As long as the anime keeps getting subbed then everything is fine.

Really unfortunately to hear. I remember downloading and playing the game on my family's iPad on the drive over to my grandparent's house one weekend during September 2016. It was pretty fun and I was planning on eventually downloading it on my iPhone, but I kept putting it off, and off, and off. Now I seriously need to play it again before the servers shut down.

Really bummed out about this. I just hit over 500 days logging in, poured a ton of time and effort (and a bit of cash) into this game. It's deeper than pretty much every phone game I've ever seen, with interesting skill based mechanics, and online co-op play. Gonna be really sad to lose my account and the stable of monsters I've built up over the years. Never did get to full clear all the colossals.

I could hop over to the JP version, but it would take just too much to get back anywhere close to where I was on the english version. Guess I'll install Fire Emblem Heroes instead...

Bummer. This looked like the sort of mobile game that could've caught on in the west too. But the mobile market is a crapshoot: There's so much stuff coming out all the time that youneed either name brand recognition or to get quite lucky to be noticed at all.
