As a rule, I don't like to post links to hugely popular, hugely corporate sites like 1up. It's a great site and all, but I just don't think they need the extra exposure. I make exceptions for interviews like this one, where Keiji Inafune calls out the Dead Rising for being "incomplete" and its development team for doing "a decent job (at) making an American-style hamburger, but it still remained somewhat a Japanese-tasting hamburger". Not only is it validating to hear that I'm not the only one that thinks that Dead Rising is awesome but flawed-tasting, but there is also talk here of Dead Rising 2, Mega Man 10, Mega Man Legends 3, and the potential for a new Strider.

The only bad news to be found in the interview is that Keiji seems to have no interest in reviving any of the series that Clover Studios produced for Capcom, which means chances of a new God Hand, Viewtiful Joe, or Okami are slim. Maybe Capcom is just waiting for Platinum Studios (which used to be Clover Studios) to end their exclusive deal with Sega, with hopes that then they'll come back to Capcom to work on their old franchises. I know that's what I'm hoping for, because after playing as Joe in Tatsunoko Vs Capcom, I've never been more hungry for a viewtiful-tasting hamburger.
