Rockin8080 (thanks!) informs us O3 Entertainment is pulling the plug on the much delayed Radio Allergy through a forum post on their official boards.
Radio Allergy for the Nintendo GameCube has been canceled in North America. Due to the transition to new gaming platforms, retailers are no longer interested in stocking GameCube titles. Milestone is exploring options to bring this to North America as part of a future compilation on the Wii.
O3 Entertainment is deeply disappointed we could not publish this title for the GameCube. To our fans we pledge that every effort was put forth to make it available.
Sad to see it go, O3 Entertainment has a valid point. Step into any mainstream retail store and see how little Gamecube space there is. The idea of a collection Milestone shooter for the Wii sounds brilliant, but why do that when O3 Entertainment could make Karous (Crows), Radio Allergy and Chaos Field downloadable Wii channels and skip the whole retail sector. Since stores are pushing Gamecube games don’t expect the two other Naruto games or Skip’s Giftpia to come out either.
