A port of the Bandai Namco game, Tales of Phantasia, was released on iOS mobile devices earlier this year. Now it looks like Namco has decided to shut down the RPG already.
It was announced that distribution would cease on August 28. The app will be rendered useless at that point since an online connection is required to play the game.
◆Notice of Termination of Distribution◆
We regret to inform you that we will cease distribution of this app on 08/28/2014 (Thursday). On this date, the app and all associated services will become unusable. This includes In-App Purchase items already purchased and save data. Furthermore, sale of In-App Purchase items will conclude on 07/29/2014 (Tuesday). We apologize sincerely to all of our customers for this inconvenience, and hope you continue to enjoy our products and services in the future.
No clear cut reason as to why the game is being removed was given. It looks like fans will have to busty out their old GBA to get their Tales of Phantasia fix.by
