You can substitute or even take out "Japanese" from your sentence and it would still be true. Being jaded about a medium is fun :D

It seems the game was almost finished. I wonder why they would
shit can after the money was spent on it.  Could it have anything to
do with the disaster tightening up finances?

It looked pretty mediocre anyway.

It seemed unappealing from the get-go. The trailer did not engage me in the slightest. It looked like a bad version of The Club, and that game wasn't particularly popular itself. I imagine Gun Loco would have been virtually dead online after about the first week or so, so I'm not complaining or disappointed to hear it's no longer happening.

Well, not a big loss there, I actually face palmed when I heard of this game for the first time

Too right you are. Versus XIII was announced 5 years ago. Anyone else ready for another long development flop? Can't say that I am, but it's at the point where anything they bring out is a surprise if it isn't awful.

@Hailinel: 
Good point, guess that with all the zany stuff surrounding the FF online game I completely forgot about it. Still if the fans of square only want to see more FF & KH then they should start a smaller side studio to handle all the original IPs & let that studio learn lessons like this when the IP might not be that great in it's current form. Great thing about the game industry is that the cancelled games can always come back with the right people running the team/studio.

So, do I just give you the money now, or do I have to wait for the official announcement?

I was kinda looking forward to trying this.

@Hailinel:  You pretty much summed up everything I was gonna say. It's just been setback after setback for Square and financial risk in new product is gonna come at a premium. As much as I love seeing all the PS1 classics coming out on the PSN store it won't even come close to denting the losses they've had in the past year.

Thank goodness, this game didn't look to good in the trailer.

Posted by KickahaOta

Sigh. My dreams of being a poorly-dressed rabbit furry in a somewhat mediocre-looking third-person shooter must remain unfulfilled.

You know guys, even the worst games have a lot of hard work put in to them by many developers, sure this game may not have been that great (Never will know for sure now) but you guys don't seem to understand the time/money/effort that goes into making any games.  This is a lot of hard work down the drain for many people who must be very disappointed.

Posted by JoyfullOFrockets

For once developers understood a game is genuinely going to be crap and decided to scrap it.

Posted by hustlerlt

This is only for the better,because all I've seen of this game was terrible.

Really don't understand Square sometimes as it seems that every time they try to get away from FF/KH to some new IP they tend to turn tail or not fund it as well. Maybe someone from the team will be able to take this somewhere else to get worked on as the game itself looked interesting enough to dive a bit further into it.

As long as Square Enix doesn't announce the specific whys regarding the game's cancellation, there's all sorts of speculation that could be made, but there's nothing that points to this being a poor business decision.
 
Frankly, the company got hammered last year with the failure of Final Fantasy XIV.  The game is still in the free trial phase while they try to fix everything that's bad about it.  The game is a financial albatross at this point; they either get it working, get players to subscribe and get at least some money from it, or they let it go and lose all of the money that they invested in the project.  The company has also temporarily shut down the FFXI and FFXIV servers to conserve energy at the Japanese government's request, and they will not be billing any players for subscription time as long as the servers are down.  Meaning that currently, Final Fantasy XI is not earning the company any income, and Final Fantasy XIV's recovery has been further set back.
 
Given this financial state of affairs, it's likely that Square Enix took a hard look at their projects in development and chose to axe Gun Loco because, as weird and "un-Square" as it is, it's also an untested, unproven game and not as likely to succeed in the market as games like Final Fantasy Versus XIII or XIII-2, Kingdom Hearts 3DS, or any entries from other existing franchises.  Which sucks, because I'd love to see some new IP from the company as well, but they also likely saw some very legitimate business reasons to cancel Gun Loco.

Yeah, that game looked pretty fuckin' bad. No surprise there.

Posted by CharAznable

Ugh, glad this was canned. That video footage was released THIS YEAR and not in 1999?

Posted by KyleBaron

Someone cancelled the sequel to The Club before it had a chance to stay out of the bargain bin.

I wasn't expecting this to do well or be very good

The thing to do here is for Square to sell the IP to someone else, preferably a Western developer such as People Can Fly. It'd be a real shame to squander such a cool idea and design aesthetic.

American McGee and Kenny Wong would probably get along great.
