Seeds To Become Platinum Games

Representatives of Seeds, the studio headed by former Clover Studio CEO Atsushi Inaba and a number of other prominent ex-Clover and Capcom staff (Okami, God Hand) have announced a new partnership with ODD Corporation and a studio rename to Platinum Games.

The company made the announcement on its website, but little more information has yet been announced on the nature of the relationship or any tentative details of currently planned projects.

The studio, run by headed by Inaba, as well as Devil May Cry creator Hideki Kamiya and Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami was first formed at the beginning of this year, after Capcom dissolved the Clover studio in October of 2006.

The only reason given for the dissolution was a short statement, which reads: “Clover Studio has met the goal of developing unique and creative original home video game software, 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 has been raised and passed at a Board of Directors' meeting.”
