Dragalia Lost will be discontinued later this year, Nintendo has announced. Co-developed by Cygames, the minds behind hit gacha Granblue fantasythe action role-playing game was notable for being a brand new exclusive IP for Nintendo for mobile.
Since its launch in 2018, Dragalia Lost has received a healthy dose of updates and nurtured a dedicated fanbase, so this might come as a surprise to players.
Here’s what Nintendo has to say about the closure, straight from the game’s official page:
Thank you for playing Dragalia Lost.
This message is intended to inform players about the future of the game.
Dragalia Lost’s main campaign is scheduled to conclude in July 2022 with part two of Chapter 26, the final and culminating addition to its long history. After completing the main campaign, service for the game itself will be discontinued at a later date. More details on the end of service schedule will be provided in a future notification.
After adding the last batch of new adventurers in a summoning showcase scheduled for 03/31/2022 at 07:00, the game will not receive any new content updates except those for the main campaign and certain quests. Please note that summoning showcases for existing adventurers and dragons, as well as event revives, will continue to be available until the service ends.
The Dragalia Lost team would like to thank each and every one of our players, past or present, for their love and support for Dragalia Lost since its release. We sincerely hope that you have enjoyed your experience of the game from the moment you played it and we will endeavor to ensure that you do so for as long as time allows.
There’s good news, though: the story at least completes – which is often a problem with endings in mobile games. Part two of Chapter 26 will drop in July, and services will shut down sometime thereafter. So keen fans will at least have time to experience this and get all they can from it.
At the end of this month, you can also roll for new heroes, as the last few new characters will appear as part of a summoning showcase. The team behind Dragalia Lost definitely want to reward dedicated fans and give the game the goodbye it deserves.
There’s a reason the game also has such a healthy following – in our 2018 review we said it was “a remarkably well-executed ARPG for mobile”.
