Keiji Inafune, Capcom's Global Head of Production, has confirmed rumors that the publisher is working with Fukuoka-based developer Level-5 (Professor Layton, Dark Cloud).
In an interview with Japanese business information site Diamond Online, Inafune described his eagerness to work with Level-5's Akihiro Hino. "This rumor is true," he said. "Right now, the two of us, with our staff, are working together on some truly interesting things. Even though Mr. Hino is younger, he's someone I respect. I wanted to try working with him, so I contacted him."
