The SEGA mobile closures continue, as the infamous Puyo Puyo!! Quest reskin Cranky Food Friends is closing on March 31st. Both Cranky Food Friends and Puzzle & Glory were announced at the same time, but unlike Puzzle & Glory, Cranky Food Friends experienced a much harsher time. Not even getting past the soft release phase and having reports of being very buggy to the point of being game breaking, Cranky Food Friends being closed down was not a surprise. This is especially good in the case of Puyo Puyo fans out there still bitter about the game.
I can now officially confirm to you that on March 31, 2016, Cranky Food Friends will be shut down.
This decision was not made lightly; the Cranky Food Friends team put hard work and long hours into this game, but in the end, it did not gain a robust enough following to make the game viable over the long term.

Thank you so much for playing
Unlike Puzzle & Glory, there is no period to spend your remaining materials due to closing much more abruptly. This game and the closure of Puzzle & Glory in April is somewhat disappointing in the case of SEGA’s mobile division in the west, but the lessons learned from the failures of these games should hopefully create better handled mobile games in the future. Meanwhile, SEGA’s mobile division in Japan is still going strong with games like Puyo Puyo!! Quest and Chain Chronicles pulling in a lot of support and money. Cranky Food Friends may of left a bitter taste, but at least there’s still a silver lining.
