Bandai Namco is killing its free-to-play fighting game Rise of Incarnates

Publisher Bandai Namco is ending service of another one of its free-to-play fighting games. This time it's Rise of Incarnates, the Windows PC brawler from the folks behind Tekken and Soulcalibur, which is shutting down this December.

On Steam, the publisher posted a termination notice for Rise of Incarnates today, saying that the game will go offline for good on Dec. 15. As part of the shutdown, Bandai Namco stopped selling Incarnate Points, an in-game currency that is purchased with real money, and made all characters free.

Rise of Incarnates is a two-versus-two fighting game similar in style to Bandai Namco's Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. series. It was released through Steam Early Access earlier this year and officially released in July.

Last month, Bandai Namco announced it was shutting down Soulcalibur Lost Swords, its free-to-play fighting game for PlayStation 3.
