So long

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.
