Love Live School Idol Festival 2 Gets End of Service Notice Before Launch

    A bizarre turn of events.

    Bushiroad and KLab Games confirmed the global version of Love Live School Idol Festival 2 MIRACLE LIVE! will launch in February 2024 for Android and iOS, and end service just four months later on May 31. This global version was previously slated for 2023, but the game’s end of service notice for March 31 in Japan means it will have a very short lifespan. 

    Bushiroad released Love Live School Idol Festival 2 MIRACLE LIVE! on April 15, 2023. Although it released as the successor to the highly successful Love Live School Idol Festival, Bushiroad determined that it can no longer offer satisfactory service for the game. This presents quite the conundrum for the global release, since the end of service was determined before Bushiroad International could even release the game. 

    Love Live School Idol Festival 2 Reaches End of Service in Record Time

    The official Japanese website for Love Live School Idol Festival 2 MIRACLE LIVE! confirms the game will end service on March 31. A offline version will be made available, allowing existing players to review content earned from their time in the mobile game. The global version will release in February 2024, but the imminent shutdown means it will reach end of service soon as well. Players around the world will only be able to play the game until May 31, and in-app purchases will cease. 

    The original Love Live School Idol Festival title was shut down on March 31, 2023. At the time, Bushiroad allowed players in Japan had the opportunity to connect their account to the new title. Moreover, content from the original game was viewable in the new Album feature present in Love Live School Idol Festival 2 MIRACLE LIVE!.

    Story of the TV Anime – Love Live!

    The traditional school Otonokizaka High is situated between the three towns of Akihabara, Kanda, and Jimbocho. This school is also in imminent danger of closing. Because of this crisis, the second year student Honoka Kosaka takes center stage with eight others to do something about it!

    “To protect the school we love so much, we have to do all we can… We have to become school idols! By becoming idols and advertising how great our school is to the world, more students will want to apply!”

    Now their “School Idol Project” begins to make their dreams come true!
