In Acclaim’s official 9Dragons Message Board, the VGMs and Moderators got a hard time with the question of the players: “What will happen with 9Dragons?” And, like always, they can’t stop to be a smart-ass and only answer “9Dragons will not close down”
Maybe 9Dragons will not. But Acclaim will!
The member xxc001 gave a good hint in the 9Dragons forum and posted this link:
This website is ingerman, but I can explain you what it tells:
Apart from some informations about the game itself, it tells that the publisher OnNet Online will take over 9Dragons for Germany from fall 2010 on.
We have checked OnNet Online, and we found out that they want to offer their products in german, french and spanish. So this makes it hard to guess if they will just publish 9Dragons for Germany only, or for more european countries, or even the whole Europe. But fact is, 9Dragons is beeing handed over to other publishers, away from Acclaim.
The OnNet Online websites are the following:
And the “already-online” 9Dragons website: 9dragons.gamescampus.eu
This, Ladies and Gentlemen, is a win for me and the Project AI Blog. Not yet official about the contract with Acclaim, but soon, yes, sooner than Acclaim’s “soon”, I will post it here, and then I can officially say that we were all the time right.
At this point I would like to use a line which was posted in the previous article by Cerberum:
Hell, it’s about Time!

Dear Acclaim Staff…
We know already that you don’t do your job very good and not professional at all… But aren’t you ashamed that we, your most hated blog and your biggest enemy (how you like to call us) brings such informations earlier than you?
