Inafune Was Spot On, Capcom Are A Sequels Machine

After holding a seminar at a Japanese university recently, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune shared some rather interesting information about his former company, Capcom. He claimed that Capcom were only interested in producing sequels and they had a mantra whereby 70-80 percent of all games they made had to come under that umbrella. This was backed up with the revelation that Dead Rising and Lost Planet were initially rejected by Capcom as viable projects.

Damn no wonder he left but seriously capcom needs new ips and needs to stop milking their games.

a_bro2503d ago

its not that they should milk their games, its that their executive department needs to get fired.

EYEamNUMBER12503d ago

they announced 2 new ips just a while back
do people expect them to release new IP after new IP?

especially after everyone didn't buy some of their other new IP's

Knushwood Butt2503d ago

They do milk way too much, but there are some new IPs too.

Last Ranker for PSP (although it didn't do so well. Looked OK though)

Asura's Wrath is another upcoming one. Doesn't particularly interest me, but new IP regardless.

Misterhbk2503d ago

Not trying to defend capcom in any way, but the amazing looking Dragons Dogma says hello.

Yea i'll give it to them for that but seriously i would like for them to stop making different versions of sf and focus more on new ips and for the love of god stop dlc milking.

@ below Hmm maybe.

wwm0nkey2503d ago

The only game that should be milked is the Monster Hunter series. Still waiting on the PS3/360 MH game :(

Myst2503d ago

Frontier needs localization >:( that's really all we need now.

SixTwoTwo2503d ago

With the NGP coming soon maybe we'll get lucky and get a NGP/PS3 Monster Hunter...

I think most companies fall into this trap. It's not just Capcom.

mephman2503d ago

Yea, but Capcom do it with no shame :p. They don't even bother adding new numbers to games. We're almost up to our fourth Street Fighter IV in 3 years, and we've now got a ton of Dead Rising 2 games.

ThePsychoGamer2503d ago

isn't Inafune currently working on Neptune 2...

Knushwood Butt2503d ago

Maybe, but at least Neptune was a fringe new IP that did well.

MintBerryCrunch2503d ago

go to sega, with games like vanquish and pretty sure they would let him experiment with his artistic ideas

macky3012503d ago (Edited 2503d ago )

well, that is ture,.. and he is a sadist.

@MintBerryCrunch; people hate on Sega for whatever reason( mostly team Sonic),.. I think they published some of most compelling titles this gen,.. Was just looking at the third party titles I got,.. A lot of shit that is pretty good, is Sega's,..
