Game company Examu, best known for the Arcana Heart 2D fighting games, has announced that it is ceasing all operations starting later this month, due to gradually declining business conditions. Development and management, however, are switching over to the company-owned Team Arcana, so hopefully, the series will stay in good hands. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Damn, it’s rough for fighting games. There are more series now than ever but it isn’t good enough to be fun and clever, people want to be playing the popular game that gets attention on streams and is part of conversations. Still, a lot of series do well targeting their fan base, maybe their base was smaller than their budget/profit scheme.
