While uncommon in South Korea even if the market is competitive, Legend of Fighters’ closure was announced recently, just a few months after launching its commercial service earlier this year. Legend of Fighters will shut its doors on 18th June.
Developer GalaxyGate, which also made games such as Rosh Online, claimed that “current conditions” made it difficult for the game to continue operating. The Japan server, Chrono Crusade, just entered commercial service on 25th April.
Said to have been in development for 4 years, I do see some potential in Legend of Fighters. But then again, similar genre games have somewhat failed in the English market, including Dungeon Fighter Online and the barely-alive Rusty Hearts.
