He will gain Spike Power if he defeats Spiked Room Man.

I find it hilarious that Inafune was complaining about Japanese games not moving forward, and yet he assembles a team to make... a clone of a Megaman game, possibly one of the biggest culprits of that.

Ah well. Probably will be keeping an eye on this.
You got some dirt on you. Here's some more!

He was head of R&D. Every game that came out was essentially put into motion by him.

http://www.vg247.com/2010/09/02/inafune-devil-may-cry-5-to-have-western-touch-to-attract-buyers/

He pushed for the heavy westernization of games. He was in charge in the exact time frame this game was greenlit.

http://www.psu.com/a005876/Capcom--Okami-sequel-not-looking-likely?page=0

He said that Capcom would have to be "desperate" to make sequels to games like Viewtiful Joe or Okami, all franchises that Kamiya was involved in and are in much the same shape Mega Man is now.

I'm sorry, but what else am I supposed to take from this?

My name has nothing to do with Psychonauts.

Where is the proof that he even had a hand in DMC? It isn't listed on his page or on the page for DMC itself.

His page says that he had a hand in Bionic Commando for certain, but nothing about DMC.

Wait, what did team Ninja do to piss off Capcom fans? I thought you were all raging at Ninja Theory and Nintendo fans were the ones angry wit Team Ninja.

Ah well, I think I gave my reasons for why I was not too thrilled with what I saw and no one seemed to take much issue with it. Do not really have much else to add.

... he was head of R&D from at least 2007 to the time he left. That is LITERALLY an executive position. It is - or was -in his job description.

http://spong.com/feature/10109620/Interview-Head-of-Capcom-R-D-Keiji-Inafune

from an interview after he was promoted:

Keiji Inafune: Well, I’m overseeing production on those titles, as well as all Capcom’s other titles, so I can only really answer general questions on those titles.

This is his own words. His own admission that, as part of his position, he oversaw all of Capcom's titles.

Don't believe that one? How about this:

http://www.vg247.com/2010/04/23/keiji-inafune-named-capcoms-global-head-of-production/ - from 2010, when he was given even MORE oversight.

http://www.1up.com/do/feature?pager.offset=7&cId=3169938 - "This industry veteran [Keiji Inafune] oversees all of Capcom's development these days (he's the head of R&D)..."

http://www.siliconera.com/2013/02/12/capcom-senior-vp-gives-insight-into-east-vs-west-decisions/ - and lastly, testimony from Capcom's former Senior VP that "DmC: Devil May Cry", "Bionic Commando", and "Lost Planet 3" were part of Inafune's initiative.

''“Both [DmC Devil May Cry and Lost Planet 3], and some of the prior (like Bionic Commando) were driven by [Keiji] Inafune… now departed,” Svensson shared with forum users, in reply to a query regarding western collaborations and catering to a western market. (Note: Inafune publicly parted ways with Capcom in 2010.)

Svensson continues: “You’d have to ask him but as I recall, the logic was something along the lines of ‘doing the same thing is going to get us the same results (if we’re lucky). Let’s try something from a different perspective.’ In some cases, a Western one.”''

And, as I've proven, he retains a professional relationship with Team Ninja. What more do you want me to say to prove this is a fact?

Why are you on a crusade here, anyway?

Just don't buy the game if you hate it/Inafune so much.

Well, if Inafune was a driving force behind DMC, then why isn't it in his list of games like all the others were?

That he's now doing his own thang, and i congratulate him for it. He may have sent Devil May Cry off to die, but never did he go "you don't know what you want, and I know you want Donte."

He's killed a few darlings. But now he's making a new one. And that new darling, from the looks of it, already looks like my kind of game.

That's all I'm really gonna glean from your bashing.

Team Ninja or Ninja Theory?

I asked something similar, not that I got an answer. What exactly is Capcom's bad history with Team Ninja? Inafune's bad relationship with Team Ninja?

since when is a debate on a forum a "crusade"? Do you have to compare any giver of dissent with the knight's templar? Is any response to this that isn't "OMG GO INAFUNE" a slight?

it isn't on his list of games because the "head of R&D" for the company as a whole is not always given such credit. But again, the man said himself that he oversaw every game that was made and greenlit between being promoted and when he left.

Why am I saying this? Because this game is being sold on the not necessarily directly stated but suggested notion that he is taking something back. That "only the creator does it right", while, in the past, when he had the power to do so, he took a work in a direction that was anti-thetical to its roots, while saying their original forms were lacking.

That they'd have to be "desperate" to make sequels to them, games that were critically acclaimed, when it'd be far classier to say, "You know, those were good games, but it appears they didn't meet the neccessary results." I'm saying this because franchises I and my friends enjoyed and cared about were put into a similar state as Mega Man by Keiji Inafune.

But you know what? Time heals all wounds, and work ultimately stands on its own. I've seen creators I dislike produce good results. If he can make Mighty No. 9 into a great game, I'll give it the credit it's due. It may even be likely.

But that doesn't change the past, and I won't forget. I won't forget what Capcom did alone that ticked me off, either. They've both burned me, even when they weren't associated with one another. So yeah, they're both in the same standing to me, which is "tenuous".
