Mr. DRILLER Online was last confirmed to be available on the Xbox 360 in North America on April 8th, 2018. The game may have been delisted closer to March of 2019 when several other Namco titles including Mr. Driller on PlayStation 3 and Mr. Driller: Drill Till You Drop on Nintendo DS and 3DS were likely delisted.
However, as the game remains available on Xbox 360 in all other regions where it was released, it would seem to indicate that a technical or ratings-related issue arose specific to the North American version of the game. Bandai NAMCO appears to have chosen not to resolve the issue and instead delisted the title in that region alone.
About the Game
Although the game is included in the 2008 retail release of Namco Museum Virtual Arcade the disc does not contain Mr. DRILLER Online. Rather, it unlocks the downloadable Xbox Live Arcade version which may or may not be accessible as of 2020.
