When a guy of Keiji Inafune's caliber agrees to have an interview with you and says he's interested in a collaboration, you will need more than a pinch and a slap across the face to get you back down to Earth. The guy is, after all, a legend. That's what happened to the guys at Bungie, who managed to sit down with Capcom's legendary R&D man.
In case you didn't know, Keiji Inafune is responsible from bringing us Mega Man, Onimusha, and has also had a hand in other major Capcom franchises like Street Fighter and Resident Evil. Such are the creds of this guy who just expressed interest in working with the guys behind Halo.
So says Inafune-san:
Bungie is an amazing studio that has made incredible games. So I was always curious about how they made their games in hopes of being up to add some of the flavor into Capcom games. Also, I wanted to come down to Bungie in order to see just how well our philosophies on game design matched up. If things clicked, I know it would be interesting to collaborate together on a title in the future.
Interesting indeed. Mega Man FPS? Nah, maybe they'd best stay away from the crossovers and go with new IP - that is if such a collaboration will ever take place.
