Final Fantasy Record Keeper global version shuts down on September 29

    Square Enix announced the global version of mobile RPG Final Fantasy Record Keeper is ending service on September 29. The game will shut down with the exception of the Japanese version. In-game purchases for gems will be disabled starting August 30.

    Producer Ichiro Hazama and development producer Yu Sasaki shared two messages regarding the global shutdown of Final Fantasy Record Keeper. Here’s what both developers had to say, via Siliconera:

    Ichiro Hazama

    Hello! This is Ichiro Hazama from SQEX.

    Well, everyone. Have you played FFRK to your heart’s content?

    For me, this project has been a treasure trove brimming with the limitless wonders of the FF series.

    Of course, it could never convey all of the charm found in the FF games.

    But I’d like to think we were able to bring you glimpses of its iconic pixel graphics, music, incredible battle systems, and so much more.

    Seven years ago when it all started, you could count the number of characters in the game, and the strategic elements were still relatively simple.

    But thanks to the many people at DeNA, and of course all of you, the players, we were able to create the game you know today.

    Words cannot express the gratitude I feel, but nevertheless, allow me to sincerely thank you all for everything over these many years!

    Someday, I hope our paths will cross again.

    Until then!

    Yu Sasaki

    I would like to sincerely thank all of our FFRK players, past and present. Without each of you who played the game, we would never have been able to keep it going for over seven years.

    Pixel art is a personal favorite of mine, so it’s been my pleasure during the past seven years to be able to bring you pixel art versions of so many moments from past Final Fantasy games, as well as the adventures of Tyro and his friends.

    As the Final Fantasy series celebrates its 35th year, I have no doubt it will continue to bring us the amazing stories it’s known for. I hope you’ll continue to enjoy these stories for years to come. Thank you so much for being a part of it!

    Square Enix is currently developing a new mobile game in the Kingdom Hearts series titled Kingdom Hearts: Missing-Link. A closed beta for iOS and Android goes live this fall in select regions.
