The start of the new year is always a key time for delistings. Contracts and licenses end, and games must be pulled from digital stores as a result. Publisher Little Orbit announced on Steam
that their 2015 movie tie-in game, Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends
, falls into this category due to an expiring license with DreamWorks and will be removed from marketplaces on January 1st, 2019.
On Xbox, Showdown of Legendary Legends
has a last-gen and current-gen version, each with their own set of achievements. The Steam announcement did not expressly say the Xbox versions will also be removed, but they are expected to be, especially since a current Xbox sale
mirrors the last-chance sale the Steam version received.
The Xbox One version is 50% off
until the delisting date, but as of this writing, there are no sales for the Xbox 360 version
. Both editions have downloadable content that adds new characters, but there are no achievements tied to any DLC.
Lastly, both versions are also available physically, so the removal of Showdown of Legendary Legends
from digital stores is not the last chance to own the games. However, due to the limited nature of physical copies, the price of delisted games often goes up or games become scarce post-delisting, so picking up the digital edition while it is still available may be preferred for some players.
