Delisting

Publisher UserJoy Japan made separate announcements on March 3rd, 2022 outlining plans to shut down the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation releases of The Legend of Heroes: Akatsuki no Kiseki. Switch players had the opportunity to migrate their data to the mobile versions of the game (and consequently up to the current PC version) but PlayStation owners were provided no similar options. UserJoy instead promised to provide some in-game currency and bonus items to PlayStation owners who linked new PC accounts.

The Android, iOS, and PC versions of the game were said to remain online for the foreseeable future. The team’s announcement follows by way of Google Translate:
