I've also updated the Wildstorm Trading Card Feature with some pictures of the box, cards, and wrappers. Its a minor update but It was something the feature was missing.
Next-Gen has a new interview with Capcom USA marketing VP Charles Bellfield. It goes over a whole range of topics, from the Clover Studios dissolution to Devil May Cry 4. He also confirms that Mikami is still attatched to Capcom since his "leaving" the company last year.
So despite what you may hear at other websites, Mikami is still with the company since signing a new contract in November of 2005. As unlike other websites we actually read the articles and present what they tell you, not the complete opposite.Let me start with Mikami. Mikami-san remains and is retained as a contracted producer of Capcom. So he’s actually still part of the company. He’s a contracted producer which is a pretty standard crossover there. And he’s actually doing most of [the development in Japan].
Inaba-san and Kam—Kamiya—they have both left the company. So they’re no longer affiliated with Capcom, and to be very honest with you I actually don’t know what they’re doing next, but they are no longer with Capcom.
He also clarifies Mikami's position and lets us know Mikami is currently working on a project!:
Its a pretty lengthy read, so head on over to Next-Gen now!I know what he’s working on but I can’t tell you that one because we haven’t said anything yet. But it’s a contracted basis. There are two ways to do a contract and I actually don’t know which one it is, to be perfectly honest, but there are two ways. A contracted basis is either for a period of time and renewable, so maybe a two-year contract, a five-year contract, it might be a one-year contract, I don’t know. Or it might be for a title contract, as if we … were contracting with an external developer in many ways. But in this case he is contracted as an internal producer within Capcom. But as you know he’s contracted as an employee, per se, and not as part of an external development studio.
