Keiji Inafune, Mega Man and Dead Rising creator, who left Capcom in October of last year because he'd climbed as far as he could go, has launched two new companies, one of which is an all-new development studio called Intercept.
Popular Japanese blog, Andriasang
, translated the Intercept website, which lists three key focuses for the new studio: Originality
- Cannot be copied by others, GravityBeyond the Age
- Things that cross eras. Inafune has been an outspoken designer, claiming that Japanese game development is far behind the West and that it needs to shift its focus to compete, a sentiment that likely helped in his decision to leave Capcom and form his new studio.
His second company is called Comcept but will act as a cross-media business. No news of any projects have spawned from Intercept, but Inafune is scheduled to hold a conference today where we might learn more about Intercept's development future, so stay tuned.
