Influential Mega Man designer Keiji Inafune is working on a new PlayStation Vita game, the developer implied tonight at the 2012 Game Developers Conference.
Speaking during a session titled “The Future of Japanese Games,” Inafune said that new hardware pushes developers creatively and noted that he’s been working on the PS Vita before stopping to note he wasn’t supposed to talk about that.
He did not reveal any additional information regarding the mystery title, or indicate which of his new companies (Comcept or Intercept) is behind the project.
Inafune resigned from Capcom in October 2010 after spending 23 years with the company. He originally joined Capcom as a graphic designer, working on the first Street Fighter. He went on to create the character design for Mega Man and then worked on the game’s many sequels before graduating to the role of producer.
