Nintendo Chooses to NOT Renew Custom Robo Trademark: IP is potentially DEAD However, this isn't the last Robot shooter game we're getting from CR's Creator.
Folks, Custom Robo is now effectively DEAD (or possibly in Gaming Limbo, IDK). The trademark was not renewed, despite being cancelled for over 2 and a HALF YEARS!! On the plus side (I guess), we’re getting a 3d Robot shooter called Synaptic Drive from Kouji Kenjou, the creator of the now-dead Custom Robo series. As people are already speculating about whether the franchise will go 3rd-party, go to a company that’ll treat it with dignity and respect or just fade into obscurity, we here at Joycon Gamers will keep you updated on any developments regarding the fate of Custom Robo.
