    This is a sad day indeed. The guys behind Viewtiful Joe and Okami??? Ugh...
    Source.

    I am sure all involved will do well within the industry, as they are all immensely talented and have remarkable vision. I would ideally like someone else to pick them all up and allow them to continue their beautiful and creative tradition as a team. We'll see about that though...;(

    This probably isn't as bad as it sounds. From what i've read on other forums the split was to allow Clover to make their own way. Whether this was due to with a disagreement with Capcom I don't know. Hopefully they'll stick to the whacky and crazy games that made them so popular.

    I hope Clover still has the IP rights to their games.

    This is just sad, just sad. I can't blaim capcom. They are a business and they need to make a profit, unfortunatly beautiful original games do not net so much profit thease days.

    I can't speak for God Hand, but Okami and VJ were serious breaths of fresh air in an entirely too stale industry. Like Psychonauts was too. :D
