Well, That’s It For Square Enix’s Gyrozetter


image Square Enix is shutting service down for the Gyrozetter arcade game on February 2, 2014. The series will go out with one last Arcadia Grand Prix event scheduled for November and December.


Gyrozetter machines started popping up in arcades last year and were quickly followed by a manga and anime series. Square Enix also released a Nintendo 3DS game, which didn’t sell that well. Basically, Gyrozetter was Square Enix’s experiment with a mixed media series like Level-5’s Inazuma Eleven or .hack from Namco Bandai.


We’ll always remember Gyrozetter for its wild transforming arcade cabinet and this elaborate April Fool’s joke.
