Inafune to leave Capcom

Keiji Inafune, longstanding Capcom producer and the famed mind behind the studio’s most prolific character Mega Man, has announced his resignation from the company on his personal blog.

The post, entitled simply "Sayonara", explains the reasons behind Inafune’s decision, and rounds off what seems to have been a difficult period for the producer as evidenced by his recent expression of unhappiness within his job.

"A manager’s work means evaluating your subordinates and speaking your dreams. Anyone who can do both of those can be a manager. I thought that when I came here, and I still think that now,” Inafune writes.

But Inafune – whose official title at Capcom had been head of R&D management group, consumer games R&D division and contents management division – claimed he did not believe he could achieve both of those goals any more.
