Capcom’s F2P JRPG Megami Meguri leaving the eShop in Japan on September 30

Capcom Japan has announced that their free-to-play RPG for the Nintendo 3DS, Megami Meguri, will be removed from the eShop on September 30th. As a game where you teach Japanese vocabulary to a chibi goddess it’s no surprise that this one was a Japan-exclusive release. The team’s Google-translated announcement reads:

Thank you for using “Megami Meguri”. Since the start of distribution, we have been supporting many customers and aiming for an operation that everyone can enjoy. We came to the conclusion that it is difficult to continue to provide similar services due to changes in the external environment. We have decided to terminate the service. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported us so far. The details of the end of service are as follows.

End of service
Wednesday, September 30, 2020 9:59
・ Distribution of download software “Megami Meguri” stopped
・ Sales of the in-game currency “Treasure Ball (paid)” and additional contents “Kamii (paid)” and “Travel Search (paid)” will be suspended.

Even after the service ends, you can still use the downloaded main story, purchased jewels and additional content you will not be able to use the check-in function or play seasonal events. It will be a short period until the end of the service, but we hope you enjoy “Megami Meguri”.

If you’ve got a Japanese Nintendo account there’s still time to download the game for free but if you miss the deadline you can always hunt down a physical copy of the collector’s edition that was released in 2016. If you’d just like to find out what the game even is though, check out this write-up from JRPGmoe.

I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site soon. Thanks to @LotsaNintendo for pointing out the news.
