Level-5 Comcept

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has confirmed that Level-5 have purchased Comcept and has been rebranded as Level-5 Comcept.

You can view some highlights from the interview with Level-5 President and CEO Akihiro Hino, and Comcept founder Keiji Inafune down below..

  • From around the time we worked together on Guild 02, there have been talks about doing something together.
  • Inafune: “I had the thought that I wanted to become like Hino since around when I was at Capcom.”
  • To easily describe it, Level-5 Comcept is a company that combines the philosophies of both companies.
  • It is a new company with the base staff of Comcept and the involvement of Akihiro Hino.
  • Inafune: Although there are plans to close Comcept as it currently stands in the future, I will take responsibility for the titles I’m working on until the end.
  • Level-5 Comcept is a subsidiary of Level-5. To paint a picture, instead of receiving instruction and then working on a title, it is a place where the Comcept team and Hino will make games together.
  • Level-5 Comcept is based in Osaka. In the future, they want it to play the role of Level-5’s Osaka studio.
  • Currently, Level-5 Comcept is made up of about 15 people, who are mostly Comcept members, but they want to gradually recruit staff from here on.
  • The goal is to make games that show that they’re in the league of Inafune.
