is a business man, not a creator. That should be enough to support the above comment. https://twitter.com/pg_kami...
@Zealous-well Hideki actually did the DMC games...
^ Okami is also a Zelda clone.
I agree with Kamiya. He's a business man not a creator.
All they had to do was let Keiji do another megaman game. He wanted to, the fans wanted him to. It seems like a no-brainer. But unfortunately a lot of once great Japanese devs seem to be stuck on stupid for some reason. To be fair they are starting to make u-turns.
Well said and 100% agree. It is as if at the start of last gen that almost the entire Japanese game developers collectively = sh1t the bed. Very very strange. This generation looks to be fixing some of these things. SE - has FINALLY agreed to an FF7 remake, and generally have turned things around Sega - admits to misrepresentation, and that they are going to turn things around Sadly though we also have examples of some that still don't get it... Konami - WTF?!? Nintendo - Stuck in the past, and now undercutting WiiU by speaking about NX Capcom - still don't get it
Not fair lumping in Nintendo with all those others. As a developer, they still make some of the very best games, regardless of their familiar nature.
Namco is also falling a bit lately. Their free2play SoulCalibur was terrible, their SoulCalibur V was not half as fun as any of the SC 1-3 games. Tekken is attracting less and less players and the characters look almost exactly like over 10 years ago aside from better graphics. And Ridge Racer? Its last awesome game was released on the PS1. TTT2 in 2012 was the last game I bought from namco.
Best chance of turning around this gen Japan's top publishers this gen 1. Square-Enix (possibly vying for best 3rd party publisher this gen) 2. Nintendo 3. SCE 5. Sega 6. Capcom 4. Namco Bandai 6. Konami (MGS5, is their one saving grace) 7. Tecmo Koei Biggest fails in of JP 1. Konami just don't get it (games) 2. Nintendo just don't get it (consoles) 3. JP as a whole is just in shambles outside of a few developers, Square, Nintendo (as game developers), and SCEJ. Everyone else is just half @$$ing it in every regard.
This game looks better than anything Capcom would have let him do anyway. Yes it copies the concept but goes so much farther than previous entries. Its going to be a lot of fun.
Yeah, IMO it's good thing, new concept, characters, etc. Refresh unlike Mario you get tired of the same character even though there your favs.
Might No 9 is a way to show the creator believes in Mega Man and in the fanbase, so much so he was very willing to do something about it. The true insult to the series is Capcom's lack of care for it.
I've seen a Mega Man game before and this does not look the same to me. Unless you can copyright a genre I don't see this as copying.
It is definitely at its core a Mega Man game ... not just a game in its genre.
He made the same game he's been making for years, only this time he got paid out the ass for it. I'll stick to the originals, thanks. If that shitty looking 9 game cost 4 million, that just confirms capcom was paying him what he deserved,cause that game is not worth what it raised.
I think the expression people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones comes to mind. What's Bayonetta if it isn't a rip off of Devil May Cry?
Both games share the same themes, but have their own silly stories. And in the gameplay regard, well, they are quiet different. And I don't tink Mighty no. 9 is a copy of Mega Man, it's just simlar to it. However, we all know why Keji Inafune made the game, right?
Obviously Mighty No 9 is going to be a great game and looks cooler than anything Capcom has made with a Mega Man name on it in a long time. But at it's core you have to agree that it is a robotic guy that shoots energy of some sort out of a gun that is his arm. Come on man...That is Mega Man! Either way Mighty No 9 is a bolder endeavor than the last Capcom games or the ones that they would have made if this didn't happen. If anything this will show Capcom what they missed out on being a part of.
Bayonetta is obviously a spiritual successor to DMC in the same way mighty no.9 is to Megaman. I was just saying that if you're going to call Might No.9 a rip off of Megaman, then the same could be said of Bayonetta and DMC. Inafune and Kamija have done the exact same thing.
Bayonette is made by the same creator that made Devil May Cry. Why would it matter?
because he's having a pop at the guy who created megaman for doing the exact same thing he did.
Does kamiya ever say/do anything nice? He always comes off as such a bastard. Even when he's taking a picture with someone hes fucking scowling at the camera.
Na still remember he said he hated playstation.
Kamiya's like a living paradox: Really nice game ideas, but not a very nice person.XD
So does Red Ash. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... Can't wait to buy both, Not Inafune's fault Capcom isn't making Megaman games this good.
I think it would help if he got away from the whole boy meets gun thing.
Maybe, but what's more insulting is Capcom letting MegaMan rot in in an archive while fans a creators alike beg for a new one. At least with this Capcom might realize there's still an audience for the series
Letting his fingers--rather than his head--do the talking again...
Thing is when this comes out and sale, what would Capcom do with megaman. Will they put more dust on it or bring it back to life. If so how will it do after mighty release would people care about megaman anymore?
I think they have consigned megaman to the history books for now. They said themselves they wont make sequels to games that dont sell well in this day and age. So that just leaves new IP and whatever sony/MS or nintendo pay them to make from their back cat ie. streetfighter.
We wouldn't need MN9 if Mega Man was around but he isn't, so I am all for MN9.
No ones stopping Capcom from making Mega Man games.
Capcom's not smart enough to listen, at this point. If they were, we'd have already saved Volnutt from the moon.
And Kamiya likes making DMC clones with his latest being Scalebound. The nerve of this guy for criticizing someone else for the very same things he himself is doing. Baka! lol
