Scrawl: "Keiji Inafune, creator of Mega Man and producer of the Dead Rising franchise, has just announced on his personal blog that he’s to resign from his position at Capcom."
HOLY SHIT!? I mean holy cow shit?!
. Yeah, this is random. : /
he better go finish megaman legends 3 first he was whining about making legends 3 for years then when capcom finally says ok and he just walks?
He will be going over to Microsoft Japan... He loves MS and i think he has been eyeing a place there, and im sure MS would welcome someone with a wide background to up their japanese catalogue.
Finally, a talentless idiot ruining every franchise he could get his stinking hands on. But leaving Capcom after allowing the butchering of DMC, smart move moron, and get a dental. Good riddance.
Square might have a chance again. Anyway, could they break their contract with NT now? I HATE NT just because they are the most stuck up devs on the planet. I think if they can break the contract, they should. Get out and make a DEVIL MAY CRY (spelled out) we all deserve.
When I said that I was joking!? DON'T TAKE EVERYTHING SO SERIOUS DAWG.
I'm farking shocked! I thought it was a figure of speech when he said he hated his job. I didn't know he will leave O_o your world...MEGAFIED!
What the fuck is going on here!?
VICTORY IN JAPAN! @ Disagree's. This is the guy responsible for all of Capcom's talk of westernization, like DmC. With him gone, Capcom might actually get back to making good games, like everything it made before 2005. Pre 2005 Capcom was the shit!
People don't hate the Capcom's recent games because they were westernized, they hate them because they were sub-par...period. As many western developers have shown, west does not = lame non nonsensical stories. If DMC5 and RE6 are good games, I don't care if Martha Steward is the protagonist...hell that'd be funny beating up zombies with a sieve.
They wer bad becaus they tried to copy things they didn't like themselves and didn't understand.
it's true , but i'm not taking it that way . I've been consistantly angry at the man for this whole generation of consoles . But it's obvious he wasnt well and was burned out . Now he can go back with the passion back in a smaller studio of his own , or with a team of people giving him the support he needs .
As a pretty big fan of Dead Rising, Street Fighter 4 and MvC 3, I totally disagree!! With all due respect. Edit: I said with all due respect!!
@CrzyFool He had no hand in those fighting games . And pretty much everyone agree its the only area Capcom had truly right this gen .
^ You're a crazy fool for liking those games. But seriously. RE1-4, Dino Crisis, Onimusha and so on, that was when Capcom was really good. @ Nihilism. Don't get me wrong, I love the west too. But I think the west should stick to making western games and the east should stick to making eastern games. Everytime Inafune opened his mouth sprouting about how Japanese games were shit now and how they should copy the west it annoyed me to no end.
I think the unluck of the Clover has cursed Capcom. one of their biggest mistakes was disbanding that incredible team and allowing all those great developers to walk. seriously though... they've always had good games some gems in there, relatively small lineups, etc. But yeah, I think they've sort of lost their way in recent years. Instead of making great games they've been more concerned about making games that might sell and Westernizing their titles. When quite frankly I think they're just a niche company who needs to embrace what they've done well in the past and rely on their fans to carry them and be content in doing so. btw: I think the next DMC is going to FAIL BADLY!
one of the reasons clover was shut down was because all of the top dogs at clover had already left the studio
YEAHHHH GLORIOUS DAY AWESOME NEWS YOU'll NOT be missed
NOTHING is Western about Dead Rising 1/2. Besides the locations of the games, the game style/play are completely JP.
Wow Thats surprising. I say we will move to EA or something more western.
I think he might be going to Microsoft Japan.
my higher ups just let me know that he is in talks with Sony and EA Japan. he is also considering opening his own studio in next few months.
Maybe he's retiring since he seemed pretty positive about Capcom. If not then he might head up his own studio.
Wow. This came out of left field. New plans maybe?
I hope he joins Platinum Games or Valhalla.
It will sounds harsh but finally . We you are burned out with a place , stop moaning about it every day in interviews . Get a break , get better , start your studio or find a place you can call home , and go back to war .
finally he leaves, been getting pissed off hearing he's constant wining about how japan games are shit
Wait then who's left in CApcom? Its like all their top designers have already left.
. There's still a guy who create Street Fighter. Also the Monster Hunter creator. And......... ........................... Anyone else?
all the street fighter guys have left already. Ono is just a hired contractor.
Yes the rpg and fighting game side is more than ok so far . And the newly added Capcom vancouver studio might do wonders with a better designer
I wonder how this will affect MML3 I'm not surprised, hes been very vocal about his job and the japanese gaming industry. He sounds like he wants to make games stil, but Capcom just trolled him too often. I'm kinda of glad, this is the guy who made Capcom obsessed with the west, and thinks japan should try to make brown shooters too. Ah well, maybe he'll do something worthwhile now. Its odd to think Capcom used to have an amazing staff, Kamiya, Mikami, and now Inafunes gone too. What do they have now? Ono-san
Don't like kicking a man when he's down, but we may now get a decent Resident Evil and no more Lost Planet. Happy days.
or a better lost planet... the setting of the game is awesome, you can't argue with that...
He has been ranting for weeks about his creative freedom, figured it would have led to this.
Prolly gonna move to the west and make games there /s Kinda strange that he all of a sudden decided to resign, wonder who's gonna be the main man at CapCom now that everyone of their best people have left to either form other studios or just retire like Inafune.
I think this is a forced retirement if you ask me.
Hope the next producer of the Dead Rising franchise don't mess the fuck up, like Takeuchi did on RE5.
I am very glad to see him go honestly got really tired of seeing him in that retarded jacket lol. I also don't like the fact that he was pushing for that crap of a reboot they are calling DmC!
Finally, we can all bond together as human beings... ...and love this news.
i only hope this don't mean no MML3 i will be pissed if the cancel out the game...
Thank god. This was the moron who was wanting to westernizing of capcom games. Maybe we'll see a proper DMC5 now.
I bet he winds up at THQ.
so i still give him respect. what i don't respect is when he made dumb decisions to franchises that were doing fine on their own without westernizing them. lost planet 2 - flop in reviews re5 - meh in reviews dmc reboot - it's gonna flop hard dead rising - i really don't know get back to making Japanese games capcom and bring them over here to America untouched in all it's glory.
capcom needs to hire some better talent..
Good news. now he will shut up.
Now we can assure that next gen will be very diferent from this one from Capcom standpoint that is.
I'm not sure its a good time to leave the industry. To change jobs maybe, but not to leave.
he left because megamen is on the freaking 3ds instead of consoles. He left because they wouldnt give him creative freedom. This dude was responsible for all the awesomeness in capcom back in the day. He didnt change the company did and for the worse. He didnt want the westernization and if he said that it was because capcom made him. You guys are a bunch of idiots if you actually think he was the problem. He is an old ars original japan game developer from old school times like miyamoto, and kojima. what in your freaking right minds would make you think he doesnt share the same mindsets on supporting japan and making those japan type games like them? miyamoto and kojima would never ask for westernization and dont want to be multiplat all over the gosh dang place like this guy was forced to be. He finally said enough is enough im leaving and going to sony.
It's Capcom's fault not him.
I don't think is Inafune's fault at all, but people are putting all the blame on him. They're like crying babies for god sakes. I don't know man, but Capcom's future is looking very bad. All the top designers have gone away.
Agreed, first it was Shinji Mikami(Clover studio) now the creator of Megaman himself... Too bad gamers of this gen are beyond stupid to comprehend the situation...
You really can't blame them though. Inafune's words did have some kind of impact that it felt like he was offending something they liked. Gamers only care about games, since when do they care who made the game in the first place.
"Keiji Inafune leaves Capcom" duh.... who cares about capcom in this gen?
lol, it's sad isn't it?
Hopefully this means Lost Planet 3 will actually be stunning on ALL fronts.
You know, Inafune has nothing to do with Lost Planet 2.
I don't really like the guy but really... Who does Capcom have left?
R.i.p capcom in future. Good thing u still have street fighter lol.
*Turns Computer On* Reading: ?Keiji Inafune Leaves Capcom" My Reaction: WHAT THE FUCK!?!? O______O He was serious!?!?!?
R.I.P. Rockman/Megaman 1987 - 2010
I'll second that he'll end up at Microsoft. I'm not childish enough to try and blame him single handedly for the terrible games Capcom has made in the recent past. I can't blame Capcom for trying to make games for us in the west.. they thought thats what we wanted they made a mistake.. it's time to move on for Inafune and it's time for Capcom to start listening. Street Fighter wont save them forever. Lost Planet 2 was a great game but it's story was so retarded most people passed on that alone. The new DMC is making people baaw because they want Silver hair/Man bra Dante back, which is kinda gay but whatever. Capcom just needs to listen to the fans.. not just some of us.. ALL OF US. Also, they need to get some new talent ASAP.
Or because Ninja Theory is whiny garbage that has proven absolutely nothing when it comes to handling insanely intricate combat gameplay. Plus UE3? Really?
Capcom has gone downhill, I stillremember the glory days of Capcom. Devil may cry 1 and 3, I loved God Hand. Anyways so long Keiji, Debbie-downer
I just hate goodbyes... I'm not crying...somethings in my eye
megaman legends? yet you all diss him because you claim he messed up capcom but you want him to make a new mml again?
