Financial Crisis Makes Tetsuya Mizuguchi Cancel A Project


imageWhat is Q Entertainment founder Tetsuya Mizuguchi up to these days? Aside from traveling to the Big Island for a wedding he was starting a new project, which no longer exists.


Mizuguchi laments explains in his blog he canceled the project due to the current financial crisis. Q Entertainment also went through organizational restructuring last month. And Mizuguchi came down with a case of gout. Ouch.


Not all is bad for the music focused designer! The Genki Rockets performed at Shibuya hotspot Womb and at the Mado Lounge in Roppongi.


Sometime this year Q Entertainment will release Qubed, a compilation of their Xbox Live Arcade games on a retail disc. Atari was supposed to publish Qubed in the spring, but we haven’t seen it yet. Gamefly says it’s coming out in the fall. The studio is also somewhat involved in Ninety-Nine Nights II, which is being developed by Feelplus.


Hmm… I wonder what the canceled project was. Could it be Rock Band: Japan? We haven’t heard about that since the official announcement. On the other hand it might not be game related. Mizuguchi deals with music groups too.
