First unveiled at Gamescom, Gun Loco was one of Square Enix’s riskier games. Defined as a sprint action shooter, Gun Loco had players run, slide, and shoot each other. The game was set on a prison planet with wacky inmates and used plastic models as the base for the character models. A playable build was shown at Tokyo Game Show last year.
Gun Loco was slated for release only on Xbox 360 this year, but the game won’t be released. Square Enix announced today development on Gun Loco has ceased. No specific reason was given regarding why the game has been canceled. I suppose the winner(s?) of theme song contest will be the most bummed to hear the news.
