Twenty-Three Years Committed Work and ‘No Thanks’
We all get exhausted from time to time whether you’re studying or in a full time job. Sometimes you just got to take a break but it doesn’t mean you’re no longer committed to your goal in life even if it makes you quite literally pull your hair out. Keiji Inafune, a former Mega Man Producer, took some time out from his position not shy of a year ago after twenty-three long years of committed, hard work. He saw fit however to at least aid the completion of the Mega Man Legends 3 project under contract but Capcom turned his offer down. Inafune had this to say:
“I stated that I was ready to make a contract with them so that I could keep working on those projects that I started. I couldn’t start making contracts with other publishers for sure if Capcom agreed to the proposition, but I wanted to see those projects that I started to completion.”
“They answered, ‘We have no need to do that’. I wanted to leave Capcom to recharge my energy, and support Capcom from there, but it seems they don’t allow it”.
Even though he put his own companies projects aside for MML3 he claims Capcom had no interest in allowing him to be appart of the games completion.
