Keiji Inafune named Idea Factory head producer

Inafune getting around after Capcom departure.

Compile Heart launched a new teaser site yesterday, claiming Mega Man creator and former Capcom star Keiji Inafune is, in fact, old. Today, the site launched a video, claiming Inafune has become overall producer at Idea Factory, and his new game in development.

Inafune is also head of two companies–Comcept and Intercept–which he founded in April this year. Yesterday, Intercept announced its first game: a 3DS title called KAIO: King of Pirates. His relationship with Idea Factory kicked off after his appearance in Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2.

Thanks, Andriasang.
