Keiji Inafune launches two new companies

Former Capcom global head of production Keiji Inafune has announced the launch of two new companies today; one focused around game development, the other centered around entertainment in general.

Intercept is Inafune’s game development studio, which he refers to as “my new challenge fro consumer game development.” Three key terms define the company’s motives: Originality (cannot be copied by others), Gravity (can pull people in), and Beyond the Age (games that cross eras).

The Shinagawa, Tokyo-based company has a capital of 10 million yen. It’s official site can be seen through here.

Comcept is Inafune’s entertainment company. Based in Osaka and with a capital of 10 million yen, their area of business includes everything from consumer game planning to mobile content planning to books and music planning to event planning. They’re very broad planners, it seems.

See Comcept’s official site through here.

Inafune will host a “user press conference” on April 4 where he will discuss his plans for the future. The conference, originally scheduled for March 15, was delayed after the devastating earthquake and tsunami that shook Japan on March 11. Details on how to view the conference can be found here, though it’s likely it’ll be in Japanese.

Thanks, Andriasang.
