Based in Chūo-ku, UsefulNotes/{{Osaka}}, Clover Studio was a game developer under Creator/{{Capcom}}. Clover consisted largely from its parent company's Research and Development department, created in 2004 to exercise greater creative freedom in game development. The company began with ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'' as an internal team in 2005, a BeatEmUp that ended up spawning multiple games. To facilitate development, the team would turn into a studio of its own. Clover would later focus on creating new IP's, releasing ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' and ''VideoGame/GodHand'' in 2006. Despite largely positive reception and later on becoming {{Cult Classic}}s, the games were commercial failures on release, with the latter peforming even worse. Not helped as well were CreativeDifferences, with developers feeling that Capcom's management became reluctant to trying out new ideas; this resulted in multiple developers resigning. With Clover having become a shell of its former self, Capcom [[http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/news/html/e061012a.html disintegrated the company in March 2007]].
