More details of Clover closure

Big names still hard at work.

More details have emerged of regarding Capcom's decision to close Clover Studio, the developer behind the likes of Viewtiful Joe, Okami and God Hand.

According to US website Gamespot, Devil May Cry director Hideki Kamiya and Atsushi Inaba, producer of Steel Battallion and Viewtiful Joe, left the company in July and June of this year respectively.

But a Capcom UK representative has told our sister site,, that both Kamiya and Inaba are "still working for Capcom on a contractual basis" - as is Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami.

The representative also confirmed that PAL versions of Clover's forthcoming titles Okami and God Hand "will definitely release in February, as scheduled".

Capcom announced the closure of Clover last week. The studio's doors will officially close in March next year.
