Keiji Inafune says “it’s totally my fault”.
Comcept’s Mighty No. 9, the spiritual successor to Mega Man which saw numerous delays after being successfully funded on Kickstarter, hasn’t exactly met with the greatest of praise by critics. It also didn’t help that a mistranslated statement from creator Keiji Inafune stating it was “better than nothing” began to circulate.
As it turns out, Inafune is actually taking full responsibility for the game’s problems. Speaking to Eurogamer, he said, “You know, I want to word this in a way to explain some of the issues that come with trying to make a game of this size on multiple platforms.
“I’m kind of loath to say this because it’s going to sound like an excuse and I don’t want to make any excuses. I own all the problems that came with this game and if you want to hurl insults at me, it’s totally my fault. I’m the key creator. I will own that responsibility.”
The work across numerous platforms has also been a stated reason for the game being delayed on so many occasions. Whether you enjoy the game or not – and many certainly are not – at least Inafune seems keen to learn from his mistakes. Stay tuned for more information on the matter in the coming days.
