Inafune: ‘I Still Get People Asking For Another Mega Man’
Keiji Inafune, creator of Mega Man, says he still has people asking him to make another game in the series.
Talking to us about Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, a title Inafune is producer of, we asked if there’s still room for the smaller arcade-orientated titles amongst the Call Of Dutys and BioShock Infinites of this gen.
“We know that Call Of Duty is major and BioShock Infinite is huge but there are still a lot of fans that have something for retro games and other games from the past,” answered Inafune.
“Every generation has its own games and trends. So people who know games and know its history as well, I still get people coming up saying “Mega Man, Mega Man, make another Mega Man, I want another Mega Man”, you know?
“So it seems there are still people who are looking for something else. There’s still an audience for games like this, an older style of arcade game where it’s mindless fun cutting up a bunch of enemies. Maybe it’s not the biggest genre right now but there are still people who enjoy that. For us, we want to make something that’s different, something that will stand out in that aspect. We’re not following trends, so maybe that gives us a chance to stand out. “
We’ll have the full interview and full impressions on the bloody Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z this week.
