Suddenly im reminded of when Yuji Naka left Sega.
Wow. Though I cant say I didn't see this coming. He was getting increasingly upset with Capcom's company heads, and the japanese gaming biz in general. Not to mention the position he's in has GOT to be demanding... From what it seems, he has really not had that much fun being involved with the series lately. After all, outside of 9 and 10, he has not been a producer in a Mega Man game since 8/X4. he used to do illustrations, and him an the team would be all happy happy. After X4, he's just been "special thanks".
I actually kinda worry about Mega man now. :C
I wonder what he will do from here on out? Make his own company perhaps, like the aforementioned Mr. Naka?
In any case, Good luck Inafune-San! D:
