is a Japan-based independent video game developer based in both Tokyo and Osaka. It was founded on December 1, 2010 by former Capcom employee Keiji Inafune. The name Comcept is a combination of the words concept, which is the base of a video game, and com, referring to the abbreviation of computer.
Keiji Inafune founded Comcept right after his departure from Capcom in December 2010, where he could seek for his next challenge. After the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3, which he mentioned as a "long-time held dream", he thought that "not only had he abandoned himself, but the fans too". The studio is largely composed of veteran staff who worked on Mega Man, but also young staff who grew up with the franchise.
In September 2012, the team's first project was revealed as a new Ninja Gaiden title, named Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, released in March 2014.
In 2013, Comcept (Inafune in particular) helped Sony Computer Entertainment and their Japan Studio designing the PlayStation Vita-exclusive Soul Sacrifice and will continue with its sequel, Soul Sacrifice Delta.
At PAX Prime 2013, Keiji Inafune held a special panel in order to reveal a brand new project called Mighty No. 9, a spiritual successor to Mega Man. At the end of the panel, Inafune officially launched the game's Kickstartercampaign. He thought that Kickstarter is a great way to make dreams a reality. After a highly successful campaign, the game is set to release in 2016.This article uses material from the Wikipedia article Comcept, which is released under the CreativeCommons Attribution-Share-Alike License 3.0.
