Keiji Inafune Headed to PAX Prime


Former Capcom Producer Keiji Inafune, the man behind everything from Mega Man to Dead Rising, will be dropping by the Penny Arcade Expo later this month. Fans in attendance can see him on August 31st from 4:30pm to 5:30pm in the Kraken Theater. The event’s description is as follows:

Keiji Inafune: From 8-bit to Next-Gen, and Beyond
Celebrated as the “father of Mega Man,” but branded as an outspoken critic of the Japanese game industry, ex-Capcom honcho Keiji Inafune’s frank talk, controversial opinions, and – most of all – his games have made many fans (and maybe a few enemies) on both sides of the Pacific. Join us for an informal chat through Inafune’s 25 year career: where console gaming began, how it’s changed over the years, and what’s coming next – both for the industry and for Inafune himself.

The event will be livestreamed too, so if you can't make it to PAX, the magic of the internet is here to lend a hand. Isn't that nice?

  3. It would be nice to have an update on King of Pirates, the 3DS game he announced two years ago.

  4. Keiji Inafune THINKS he's knows his stuff but really, he's a reverse weaboo. (Westeaboo?) He's all about how "Japanese developers are out-of-touch with what consumers want" and stuff, nowadays.
    He's the guy who thought "Mega Man Prime" was a good idea.

    2. Megaman Prime was and still isn't, a good idea.

    3. Look at the whole uproar over Capcom working on all those social/mobile games. That's what Japan wants. Social and mobile gaming is huge over there, but over here gamers act like Capcom kicked a puppy.

      None of the large Japanese developers have done particularly well in the west this generation except for Nintendo. They are the only Japanese developer that regularly shows up on the list of top 10 best-selling games.

    1. He doesn't work for Capcom anymore, so he has zero say in whether there will be an X9 or not.

  9. Inafune is a sharp dude. Just because he can't use Rockman anymore doesn't mean he can't make some excellent games for us. I'm excited for whatever he is developing.
