Mega Man creator says many Japanese teams lack a 'creative vision'

Industry legend Keiji Inafune has become a bit infamous for his harsh criticisms of the Japanese game business, and in Gamasutra's latest feature interview, the Capcom veteran and Mega Man creator explained that many Japanese companies suffer because they don’t operate under a single "creative vision."

"A lot of companies, if you look at them today, they'll be like, 'Oh, Okay. How do we monetize? Where's the money to be made? What are we giving the consumers that they want?' They don't really have a creative vision for what to build a game around," he said.

At his own studios, Comcept and Intercept, Inafune hopes to avoid this problem by establishing a clear creative goal for his teams, which will help ensure that all development efforts go towards realizing that vision.

It’s embarrassing for nihon country, it feels Japanese games are just memories. It’s rare that we see anything new in this gen..

I'm with Inafune all the way, I'm just worried that he's all talk and not enough substance for his future games. I guess we'll see if he has something to offer for E3 this year.

That was Capcom's decision to cancel Mega Man, not his dumbass.

You do realize that Capcom owns Megaman and he doesn't work for Capcom anymore.

Edit - Didn't realize Valvatorez beat me to the punch.
