Free-to-Play Wii U title, Lost Reavers, shutting down May 30th

Bandai Namco announced via Twitter back on February 27th, 2019 that Lost Reavers, their free-to-play multiplayer title for Nintendo Wii U, would be shut down on May 30th. The game’s page at Nintendo.com offers a slightly longer explanation and timeline, and follows below:

Thank you for playing Lost Reavers! We regrettably inform all users that the service is scheduled to end on May 30th, 2019. We offer our sincere thanks to everyone who has supported this game. The termination schedule is as follows:

March 28th 2019 – Cease sales of paid items.
*Items already purchased can be used until the termination of service date.

May 30th 2019 – Termination of service.
*The game will be unavailable for play after the service termination date.

We thank you for your support and hope you will continue to enjoy Lost Reavers until the end of service!

While the date for spending real-world money on in-game items passed on March 28th, there’s still time for fans and players intrigued by the title to get in on the action. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up soon.
