Mega Man's Creator Quits Capcom.
Keiji Inafune Resigns From Capcom.
Inafune Keiji resigns and leaves Capcom at the end of this month.

Until he finally did the right choice of leaving Capcom! I wonder what holds the future for Capcom? There's still talented guys in the company though but that doesn't stop me from being worried.

Also, why you guys didn't vote for his design for Legends 3? Now he's pisses. :(

But seriously, thanks for everything man. You did the childhood of many people around the world better with your games. I know he will not read this, but it must be said.

Good, maybe now we have someone who will "motivate" the people at Capcom to make Onimusha and BOF.

There's no reason for Capcom to make a BoF or Onimusha game now. They could work in a Breath of Fire VI for the 3DS though, but the IP is not too strong to make big number likes Capcom wants with every game they make and publish.

Watching the development of the new Mega Man games is goin to be fun, especially Legends 3 being a game for the fans and all that.

Also, FUSION THREAD, GO!

Dino Crisis then?

The reason is that people want them. If there's no reason to make them, then I have no more reason to buy any Capcom games.

Finally!!! If only he left six years earlier, perhaps Mikami, Kamiya and Inaba would still be working at Capcom and the company wouldn`t be as creatively bankrupt as it is now. Well, at least they still have Monster Hunter. Fortunately, Inafune didn`t get to fuck it up with his "westernizing" BS.

Quote from: Infaune
I love Capcom. Probably more than anyone in the world. However, it's not always the case that your hopes are realized. Just as it was with the girlfriend I loved long ago.

I lol'd irl.

I never understood why he felt that westernizing Japanese was the only viable way to save the Japanese gaming industry. It makes me some what curious...

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.
Especially when people tell you they are getting tired of your grass because it's always the same thing over and over.

Well, I guess I never going to understand the fact that people wants a new Breath of Fire game. Yeah, the last three games were something special but right now I doubt that Capcom have the balls to do an RPG.

But I've been wrong in the past, so I'm ready to eat my words if they do another BoF game.

Fortunately, Inafune didn`t get to fuck it up with his "westernizing" BS.

But what about Dead Rising, DmC, Bionic Commando (2009) and Dark Void? Those game are (or were) aiming for the west. Two of this games received bad reception in the market, and DmC it going to have a hard time selling 5 millions copies but at least the Dead Rising game are decent (thanks to Inafune and some good business decisions from what I've read).

Not to mention that Dead Rising 2 have sold 2 million copies now, too bad that Inafune isn't going to be involve in the sequel (if Capcom plans to do one anyway).

I never understood why he felt that westernizing Japanese was the only viable way to save the Japanese gaming industry. It makes me some what curious...

He has been 23 years making games, sooner or later a guy like him is going to see something that put his passion to test... and making games is no easy job most of the time.

And I always been against his westernization thing, mostly because Platinum Games alone demonstrated to the world that you can still make a "Japanese game" without throwing the Japanese flavor out of the window. There's something for everyone to enjoy in Vanquish, Bayonetta or MadWorld.

And seriously, if I want to play a western game I go and buy Red Dead Redemption, Call of Duty 4 or Fallout 3 in my store without a problem.

So, basically, this means we'll never see a good Megaman game ever again.  And just as we get word that Megaman Legends 3 is in production.

My world is crumbling around me.  It hurts so much.

Except that two of those games are very, very clearly marketed at the west, and have very little Eastern developmental influence.

Edit: After reading the Siliconera link, I think I could possibly be content with Inafune working at Level-5.  Assuming they can get the lisence to do Megaman games.
