KRAFTON's 2019 roguelike dungeon crawler Mistover is being removed from sale, the developer has announced.
This news has come from both the developer of the game and renowned fighting game developer Arc System Works, who has published the game in some territories. Arc System Works revealed in a press release that revealed the company's licensing agreement with KRAFTON expires on Thursday 30th June 2022. This means it will be discontinued from sale after that date. You can read the full statement over on Arc System Works' official website.
The game is available not only on Switch, but also on PS4, Steam, GOG, and Xbox systems, and while Arc System only mentions the Switch and Sony's console, KRAFTON released its own statement. Published on Mistover's website, it confirms that the "service will be closing" on the same date on all consoles.
Hello, this is Aimo speaking.
To everyone who has shown their love and support for Mistover, we regretfully inform you with a heavy heart that the service will be closing as our journey comes to an end.
We first launched Mistover on October 10th, 2019, and we made the difficult decision to close the service for this much-loved game effective June 30th, 2022.
We are deeply grateful to everyone who has used our services and would like to ask for your generous understanding.
Service Termination Notice
1. Service Termination Date: June 30th, 2022 (KST)
2. Platforms where the game will no longer be available:
- Nintendo Switch
※ Even after the game no longer becomes available, customers who have already purchased the game will be able to download it.
Once again, we extend our deep gratitude to all the fans of Mistover for their love and support.
We've seen developers come back from setbacks like this before, often publishing the game themselves. What KRAFTON decides to do going forward, we don't know yet, but for now, this seems like the end of the road for Mistover.
If you already own the game, you don't need to worry as you won't lose your purchase. But if you're thinking about picking it up, now might be the time to do so as there's only a month left until it's delisted from storefronts.
