Clover vets reunite, form Seeds

Clover vets reunite, form Seeds
Hideki Kamiya, Atsushi Inaba, and Shinji Mikami resurface with new game development studio.
By Brendan Sinclair, GameSpot

We'll see what sprouts from these seeds.

Shortly after Capcom announced the dismantling of Okami developer Clover last year, it was revealed that two of the studio's big names--Viewtiful Joe producer Atsushi Inaba and Devil May Cry director Hideki Kamiya--had already left the company in search of "fresh challenges."

They appear to have found one, as the pair are listed on the Japanese language site for upstart developer Seeds, along with fellow Clover veteran and Resident Evil creator, Shinji Mikami. While Kamiya and Inaba had left Capcom entirely, Mikami last year was still working for Capcom as a contracted producer.

Viewtiful Joe producer Atsushi Inaba.

According to Seeds' Web site, the studio was formed in August of last year with Inaba as president, and has so far grown to employ 51 people. The group is even looking to expand more, with the site hosting a call for producers and creative talent.

"We are a group of creators who have already created colorful products," the site reads. "Now, standing on new ground, and even as the soil has changed, our passion to pursue new play [fun] hasn't changed. We are challenging ourselves on a global scale to create entertainment products with a new, fresh feeling. We need more seeds."

Clover Studios is expected to be officially dissolved next month. Remaining staff has recently been working on the PAL versions of Okami and God Hand.

Excellent news, I can't wait to see what Seeds first game is like.

Given Microsoft's strategy of how they develop japanese games for the 360, they should be funded by MS in ....3..........2.............

I hope not, but I wouldn't be surprised. Still, those guys are essentially Capcom. We'll see what they can do on their own. Should be interesting.

Please please dont let MS fund them... I hate how Ex Square Enix funded Mistwalker because they wanted to be independent and instead became MS's bitch. I am not saying Sony should buy them either but they should be independent instead of being funded by any company

They must merge with Konami for the ultimate game creator. DMC guy could be in charge of a 3D Castlevania. This must be done as I have spoken.

I wouldn't mind them being with Konami at all since there one of my favorite companies.

Though, THEY CAN'T MAKE VIEWTFUL JOE/OKAMI games. The names are owned by Capcom.

Then how would they get the capital to make games?

Somebody has to step up obviously.
