Final Fantasy Record Keeper shut down announcement

Developed by Square Enix and published by DeNA, Final Fantasy Record Keeper is a free-to-play gacha role-playing game. The game was initially released in Japan on September 24, 2014, before its global release in 2015. The game presents original characters and stories interacting with characters, scenarios, and battles from other Final Fantasy series games.

The tweet from the game’s official account hinted at the closing of the game by referring to an in-game announcement regarding the service of Final Fantasy Record Keeper. The in-game notice provided details about the decision to discontinue the Final Fantasy Record Keeper game service on September 29, 5:00 PM PST. Also, the purchase of gems in the game will be suspended by August 30, 2022. Ichiro Hazama, the producer of Final Fantasy Record Keeper regarding the end of the game’s service gave a heartfelt message to the game’s fans.

“For me, this project has been a treasure trove brimming with the limitless wonders of the FF series. Of course, it could never convey all of the charm found in the FF games. But I’d like to think we were able to bring you glimpses of its iconic pixel graphics, music, incredible battle systems, and so much more.”

“Seven years ago when it all started, you could count the number of characters in the game, and the strategic elements were still relatively simple. But thanks to the many people at DeNA, and of course all of you, the players, we were able to create the game you know today. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel, but allow me to sincerely thank you all for everything over these many years! Someday, I hope our paths will cross again.”
