Report – Game Republic quietly shutting down
Game Republic, the independent studio behind Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom and Genji: Days of the Blade, appears to be closing doors amid financial woes.
Most Japanese game companies would issue a press release on closing down, even in dire financial straits. There are said to be rumours design lead Yoshiki Okamoto has left Japan ahead of massive debts.
Game Republic acquired an unfair reputation after Sony’s disastrous presentation at E3 2006, in which a Sony rep nonchalantly kicked off the giant enemy crab meme while demonstrating Genji: Days of the Blade.
The developer’s other well-known titles include early PlayStation 3 titles Folklore and Dark Mist.
