Konami Cancels Coded Arms: Assault
When a game disappears for a long enough stretch, one has to eventually conclude that it just ain't coming. Such is the case for the now-defunct PS3 title, Coded Arms: Assault.
It was supposed to be the sequel to 2005's Coded Arms for the PSP, and it was first unveiled at E3 2006. Those in attendance found that Assault would bring us all kinds of cool weapons, fully destructible environments, and a must for any Internet multiplayer gamer these days, 16-player online matches. The game popped up again that year at the Tokyo Game Show, and it was actually playable. Players could step up and blast through a city level, and while it was still an early build of the game, it certainly showed promise. But after that, we never heard another peep from Konami about their sequel, and 2007 came and went without so much as an update. Now, according to PSU, a Konami representative has confirmed that Coded Arms: Assault is no longer in development.
"There are no current plans to bring Coded Arms: Assault to the PS3 at this time."
We suppose they could bring it to another platform, but there's just no Coded Arms news anywhere. So sorry PS3 gamers, but this one won't be headed to stores; you'll have to make do with other available titles. ...we can handle that, right?
