No, this isn’t Photoshopped…
Ever since he’s left Capcom, follow-up on what Keiji Inafune’s been doing with himself has been few and far between. He seems to have started a new studio, but surprisingly enough, the next thing we’ll see him working on isn’t related to that or Capcom at all. Here’s a video that shows him off around the 0:15 mark:
The video is a very shaky clip of the upcoming Japanese RPG Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2, the sequel of the first Hyperdimension Neptunia that released in America this past February. In Mk-2, Mr. Inafune appears as a summon, similar in concept to Shiva or Gilgamesh from the Final Fantasy series. The above video, in fact, shows how he is summoned in the game.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk-2 is scheduled for an August 18th release in Japan, with no word of an overseas release just yet.
