Outspoken Capcom head, Keiji Inafune, best remembered as the creator of Mega Man and Dead Rising, has handed in his papers at Capcom, stepping down as creative director for parts unknown.

"People that really know me, can see where I'm coming from," Inafune wrote in a blog post, as transcribed by Kotaku. "I'm not a regular dude. It's probably because I'm strange." He also noted that the main reason for leaving was with the "intention of starting my life over".

In more recent times, Inafune has spoken outwardly at Japanese game development, calling it stale and "boring", adding that Eastern devs were years behind what was happening in the West.

While Capcom won't be replacing Inafune directly, Jun Takeuchi (Resi 5, Lost Planet and Onimusha 3 producer) has been promoted to corporate officer to help fill in the newly crafted gap.
