Nier Developer Cavia Shutting Down

Did you like Nier? How about Bullet Witch? Okay, so developer Cavia's recent track record isn't great, but it's still sad to hear that the Japanese studio (known primarily for the Drakengard series) will cease to exist after it is absorbed into AQ Interactive.

In an interview with Japanese site 4gamer (via andriasang), the Nier team revealed that the Cavia development staff is being brought under the AQ Interactive umbrella, and that Nier will be the final project bearing the Cavia name.

The brand has been around for a while, but since Cavia never had a huge presence in North America, most gamers this side of the Pacific probably won't notice much of a difference.
