When this project was finally launched frustrated fans. There were also performance issues and it was eventually revealed Zero progress has been made on portable ports.

It is worth noting the current controversy over the legality of the project and whether Inafune was actually involved, as it is assumed that its copyrights and signatures do not appear on the site. VGC Editor Andy Robinson, who covered the original story, responded to this Via social media:
“From my understanding, this project isn’t supposed to be advertised – someone found it early on via Google – so it’s no surprise that Inafune isn’t talking about it. It’s also incredibly common for marketers to source bots from elsewhere.”
“This appears to be a trusted marketplace, and that page has the Inafune name and kind of original artwork all over the place. Could they have decided to build it all up for a scam? Sure, but why? Either way, I don’t think the lack of copyright and signature Absolutely disgrace her.”
