ABR Cancellation Prank (Apr. Fools 2017)

Postby Shiyonasan » 3 years ago

After nearly three years of development, Astro Boy Reboot has officially been cancelled.

In addition to the events leading to the cancellation described in the link below, there were also reports of differences of artistic opinion going on among the staff in Shibuya Productions, with the new storyline being the main point of division.

For full details on the cancellation, click the links below:

I was expecting a rickroll but BOY WAS I WRONG!!!

Quality voice acting, quality animation and effects, quality story... My goodness, no regrets on the cancellation because this gave all my standards an uppercut into the ceiling XDDDD

Such a shame. The story and animation so far seemed great!

Time to let the cat out of the bag. If you haven't figured it out already, this was all an April Fools joke.

Astro Boy Reboot is still in development and, for now, is slated to come out either in the Fall of 2017 or in 2018. This joke mainly came about because Astro Boy Reboot has taken a while to come out. I've discussed this with a few other ABO members and we all tend to joke about how Astro Boy Reboot will be perpetually in development or come out in some absurd year like 2076. Let's hope that's not the case! :lol:

Big thanks to EyeOdyssey for crafting this April Fools joke, as well as writing the fake news article.

Coralyly13, don't worry, ABR is not cancelled. The cancellation post was made as an April Fool's joke, no harm was intended. :)
