After developing Nier, Cavia was dissolved and rebranded as an AQ Interactive studio. AQ Interactive also owns two other console development studios, Artoon and Feelplus, and both of these studios are now part of a general AQ Interactive development teams. Microcabin and widget/social game maker Linkthink appear to be unaffected.
Artoon developed Yoshi’s Island DS, Vampire Rain, and Blinx: The Time Sweeper. The studio is currently developing Flingsmash for Nintendo. Feelplus’ first project was Lost Odyssey before moving on to Ju-On: The Grudge and most recently N3 II: Ninety-Nine Nights. Mindjack and Necromachina, which are being published by Square Enix, are two titles in development at Feelplus.
