Inafune promoted at Capcom

Keiji Inafune, the veteran Capcom designer responsible for some of the publisher’s most iconic brands, has been promoted to a new role overlooking the firm’s global output.

The Mega Man creator raised eyebrows at last year’s Tokyo Game Show by openly stating that Japan is dead” as a modern game development region.

"It’s a common comment I hear that games created in Europe aren’t really Capcom games, that games created in Japan are true Capcom games – I want to put an end to that,” said Inafune.
