Despite .hack developers CyberConnect2 having plans to release the smartphone game Guilty Dragon: Tsumiryū to Yattsu no Noroi (The Sin Dragon and the Eight Curses) in the US and Europe, it’s due to end its service on March 23rd, as announced by Bandai Namco. The game first launched in October 2012, so on the day it closes, it will have been active for around three years and five months.
The RPG rooted in the .hack franchise takes place in a wide and social world, where players can meet, trade and adventure in uncovering the mysteries of the Tsumiryū (Sin Dragon). You’re free to play until the bitter end looms, but in-game coin sales will stop on February 22nd. Still, it’s by no means a last chance saloon for the mobile .hack game universe, as it inspired the title New World which launched on January 8th, and where you can meet the franchise’s cheery hero Kite.
