Terra Battle Ending Service in June
Mistwalker has announced that its free-to-play mobile RPG Terra Battle will shut down service on June 30, 2020. Sales of in-game Energy have been suspended, but any remaining Energy can be used until June 30, 2020.
Terra Battle was originally released in 2014. A sequel, Terra Battle 2, launched in 2017 but was shut down in 2018. Producer Hironobu Sakaguchi provided the following statement:
It is with deep regret that I inform you, service for Terra Battle will be terminated.
Terra Battle’s test version was released in Canada back in September of 2014, and the game went on to officially release in the United States, Canada, England, France, Germany and Spain in October of the same year. Finally, the game was available in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao in April of 2015.
I am so grateful for all the fans who played Terra Battle for nearly six years.
It feels as though our conception of the “Pincer Shogi” mechanic happened in the distant, nostalgic past.
This game was also our first smartphone service-type RPG. I personally learned a lot from this experience, and am constantly reminded that “there are no paths that aren’t worth taking.”
I am very thankful to have had such an experience.
Currently, Mistwalker is hard at work developing our next title on the Apple Arcade called Fantasian. This game goes back to my roots in the Famicom (NES) era, and I plan to bring this to life using dioramas. Development for the game is currently moving at full speed and I hope to see you all in the next “world.”
Thank you for your continued support.
