Inafune: Okami, Viewtiful Joe, God Hand sequels "not likely or appealing," Mega Man 10 possible

Capcom's Kenji Inafune recently discussed titles developed by Clover Studios. Though Clover no longer exists, Capcom would still be able to create more titles for Viewtiful Joe, Okami, and God Hand. Inafune, however, has expressed zero interest in creating any new games for Viewtiful Joe, Okami, and God Hand, stating that "it's not very likely or appealing."

Sell Okami,VJ,God Hand Rights to PlatinumGames(Clover) if they aren't interested in it.

But it's a shame about Okami, regardless of sales, that was a great game. I hope they change their mind and make a sequel of that one someday.

My sentiments exactly.

Since the world is looking at recession...game devs are going to there bread and butter catalog for guaranteed revenue?

If anyone hasn't played VJ and wants to I recommend checking EB's used bin... I happened to find a copy for $3. Easily the biggest steal I've ever found for a game.

It's such a shame that none of these are getting sequels.

Okami is one of my all time favorite games ever.

Yeah Capcom seems more interested in making lackluster titles like Lost Planet than making original games anymore. Oh God what I wouldn't give for a new Breath of Fire game. Two of my favourite original PS era RPGs and I haven't seen a new one in about a decade. Maybe they should stop thinking like a corporation and start thinking as a developer.

Not getting the final installment of VJ is disappointing indeed...
Okami 2 would be an amazing experience on a HD console, but oh well.
Pity indeed... all three deserve sequels.

Simon_Brezhnev5390d ago

yeah thats what i want another Onimusha game, i think Onumsha 1 and Onimusha Dawn of dreams the best in the series

ultimolu5390d ago (Edited 5390d ago )

I think 1, 3, and Dawn of Dreams were the best. Onimusha 2 kinda sucked, :x

TheColbertinator5390d ago

Onimusha 3 rocked.Too bad I only rented it once and forgot to buy it

Zackstorm5390d ago

Okami definitely deserves a sequel. It was such new fresh game.
