Japanese studio Delta Arts has closed, it has been announced.
The company has been responsible for the major instalments in the Medabots series since 2010, and also created Tenkai Knights: Brave Battle on 3DS.
The last Medabots release it worked on was Medabots 9, which launched in Japan last year. The most recent entry - the spin-off Medabots: Girls Mission - was produced by Rocket Co., Ltd and not Delta Arts.
The original Medabots - known as Medarot in Japan - was developed for the Game Boy by Natsume and published by Imagineer back in 1997. Since then it has remained a Nintendo-focused franchise, with sequels arriving on the Game Boy Advance, GameCube and Nintendo DS.
