Mugen Souls’ Keiji Inafune is not the real Keiji Inafune

New Keiji Inafune producing Compile Heart RPG.

Contrary to our earlier report, Mugen Souls, announced in this week’s Dengeki (for PlayStation 3, it’s been confirmed), is not being produced by Keiji Inafune. The magazine lists the producer as Keiji Shin Inafune, or New Keiji Inafune. Apparently, New Keiji Inafune and the former Capcom Keiji Inafune are two different people.

When Compile Heart launched their teaser site last week, it was decorated with the former Capcom Inafune, and claimed that Inafune had become overall producer at Capcom. Technically, they weren’t lying, because New Keiji Inafune is producing Mugen Souls. It explains the whole ‘Keiji Inafune is old‘ thing.

Confused? You’re not the only one.

Speaking with the magazine, New Keiji Inafune says he has much respect for the real Inafune, and is a big fan of Mega Man.

A few additional details have come out following last night’s leak.

Mugen Souls follow the story of Shu Shu Infinite, a girl with the special ab ility to change her personality and form. She normally spends her time traveling the world, stealing ships, but she’s since become determined to take of the world of “Nanayokai.” In Nanayokai, each day of the week is a new world, each with its own hero and demon.

G Castle, a ship Shu Shu stole and reformed, is your base of operations. Here you’ll create a character, customize costumes, hair style, accessories, voice, and so on. The character’s are based of Selfy Town.

In battle, you’ll deal ridiculous amounts of damage and hit high combos. One screenshot shows a 9356-hit combo at 99999999, totaling at 933278156872 damage. Shu Shu and party members can form a tower, standing on the enemy, and make them spin around and hit things.

Mugen Souls will release in March for PlayStation 3. The standard edition will retail for 7,329 yen and the special edition, which includes a DVD and Nenodroid Puchi figures, for 9,429 yen.
