Gunslinger Stratos Reloaded to sunset less than two months after its launch

    
42

Call it Gunslinger Stratos Unloaded.

Square Enix’s colorful action title Gunslinger Stratos Reloaded officially launched in Japan six days ago, and yet it’s already been marked for extermination. The studio announced that it will be shutting down the title in the country on March 29th due to a lack of player interest. No new accounts can be made between now and its sunset.

Things weren’t looking so hot for GSR during its beta period, with servers coming off as a “ghost town.” Square Enix never mentioned whether or not this game was slated to come to the west, but now that it’s closing in Japan, it’s probably a safe bet that we’ll never see it now.

Probably the suggestion that it wouldn’t fail in the West. To add to that, I watched some YouTube videos of it and the game play looked very repetitive. It may have been fun for about 15 minutes but I had kind of an Evolve vibe from it.

It’s annoying that they’re doing that, isn’t it? You’ll have to forgive us though…most of us aren’t that rude.

Siphaed I assume they expected to make a game based off the games, since they were games about 3 years before they were an anime.

Armsbend Just to be clear it was the use of the word integrity that did it? I’ll admit I don’t follow them to close.

I called it! I freakin’ called it!

The show was mediocre with a horribly told story full of plot holes, bad character writing, and just an overall feel of blandness. And they actually expected to make a show off of that?   Nope.  Bad anime doesn’t make a good game; it makes a bad game.
