Earthquake racer 'MotorStorm: Apocalypse' canceled in Japan
Thursday 09 June 2011
PlayStation 3 racer
MotorStorm: Apocalypse won't be making it to shop shelves in Japan, joining a number of other notable cancellations and delays following the Japanese earthquake in March.
In MotorStorm: Apocalypse, players tear through an abandoned North American city, ravaged by natural disaster and changing lap by lap as tectonic movements rip up the landscape.
The game was released mid-March in Europe, but a two-week delay on its UK debut clashed with Need for Speed: Shift 2.
The North American version was also postponed from April to early May, by which time the PlayStation 3's multiplayer network was in turmoil following an April 17 hack.
Disaster Report 4, part of a series about surviving earthquakes, was canceled almost immediately, while Yakuza: Of The End was delayed until June 9.
