I bet he was pissed when he found his design for the MML3 heroine finished last on the poll...

now, seriously... this could be good or bad depending on how you look at it.

So, uh, does Capcom have anyone worth anything anymore?
They still have Ryozo Tsujimoto but that's about it. Everyone else who made Capcom, Capcom has left now.]

this makes little sense unless he lost interest in making games.

inafune was the head honcho
He did. He commented the other week about how he hated his job.

I BET IT'S BECAUSE HIS DESI-...Oh.

I bet he's moving to glorious America, since we invented everything interesting about video games since 2005. He made some neat games, though.

I dunno, I'm somewhat panicked over this.. It seems it was Keiji that really pulled for the production of DASH 3... Also, to my knowledge he had a pretty large part in the making of the originals no? I can't help but feel that my too-good-to-be-true dream sequel may be in jeopardy now...

I think he was kicked out. Japanese companies are very harsh on employees who publicly criticize them. Well, like every other company

There's a huge 6 page interview at 4Gamer which they conducted with Inafune last week (posted today) about his resignation. I'm not going to bother translating it because Anoop will probably have something on his blog later. He does address Megaman Legends 3 as well, saying that it took so long to assemble the staff and to get the project approved that he didn't want to quit at this point, but he just couldn't continue anymore because he really hates his job and doesn't feel any joy or drive anymore. :lol

So who do we blame?

Does this mean Capcom will stop blaming every product failure on it not being Westernized enough?

Anyhow, I wish him all the luck. End of an era.

Ok, now I'm gonna stop pretending to care about any Capcom official other than Ono and Niitsuma.

wow, wtf?

no more western approach for capcom now? ;)
Yes, Capcom will completely change their approach to development and abandon the huge investment they just made in both DmC and Blue Castle Games, simply because one man left the company. Yup.

Nope.

So Inafune was being sarcastic about western gaming this whole time?
