Hardcore perma-death MMORPG Wizardry Online just can’t catch a break: MMO Culture reports today that the game is shutting down in Japan, five years after its launch there.

Over in the west, the game ran just a year and a half under SOE’s┬ápre-Daybreak MMO umbrella; it was shut down here almost exactly two years ago along with Vanguard, Free Realms, and Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures (though there were rumors last year that Suba Games might try to revive it).

Gamepot, the Japanese publisher, says its version will close in December thanks to poor “market conditions.”
