Mega Man fans who are attending the Penny Arcade Expo from August 30th to September 2nd are in for a special treat, as none other than Keiji Inafune will be in attendance! Those hoping to see the man who many hail as the "Father of Mega Man" will have the opportunity to do so on Saturday, August 31st from 4:30pm to 5:30pm in the Kraken Theater. The event's description is as follows:
Keiji Inafune: From 8-bit to Next-Gen, and Beyond
Celebrated as the “father of Mega Man,” but branded as an outspoken critic of the Japanese game industry, ex-Capcom honcho Keiji Inafune’s frank talk, controversial opinions, and – most of all – his games have made many fans (and maybe a few enemies) on both sides of the Pacific. Join us for an informal chat through Inafune’s 25 year career: where console gaming began, how it’s changed over the years, and what’s coming next – both for the industry and for Inafune himself.
For those who are not able to attend, worry not, for the panel will also be viewable via livestream. Stay tuned, as we'll provide more information on that as it becomes available.
