Noise Factory closing at end of March

Posted Feb 28 2017 at 22:50 (Tue)

It's game over for Yabeno Hikomaro.

Noise Factory isn't a big-name developer, but they're certainly well-known for their cult hits on the Neo Geo like Rage of the Dragons and Power Instinct Matrimelee which spawned the Let's Go Onmyouji Internet meme.

That was back over a decade ago. While the developer seemed to be around and working on other publisher's projects, today they made the sudden announcement to close office at the end of March.

While very little was heard about Noise Factory in recent years, up until last year they were still recruiting for new employees and even had a small booth at winter Comiket in December.

Noise Factory's online shop will still keep some of the company's legacy going; Plans are in place to bring it back in another form.
