A portion of a GameSpot interview with Keiji Inafune…
GS: There’s a “Collaboration” section on your website, but it’s empty right now. What sort of people are you looking to collaborate with?
KI: It’s amazing because we just opened our English website today, so I’m happy you mentioned it. Under Collaboration, it probably said “Coming Soon.” I’m looking to announce big collaborations with people you didn’t imagine before, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be games. Because I’m on my own and away from my past life, I want to do whatever I couldn’t do before in my former responsibilities. So I really want you to stay tuned and we really want to announce big collaborations.
GS: [To translator]: Did I hear him mention Capcom there?
Translator: Yes, he wants to do big collaborations he couldn’t have done when he was at Capcom.
KI: But if we came up with a collaboration with Capcom, that would surprise you as well, right? It’s not on my list right now, but it could happen.
GS: What are your thoughts on the Wii U so far?
KI: I can’t comment too much about it because I haven’t touched it yet, but whenever Nintendo comes out with something new, it’s always good. So I’m confident it must be impressive. If I get a chance, I always want to try out creating for a new platform. So I’m looking forward to that chance. The same thing could go for the Wii U because it’s part of the challenge in evolution, and it’s a challenge in motion control. It’s in that testing stage, so I’m really interested.
