Good Interview, After reading this, I see why he hated his job and why he resigned.

KI: "Not a single member of the board of directors understands games."

Now it makes the list of creative minds who left Capcom to four.
Atsushi Inaba, Shinji Mikami, Hideki Kamiya, now Kenji Inafune.
Good to hear he's not leaving the game industry and that he's looking to open his own studio.

Yep thats one of mine thinkings!Capcom is letting in major devs go away and the are only thinking in profits!Im starting to think that all this moves by Capcom about buying western devs companys and handle major IP (like Bionic Comando and now it seems RE too) have something to do with the lack of internal development teams ( mostly major devs developers) and not just the westernization of japanese videogames!

Sony understands video games. Sony understand the developers' vision. Just ask the developers of Heavy Rain.

With Sony's Cell expertise + Inafune's vision = Games full of Awesomeness!!!

All these great Japanese developers are leaving their old blinded companies behind to follow their creative visions.

If Sony were smart, Sony would go and recruit/collaborate with these Japanese developers to create interesting, unique, and creative games. It's basically a big pool of skills, talents, and creativity waiting to be pick up and funded.

The war in the West have ended. The war will be fought in the East soon. Whoever "controls" these talented Japanese developers that have left their old companies (Inafune, Hironobu, the guy responsible for Xenogears, Xenosaga, and Xenoblade, the guy responsible for Devil May Cry, talents from Platinum Games, etc.) will have enormous Eastern development powers.

Come back, Inafune. Come back!

I'd love to see him start up his own company.

I honestly don't blame Inafune for leaving.

Stunt3652d ago

Like I said. Let's see him start a new company! Inafune Creations, anyone?

“Even when I submitted my letter of resignation, nobody contacted me about it. (laughs) There should’ve been a, ‘Hey Inafune, do you have some time?’ or, ‘What do you mean by this? I want to hear it straight from you.’ Nothing. Zero."

For a man who worked 23 years in their company, I totally understand where hes coming from.

And another thing is, Yoshinori Ono, when asked by a twitter guy if its easier to get a new Darkstalkers game approved by the higher ups, replied that its actually harder for proposals to get the green light now that Inafune is gone. He said that Inafune was one of the more understanding higher officials from Capcom when it comes to fighting games.
