404 Game Re:Set ran into a real-life 404 error, as Sega announced it is under maintenance to fix a major bug. Producer Gosuke Nakamura apologized for the inconvenience on the official website for the game. The maintenance should last until 5am JST of May 6, 2023. That would be 1pm PT/4pm ET on May 5, 2023.

The bug is affecting the Technical Department Dungeon Drop-up Campaign. Players are receiving an unexpected amount of Segacreds and materials, so Sega shut down the game to undergo emergency maintenance. Though the team has already discovered the root of the bug and fixed it, players have used the surge of Segacreds and materials to enhance their accessories. As a result, it has disrupted the balance and fairness of the game.

In order to fix the issue of game balance, Sega decided that it will roll back the game’s data, using a back-up from 2am JST of May 5, 2023. This means that we will lose any of the progress they made after that date. Sega states that this is to return the game to a state where everyone can enjoy it. It will issue reimbursements for affected players at a later date.

404 Game Re:Set is a mobile game takes place in a dystopian future where Sega rules the world with an iron fist. Yoko Taro of NieR and Drakengard fame is the creative director for the story. It features retro games like Pong and Virtua Fighter as playable characters, with Virtua Fighter being the focus of the game’s first story event.

404 Game Re:Set is available in Japan on mobile devices.
