News: Keiji Inafune has made Comic-Con the place to be.
When gamers think of Capcom, they think of Keiji Inafune, the creator of many of the company's landmark franchises such as Mega Man, Dead Rising and Lost Planet. After this year's San Diego Comic-Con, he will have another game on his resume as Capcom has announced Inafune will be making an "exciting new game announcement" at the convention.
While Capcom didn't offer any hints as to what Inafune might be announcing (although he was credited as "the father of Mega Man" and not "the creator of Dead Rising"), they did detail a packed Comic-Con lineup that'll include Dead Rising 2, Marvel vs Capcom 3 and the rest of the company's 2010 release calendar.
