Echoes of Mana, a mobile game spin-off from the famous JRPG franchise, will be phased out on May 15, following a year of Square Enix mobile game cancellations.
Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier, Deus Ex Go, Hitman Sniper: The Shadows, Space Invaders: Hidden Heroes, and Arena Battle Champions have all been shut down in recent years, while the Dragon Quest: The Adventures of Dai's end of service came just a few weeks ago.
The recent Square Enix financial report that showed declining sales suggests that the company's mobile initiatives are likely to have a negative impact.
When does Echoes of Mana's end-of-service date occur?
Echoes of Mana will be shut down on May 15, 2023. The game was released in April last year, so its end of service is expected to come in the following year. Check out the teaser below.
