Farewell, Seth Killian
Seth Killian announced today he will be departing from Capcom, relinquishing his six-year position as strategic marketing director of online and community. Perhaps best known for his contributions to the Street Fighter community, Seth also played a pivotal role in establishing a direct line of communication with Mega Man fans in Capcom Unity's heyday.
The Mega Man forums, Ask Capcom, the Suggestions Box, and even the Devroom... Seth's had a hand in all of that. You have Seth to thank for projects like Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10, too. He supported the development of those games from day one, believe it or not! A Mega Man fan at heart, Seth always did what he could to assist us; fielding our questions, dropping hints, supporting fan projects. His support will be missed.
On a personal note, Seth helped me launch Rockman Corner. Way back when, he'd religiously post content from here to Capcom Unity. Consequently, Rockman Corner achieved an audience that has grown considerably over the years. Needless to say, he has my thanks.
Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors, Seth. And please, don't hesitate to spill the beans on that Mega Man 9 secret!
