Inafune: The Hope of the Japanese Industry?

Keiji Inafune has settled into his role as the doomsayer of the Japanese industry. Since quitting his role as the head of Capcom's R&D in 2010, he's struck out on his own, forming three companies in 2011 alone.

Comcept is devoted to developing new IP; Intercept is more of a traditional game developer, and DiNG -- which is so new that it hasn't yet been reported in the Western press -- is to focus on the goldmine that is social and mobile games. It booted up in mid-December.

But what does Inafune really plan to do? Does he feel comfortable with his role as the main critic of the Japanee industry from within? Can he really run three companies at once? Gamasutra sat down with Inafune at this month's Game Developers Conference to try and get some answers to these questions. (Game Developers Conference, Industry, Keiji Inafune)
