Final Fantasy Digital Card Game will end service in Japan on July 9, 2020, Square Enix announced.
Square Enix first announced the game in January 2019 and it went into full service via Yahoo! Japan Game+ in July 2019. The game will officially end its service on July 9, 2020 at 3:00pm JST.
Final Fantasy Digital Card Game is an online competitive card game for the Final Fantasy series, much like what Dragon Quest Versus is to the Dragon Quest series. Since it is a browser game, you can play it on PC and smartphones. It launched as a free-to-play game with micro-transaction services last July.
While the game will be available to play until its end-of-service date, its sales of micro-transaction currency “Gems” have already ended. However, players will get to use any remaining Gems until the game closes for good in a couple of months.
Square Enix didn’t go too much into detail about why it is shutting down, but the company stated that it is due to the difficulty of providing a satisfactory experience for the customers.
Final Fantasy Digital Card Game is available to play in Japan for PC, iOS, and Android. You can also visit the official website for a closer look at the digital card game.
