Viewtiful Joe dev. closing

In a shocking turn of events, Capcom has decided to close Clover Studio, the development team reponsible for critically-acclaimed titles like Okami, Viewtiful Joe, and God Hand, which was just released in North America this Tuesday. "Clover Studio Co., Ltd. has met the goal of developing unique and creative original home video game software," Capcom tells CVG. However, "in view of promoting a business strategy that concentrates management resources on a selected business to enhance the efficiency of the development power of the entire Capcom group, the dissolution of Clover Studio Co., Ltd. has been raised and passed at a Board of Directors' meeting." The closure takes effect in March of 2007. UPDATE: A Wired source says the Clover team is considering forming an independent studio. In fact, this may be the real reason for the split.
