Namco Bandai announced today that it will end it’s service for Misato Katsuragi’s Reporting Project on June 5 in Japan.
“Misato Katsuragi’s Reporting Project” is a paid PlayStation 3 service that has an animated version of the Evangelion’s Misato Katsuragi character that reads news to viewers using a synthesized voice.
Users of the service are required to purchase an Â¥800 “news license” to be able to access the service for 30 days. Those licenses will stop being sold on May 6 at noon. The service will stop one month later on June 5, just before midnight. All news feeds will end, so news broadcasts will no longer be viewable.
In an announcement at the product’s official site, Namco Bandai said that the service is coming to an end as originally planned.
