The development team behind Okami has found itself neatly excised from the credits section of the Nintendo Wii port.
The now-defunct Clover Studios team, which operated under Capcom, were removed from the game's end credits in a port also published by Capcom.
Game Director Hideki Kamiya expressed disappointment at the slight.
"I feel dejected, and not only because my own name has been erased from my creation," Kamiya wrote on his blog. "Of course we have pride in our work and we want to scream 'We made this!' from the top of our lungs. But more than that, the fact that they cut the entire staff is utterly deplorable."
Capcom defended the move with an explanation unlikely to convince even A/V amateurs, saying the credits had to be removed carte blanche because it was a "pre-rendered movie that contained the Clover logo."
