Mega Man creator quits Capcom after 23 years
Kenji Inafune, the man behind the Mega Man, has decided that he wants to leave Capcom after 23 years of service to the Japanese publisher/developer.
Inafune submitted his resignation last Tuesday (19th of October) which makes his official departure date the end of November, although he will take his remaining holidays at the end of October.
He said: "I'm leaving Capcom with the intention of starting my life over. People that really know me, can see where I'm coming from. I'm not a regular dude. It's probably because I'm strange."
It is believed he will be replaced as the head of research and development by Jun Takeuchi.
