Capcom Boss Keiji Inafune Resigns

Well, the man clearly wasn't happy. Throughout this year, Capcom designer and head of research and development, Keiji Inafune, has been vocal about the Japanese game industry's failings: from saying Japan was "5 years behind" to saying flat out, "I hate my job," the writing has been on the wall for some time.

Now, the 23-year veteran who presided over franchises like Onimusha and Dead Rising is calling it quits. Inafune has announced his departure from Capcom; he will be resigning soon. He started at the company as a graphic designer and worked on the very first Street Fighter, then moved on to character design for Mega Man, and then grabbed the role of producer for the titles listed above, as well as Lost Planet. Unfortunately, it's his comments concerning the perceived downfall of Japanese gaming that has him in the spotlight in 2010; he has also said he doesn't think Capcom "takes globalization seriously." His resignation announcement comes the day after Capcom released their latest financial numbers, which consisted of highs and lows. Dead Rising 2 sold 1.8 million copies, which helped, but Lost Planet 2's weak sales caused the net profit to slide significantly.  Capcom will replace Inafune with Katsuhiko Ichii, who will be helped along by a new development team, which Capcom hopes will take a "broader stroke approach to the development process."

Anyway, Inafune will be moving on and although he leaves quite the legacy behind, it seems obvious he was bitter and discontented. That's no way to be in a job...any job.

Well, I won't say that Inafune didn't have a major impact upon the industry during his time at the helm of Capcom, it's really unfortunate that he became so loathsome of his job and I think we can all agree that it was well past his time to step down.

Good luck to Mr. Ichii, I hope you can pick up where Mr. Infane left off (likely years ago).

I bet he was forced out. What company would want an increasingly bitter manchild in the spot light representing their company. He obviously had no respect for his employer. I've never seen a grown man whine so much about his job. He had a good job and was too busy wallowing in self pity to see how lucky he was. Don't let the door hit you on the ass.

Now, Wada...it's your turn.

Whoa there Jawknee, this is a Japanese business. Considering his apparent state of mind, the recent and disappointing financial results may have been enough for him to resign out of his own honor.

It's not like US business where executives that literally drive their companies, customers and country into the ground get paid bonuses and feel no shame or responsibility. Japanese executives (at least the more traditionally minded ones) feel a keen sense of responsibility to their company, employees, customers and country. They will bear the shame and responsibility for errors and bad performance, and even resign if it is the honorable (aka right) thing to do.

Imagine if some of those SOBs on Wall Street had taken personal responsibility for their terrible performance, awful (and sometimes downright criminal) decisions and mis-management. There ought to have been hundreds of senior executives in the Financial sectors that resigned out of the shame of what they presided over. How many actually resigned? How many were fired?

Japan is a very different culture, and resignations like this are not always the result of corporate maneuvers. Often times they are the result of a person's personal sense of honor, duty and responsibility. If I had a choice, I'd personally love to live in a culture where responsibility was taken that seriously.

Err, not sure what Wall Street a has to do with Capcom. This guys was embarrasment and I can see people wanting an embarrassment to leave for the sake of their company. I think your reaching a bit here. Again not sure what the crooks in Wall Street(and our government..Frank, Dodd) have to do with this. Not quite getting the analogy here.

Wall Street has nothing to do with Capcom. I was drawing a parallel with regard to executives feeling personal responsibility for the fates of their corporations, and I could think of no better modern example of a group of executives who should feel shame enough to resign because of their terrible performance and misdeed, and yet have not.

I just don't see the parallel. The current recession and mortgage melt down is far different than this. There are many people responsible, not just Wall Street. I agree with you, those people are shameless and should resign.

In this case, this guy was out constantly whining about his company, his job and his culture when it comes to the games he and his countryman create. If this was about honor than he would have kept his mouth shut and not gone out and disrespected his company and his co-workers with his pity parties. I think Capcom said enough is enough and told him to quietly resign since he hates his job anyway. I think Capcom's performance is a direct result of his attitude towards his job and the direction they wanted to take their company. He's been wanting to quite but didn't say when. i think maybe these financial numbers were the final nail in the coffin. Capcom probably said, "k, nows the time. Now quietly go away."

It's a win, win. Maybe now Capcom can get their heads out of their rears with new leadership and start making good games again and we don't have to hear the whining anymore. :)

Jawknee & Orvisman.

I made no political reference, there was no political intent behind my use of the disgraceful behavior of a specific sector of the corporate world in the US as an example of people that perhaps should have resigned in disgrace, but did not. It was as a contrast to Japanese business where people do still resign for reasons of principle. It was not a political statement. Frankly, I can't see how holding business people accountable for their terrible performance and mismanagement is in any way political.

The fact that you can't look past your own internal political agenda to see that is bad enough. But to take it further and bring politics into the discussion, where it was not warranted, is just annoying in the extreme.

I try very hard to steer clear of actual politics online because it's always incendiary. I would appreciate it if you and anyone else inclined to make a political discussion out of this, could take it to the forum, or email. This isn't the place.

These problems with Wall Street are political. They always have been.(ahem, community reinvestment act)We could say the same thing about your "agenda" to constantly blame the private sector and praise the state. But i didn't take it that far nor did i even think that. Wall Street is despicable but so are these politicians who took part in this collapse but you omitted them when decided to use Wall Street in your analogy. There is plenty of blame to go around, only blaming Wall Street to me seems unfair. That's the only reason i brought up Frank and Dodd.

I really wish you would stop accusing me being blinded by my so called "agenda". You're better than that. We should be able to debate and have a converstaion without dismissing each other views as political propaganda. Why am I "blinded" and you are not? are you trying to tell me your more enlightened than I?

All I am saying is we should be able to share our views on things without condescending to one another about who's more enlightened. Even though i think your wrong about the roll the state should have in peoples private lives, i try to respect you and your opinions. I think its only fair you do the same.

There is nothing political about wanting those responsible for corporate failure to act in a principled manner.

I'm pretty sure highlanders point is that the decision to leave was purely out of his own interest. It wasn't someone else pushing him out the door. Capcom is at a greater loss than he is, imo.

Wall street didn't do any justice by driving stocks out of institutions that weren't failing but did face stock value decrease. The point isn't to freak out and bail because of short term loss. Otherwise, you end up where we're now at. Obviously, this is only one piece of the puzzle but forget that.

I hope this guy brings on a genuine japanese gaming front that'll resurrect all that is great about japanese games.

Jawknee,

My point was clear for those that wish to see it. You are seeing things in my words that are not there. I have tried to keep this from becoming an argument, but three times now I have replied saying that there is no political aspect to using Wall Street as an example of unprincipled executives who don't do the right thing when they screw up. Whether those individuals are principled in their actions or not has nothing, zero, nada, nil, naught to do with politics. I have not and will not make politics an issue here, you have, and I wish you'd stop.

I'm honestly really ticked off because you have utterly derailed the discussion with this crap. I will not respond to another of your posts.

Good day sir.

I picked up Bionic Commando new from Best Buy for $9.99 about 6 months ago, or so. To this day, they still have copies of the game at $9.99 on their store shelf. Pretty sad.The game was sort of cool. It was one of the "better than 360 multi-plats."

But in general, it would seem all Capcom has that's a top tier product is SF4.
I'm not much into RE so I can't speak for that series anymore. Though, I did play through RE (PSX), RE:CV(DC), RE:Remake(GC), and I played both versions of RE4 (GC and PS2). I just lost interest in the series over the years so I never took the time to play anything more than a demo of RE5.

They just haven't done much in general. Their whole strategy this gen was to cater to the Xbox crowd. People forget that Capcom started off this generation thinking making Xbox exclusives was going to be good for business. Considering the Xbox doesn't sell well in Japan and that Capcom fans expected Capcom games and not some Western/Japanese hybrid games, that route was completely wrong. I don't think Capcom has learned much either, they still continue to provide exclusive content to the 360 and they still continue to make crap games like Dead Rising and Lost Planet.

I won't say RE5 was a bad game but it was a terrible Resident Evil. Here's hoping this event is the start of greener pastures for Capcom.

I think he bought himself time, Jawknee. His departure is scheduled for the end of November, but with accrued (paid) vacation time, he's taking off a month early. Capcom earlier this year put him in charge of overlooking DmC and Asura's Wrath, and if his lack of enthusiasm didn't happen overnight, this tells me Capcom wanted to keep him despite his bad PR and attitude.


But i agree. It's one thing to talk to your staff directly, and incite them to prove him wrong, and do better. It's another thing to go to the press, and outright say you hate your job. Not much room for mistranslation there.

Am I the only one who notices how on every thread I see at least a couple of people advertising cloth or whatever it's annoying?

No. They're bots. Best to report them by hitting the yellow triangle icon /!\ so Ben can delete them.

This is what's best for Capcom and for us gamers.
Great decision Inafune.

He had big contributions though, from Megan man to Street Fighter? Definitely legendary stuff there.

Hopefully this new Ichii guy "Easternizes" Capcom's games again!

Make it happen!
