In 2012, Bandai Namco created a website called Shiftylook, aiming to revive old and forgotten franchises in the form of web projects – starting out with comics and then eventually games and webtoons. In early 2014, it was announced that the site and things related to it were going to be taken down due to Bandai Namco succeeding in their mission of making a character popular enough to be revived outside of the site – in this case, Wonder Momo.

Later that year, the site was taken down and, along with it, the webcomics, the visual novel Namco High and a mobile Bravoman game based on the comics. The site's YouTube channel was up until 2016, but eventually, that was also taken down, leading the webtoons to have the same fate as the rest of the site.

Despite the site's closure, three books – one based on Bravoman,[1] one based on Wonder Momo[2] and one based on Katamari[3] – are still available for purchase and contain the first dozen comics from their respective titles. Additionally, a reupload of Namco High is currently available here. The remaining material – which includes 3 webtoons, one mobile game, and many comics – is still to be found.
