Andriasang – the English-language Japanese game news site that is often the first to translate Japan's Famitsu games industry magazine into English – will no longer be updating, its editor and writer Anoop Gantayat announced today on the site.

Andriasang – the English-language Japanese game news site that is often the first to translate Japan's Famitsu industry magazine into English – will no longer be updating, its editor and writer Anoop Gantayat announced today on the site.

Gantayat said that he has taken on a new opportunity that will keep him busy, so he has decided to stop updating the site. Gantayat thanked readers for supporting the site throughout the years and said that its archives would remain.

"I may do some database-driven stuff and technology tests (look closely, and you may see the site's backend code base change from PHP to node.js!), but I won't be doing articles or updates," he wrote. "The site's archive and comments will remain in place, so you can still consult old content."

Andriasang was launched in 2008 by Gantayat, who was IGN's former Japanese correspondent. The site covered stories in both English and Japanese.
