Keiji Inafune’s J.J. Rockets And No More Heroes Social Game Go Offline In Japan

You know how Level-5 has the Guild 01 series which has notable Japanese video game designers working on bite sized 3DS games? MarvelousAQL did something similar with DeNA and started the Super Creators line which had new mobile games made by comcept CEO Keiji Inafune, Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi Suda, and Crafts & Meister CEO Noritaka Funamizu.

 

J.J. Rockets, the neat Mega Man-like game where you play as the President of the United States who transforms into a superhero that destroys mutants, is part of the Super Creators series. J.J. Rockets was only released in Japan and unfortunately even if you’re in Japan you can’t play it. Someone pulled the plug on all of the Super Creator games. No More Heroes: World Ranker and Craft & Meister’s Combo Kimaru are also offline.

 

No More Heroes: World Ranker let players create their own assassin and fight to become the top ranked killer in the world.

Combo Kimaru is a fighting game / social game hybrid.

    Japan actually makes social/mobile games worth checking out. A shame they never get localized. I hope Capcom still releases Monster Hunter: Massive Hunting here.

    WHY? Why didn’t this Keiji Inafuna Game not Come To America and Canceled?

  • Elvick

    And this is why social games aren’t worth much time to me.

      Right, I don’t even really bother myself with games that don’t have a heavy/moderate single player focus for the same reasons. The only exceptions are fighting games, and really only Smash and anime fighters, since I’m awful at anything traditional.

        Interesting looking online only games make me sad, because eventually… they’re just going to be gone. :/

        Such a waste.

    JJ Rockets looks pretty cool, actually. A shame it got canned.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      It wasn’t canned, but rather shut down.

      • Lester Paredes

        That equates the same as canned. As in cancelled. Which is the same as shut down.

    So… people can’t even download these games and play them single player? I mean I get that’s what happens with online games, but this looked like a Megaman-clone: what about it made it necessary to be always online in the first place?

    Also- what was the reason these were sent offline? Sales too low?

    These games looked pretty fun, shame they got shut down though, I would have at least tried it on an android or ipad platform here in the west.
