Chain Chronicle Global shutting down February 29th

chain-chronicle.jpgIf you play Chain Chronicle outside of Japan, I got some bad news for you, it will be closed down next month, and the app has already been removed from the appstores. Before you go blaming SEGA, Chain Chronicle Global is actually published by Gumi and not SEGA.

This is the game closure notice they gave fans:

Dear Captains,

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that Chain Chronicle Global is closing on February 29th, 2016.

It was a very hard choice to make, but despite the overwhelming support of our loyal fan base, it was the way it had to go. We appreciate your participation in what ended up being a very positive experience for us all, and we would like you all to know that it was thanks to you that Chain Chronicle Global made it as far as it did.

The app is to be removed from the stores, though you will still be able to play the game for a period of time afterwards. Sales of Prysma, however, will end on January 18th, 2016.

While Gumi dropped support, the franchise is far from dead. SEGA is planning to release a anime series based in the game’s universe this year and the game still gets updated in Japan. Maybe now that Gumi has dropped the title, SEGA Networks can relaunch it with all the same content the Japanese version has (the Gumi version was behind).

    I play Chain Chronicle since its release. Gumi prices were very high, best cards’ rate extremely low. Gumi created some features (gauntlet and Colosseum) in order to transform a game against the CPU in a PvP, but every addition came with many, many bugs. They changed some events, creating a big mess. Some bugs are still there. I hope this game continues its life…

    I can see why the hard-core gamers are so against a digital-only future, as this is what happens, games potentially deleted and gone for ever. To the hard-core crowd, collecting physical copies of videogames like cartridges, consoles and disks is understanding the intrinsic value of them just like the music aficionados understand the value of their vinyl collection and retain the high value trade-able of them, with digital only media, all that is gone, and only caters to corporate interests vying for crappy casual standards promoted by casual gamers who don’t care so much about that stuff and therefore don’t have any appreciation for it.

    There’s a petition someone put together to try to save the game. I don’t know if it will do any good, but it doesn’t hurt to try.

    What a relief, i hope SEGA will really re-launch the game. I can’t let the game just go and died like that, because it’s fun and i love it! ><

    Lel. SEGA doesn’t have plans to relaunch. They just CAN.
