What does this mean for Megaman Legends 3?

Capcom keeps them.
I see. Now I'm really curious about Rockman's future. Well, Inafking's too.

Almost thought this was a joke topic for a second. But alas. :(

I only wish he would've contributed a little more to Legends 3 and the other Capcom projects.

I'll agree with Vixy, that does make sense.

I find it funny that he's leaving at the end of this(?) month and it only has 3 days left.

Im actually surprised, very much so, that he wont at LEAST stick around to see L3 through. HE pushed for it after all, and HE wanted to make it all this time, so one would figure he would at the very least leave once L3 is done.

So, does this mean we won't get any more megaman games like MM Universe, no X9? Definately no X9. And what about the Legends 3 Project? Didn't he say he wanted to make that game before he left Capcom? It's not finished the game just got started.

Oh well.....

It's a sad day. Fortunately the Mega Man franchise will most likely continue to be strong even with Keiji Inafune gone, just look at Inti Creates.

Now who will become my new favorite developer at Capcom? Honestly only Shinji Mikami and Keiji Inafune were awesome to follow and listen to for me. Does anyone know the developer names at Inti Creates?

Of course, I thank you for all the good things you have done to the Mega Man franchise, you were awesome. Looks like you aren't done designing games yet though, I look forward to your new position!

I too, am slightly concerned for Mega Man Legends 3 as well. It looked like Inafune really was fully in on that.

What worries me is what will become of the Mega Man classic series that's been revitalized as of late?  Without Inafune around, who knows what will happen.  Still, Inafune leaving CAPCOM is like losing a friend, it's going to hurt for a while after hearing the bad news.  Perhaps he may end up making a new independent game company, or perhaps work with Platinum Games; that's where some of CAPCOM's staff work now.

Long live Mega Man.

Re: Keiji Inafune leaves Capcom - UPDATE: Jun Takeuchi replaces Inafune
« Reply #35 on: October 29, 2010, 07:10:59 PM »
Damn, Capcom is DOOMED.


Now who's gonna be its saviour, Jun Takeuchi? No, just no....

Um... Yeah, about that... XD

Quote
As of 1st November, Jun Takeuchi will take on the added responsibility of corporate officer as well as his existing deputy head of consumer games and R&D Division, and general manager of R&D production.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, Capcom's taking Inafune's depature as an opportunity to shuffle a few key staff around. Katsuhiko Ichii will become head of development organisation, and a new development management team will be headed by Nobuyuki Matsushima, Jun Takeuchi, Taichiro Genbun, Hiroyuki Kobayashi and hutaro Kobayashi.

I hope that whoever continues the MML3 Project will be respectful of whatever Inafune wanted of it.

couldn't be put any better. Not to mention Inafune hasn't had much involvement with his projects for quite some time now. My guess is that Dead Rising 1 was the last project he actually got to work the most on. Sad to see him go, but I'm not worried about Mega Man or Capcom. They're not SEGA. =P

It's a shame to see him go. I'll miss him.

I have a bad feeling for the future of rockman... well best luck to you, inafking

Honestly, I wouldn't be so worried. As long as the likes of Inti Creates is still around, there will always be at least ONE main venue of how to get some decent Rockman experiences. Plus, as has been said a couple of times over this topic, until relatively recently (MM9), Inafune hadn't been a part of the day to day proceedings of Rockman in some years. And while we did get a few questionable games during that time, we still did get a number of decent, if not some of the best Rockman games ever made without too much in the way of his input at all (re: Zero series).

If any thing, Inafune did more harm than good, when he wanted to put two Rockman games on the (at-the-time) fledgling PSP. And if the best that he could provide for us in these last few years is basically a round of 8-bit throwbacks and then FINALLY DASH3? Maybe it might be high time to see what the likes of Kawano and Horinuichi can do, if one or the other stands to be the top (Rush) Dog once Inafune's departure is final.

In the long run, I'm happy for the man. LoL, just in my experiences alone, quitting a job you're not satisfied with is a cause to celebrate and wish him luck on all his future endeavors, no matter what. So congrats, Inafking, and may your future be filled with everlasting peace.

Oh, and thanks for all the Megaman!

I just hope the MegaMan series is in good hands and I am also worried about Legends now.

I distinctly recall Inafune being listed in ZERO/ZX as well as EXE/SSR credits as either producer or executive producer.

I kinda saw this coming when he said he hated working at Capcom but I thought he would at least have finished MML3 before leaving. Still, I wish him the best of luck. He deserves to rest.

How can the creator of Megaman just abandon his son and cousins? :(
