Mega Man creator celebrates birthday.

Mega Man creator and former Dead Rising producer Keiji Inafune is 47 years-old today. (It’s May 8 in Japan.)

In a post on his blog today, the Comcept boss said he’s become an old man.

“However,” said Inafune, “if you were to meet a typical salary man around the same age, would it be obvious what sort of person I was?

“If you’re in the game industry, everyone appears relatively young, though I don’t feel out of place, that’s what makes this industry special.

“I’m 47 years old, thank you.”

Inafune is currently working on an unannounced PlayStation Vita title and Kaio: King of Pirates for 3DS.

    Keiji + Capcom = Megaman/X
    Megaman/X= Great
    Keiji + Inafune = Zero
    Megaman + Zero = AMAZING
    Zero – Megaman = Megaman Zero
    Megaman Zero = BADASS
    Zero + X + Boy = Megaman ZX

    and it continues lol.

    What I’m getting at is that despite capcom not wanting X to look like how Keiji intended (like zero)….Keiji’s character (yes Zero) STILL came out on top as the most important :)……I <3 U Keiji.

    Happeh Birthday, Inafune-san! Hope that as you get older, you stop hating less and less on Japan and the Japanese gaming industry, and that your forthcoming game projects are awesome as your classic games were :3
