Famed game designer hints he's working on a new game for Sony's portable, says new hardware pushes creativity.
Influential Mega Man designer Keiji Inafune is working on a new PlayStation Vita game, the developer implied tonight at the 2012 Game Developers Conference.
Speaking during a session titled "The Future of Japanese Games," Inafune said that new hardware pushes developers creatively and noted that he's been working on the PS Vita before stopping to note he wasn't supposed to talk about that.
He did not reveal any additional information regarding the mystery title or indicate which of his new companies (Comcept or Intercept) is behind the project.
Inafune resigned from Capcom in October 2010 after spending 23 years with the company. He originally joined Capcom as a graphic designer, working on the first Street Fighter. He went on to create the character design for Mega Man and then worked on the game's many sequels before graduating to the role of producer.
yeeeeeeeees anything for the Vita is more than well received yeeeees!!! :) and from Japan even sweeeeeeter!!!
i really wish it was a megaman game but somehow i think that would just be a legal mess -.- but whatever it is im sure it will be good
I really want a Vita. But I'm waiting for the inevitable release of the version with HDMI output and an HD camera.
Who's that in the picture? Captain Japan? Seriously though,I hope Inafune's ideas do better away from Capcom. The total disrespect for Megaman they had must've made him angry.
imagine if Keiji manage to restore the japanase gaming greatness. It would be called the Keiji restoration (history reference).
None of these high end developers are making games for smartphones or tablets. This should tell us something.
Here's to hoping that if it is developed by capcom it won't be removed after months of hype and setting up a team of your most dedicated fans to help create it.
The more I hear about Wii U, I want it. The more I hear about the Vita, I want it. Guess I'll just have to choose after this year's E3. Whoever anounces the better game will get my money.
