Mighty No. 9 creator Keiji Inafune will attend Anime Expo as a guest of honour this year, the convention’s website reveals (thanks, ANN). Inafune will hold a Q&A panel and autograph sessions at the event.
Known best for co-creating the Mega Man series, Inafune has since been involved in a number of games produced by Capcom over the years, including Dead Rising and Lost Planet. Following his departure from the company, Inafune began collaborating with other developers on titles like Soul Sacrifice and YAIBA: Ninja Gaiden Z.
At present, Inafune is working on Mighty No. 9 in collaboration with Inti Creates and is also developing KAIO: King of Pirates with Marvelous AQL, both through his development studio, Comcept.
Anime Expo will be held from July 3rd – 6th.
