Oh dear. Looks like Keiji Inafune’s not having any fun anymore.

The Capcom R&D boss has admitted in an interview he’s unhappy at his job and wants to “retire early.”

Surely he’s bluffing and he actually likes his job, right?

“It’s the opposite,” he said. That’ll be a no, then.

“I hate it! I want to retire early and take it easy.”

He also talked about how he could possibly do a small bit of work on a Capcom title and get paid a huge amount of money for it. But he won’t. He’s not like that, you see.

“There are loads of creators like that,” said Inafune. “But I’m not like that. If things are difficult while they are doing it, they can become a leader and a creator.”
