Steals other developers' powers before leaving

After some 23 years, Capcom's Keiji Inafune has decided to leave the company. Inafune is best known for designing the popular Mega Man character, as well as heading up titles like Onimusha and Dead Rising.  

Most recently he was kind of a big deal over at Capcom as the head of "Research and Development and Online Business and Global Head of Production." Maybe he got tired of saying all of that when people asked him what he did.  

"A manager's work means evaluating your subordinates and speaking your dreams," he wrote in a blog translated by Kotaku. "Anyone who can do both of those can be a manager. I thought that when I came here, and I still think that now."  

Part of his reasons for leaving, he explains, is that he's progressed so far through Capcom's corporate structure that "there's nowhere higher" to go. He adds that he doesn't intend to stop working, instead pursuing new and more challenging opportunities, although he gives no specifics.
