First Inafune is displeased with Japanese developers, then with his own company’s management… and now he hates his job. What will please Inafune? Retirement!
In a interview with a Japanese gaming outlet, the interviewee, and probably most of us, assumed Keiji Inafune, creator of Mega Man, Dead Rising, and many more franchises, loved his job. Inafune corrected him saying this actually wasn’t the case. “It’s the opposite. I hate it! I want to retire early and take it easy.”
Inafune says that developers who like their jobs can take it easy and work on a single title and still get paid a full salary. “There are loads of creators like that. But I’m not like that. If things are difficult while they are doing it, they can become a leader and a creator.”
It seems kind of strange as Inafune, in general, seems like some one who would enjoy his work. Oh well, at least he has Mega Man Legends 3 on the way.
