Last Rebellion developer files for bankruptcy

April 1998-established Hit Maker on the fall.

Last Rebellion

Hit Maker, the company behind NIS America’s horribly-received 2010 PlayStation 3 RPG Last Rebellion, has filed for bankruptcy in Tokyo District Court.

Outside of Last Rebellion, the April 1998-established developer’s other works include Capcom’s Dino Crisis 3 (Xbox), Sony’s Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light (PSP), Nippon Ichi Software’s Dragoneer’s Aria (PSP) and A Witch’s Tale (DS), and Irem’s Steambot Chronicles: Battle Tournament (PSP).

Last Rebellion, however, was the worst received among the studio’s handful of releases, most of which received mixed or negative reception. NIS America’s then-president Haru Akenaga even apologized for releasing the game.
