Sudden Attack is still going strong for Nexon, especially in Korea, but the sequel stumbled out of the gate and is already on its deathbed. It launched in Korea on July 6 and will be fully shut down on Sept. 29.

As reported by Steparu, Developer GameHi terminated its contract with Nexon, which is problematic enough. On top of that, the two lead female characters were apparently “appropriated” by various elements of the fan base for, shall we say, less than family-friendly portraits — which I’m sure came as a complete shock to the developers when you look at how one of them is shown off in the launch trailer, above. As a result, the characters were outright deleted from the game.

Sudden Attack 2 looked like it had some decent ideas and solid production values, and might have been a worthwhile port to Western countries, but it doesn’t look like it will get that far. What are your feelings on the game shutting down so, well, suddenly?

      Nothing bad with oversexualizing, but it doesn’t make sense to go into a swordfight or a gunfight wearing bikini.

    South Korea’s government has been playing games for youths in situations in which the ban and criminalize the R18, prostitution and recommend sexy idol rather than the game.

    South Korea also is Hell Korea
    International law is good and in accordance with, the laws are made not for the people in South Korea South Korea.
    Most of which will transform the laws of developed countries

    They were probably pressured by the media or the government to drop those characters. Porn is banned in South Korea.

    I just got into nexon games because they had some games I actually liked how come I didn’t know they had this game wtf? Also it’s sad they are shutting down this game it actually looks good but I agree with shanex if they removed the sexy characters I wouldn’t be suprised if this game was on it’s deathbed.
