Inafune would be open to Capcom publishing Mighty No. 9

Working with a publisher isn’t something that Comcept is forced to consider. Thanks to generous donations received on Kickstarter, the game can be released independently.

But let’s talk hypotheticals. Say Capcom were to approach creator Keiji Inafune and the team at Comcept about handling publishing duties. Is this something Inafune would be open to? To put it simply: yes.

Inafune told Game Informer this month:

“I would hear their terms. If they had the best terms, I would go with Capcom. There is no reason not to publish with Capcom, and I certainly don’t feel like there’s a reason that I have to publish with Capcom. Literally, it would be a very cut-and-dried business negotiation. If they had the best terms, the logical businessman in me would say, ‘Yes, let’s go with them.’”

What would make Capcom publishing Mighty No. 9 particularly interesting is how Inafune would be returning to the company he started out with (and eventually left), in a sense. But again, the game could very well end up without a publisher – and no one would really mind that.

    very interesting! It would be interesting if Capcom published it…. But don’t ruin it with crazy DLCs Capcom!

    So… the kickstarter was pointless? $3M and they can’t self-publish?

    • LordDisco

      $4 million, and if you read the article, yes, they can self-publish. This was just hypothetical.

  • Gus Duenes

    i feel like its a slap to the people who are supporting him

    • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

      Why exactly? I supported the game and I don’t feel backstabbed at all. Of course this is hypothetical, but if it reached high enough numbers for capcom to want to throw more money at them to make a better game and get part of the cut, its because of the fans who supported the game in the first place!

      • Gus Duenes

        well, think about it. the reason he went to kickstarter was to self publish his game, no strings attached. but if he goes with capcom all that money would have been for nothing and is probably going into his wallet instead of the game. knowning capcom they are going to alter the game in some way that will ultimately destroy his vision.

        • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

          That’s only if he’s retarded because he’s not forced to accept Capcom’s terms and work with them. He has enough money to be in the upper hand of a negotiation, is he decides to work with capcom, he won’t let it have much say in the game.. Just like Nintendo is doing with Bayonetta 2

          • Gus Duenes

            his kickstarter money is nothing compared to what capcom can offer. the whole reason why he started a kickstarter was for money and if capcom says “hey we will triple you current funds and you can keep the kickstarter money in your pocket as long as we have rights to your ip” im pretty sure he wouldn’t hesitate to say yes. he does mention that as long as it’s a good deal he would join. it’s aaaallllllll money because if it wasn’t he would even have capcom in his head

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            Exactly, I agree with all that. And still doesn’t mean he would have to do whatever Capcom tells him to, he already has a good formula that fans want and its proven since everyone game his money, so Capcom is a little tied in terms of telling him what to do if he doesn’t want to do it. It all depends on how the contract would be.. It’s very possible that if this does end up happening, he will retain full creative control over the product and capcom woud fund it only to stay with the profit of selling it (which will probably be A LOT)
