‘Dragon Quest Champions’ Shutting Down on iOS and Android in Japan This July, Released a Year Ago

Last June, Square Enix released its previously announced mobile RPG Dragon Quest Champions for iOS and Android in Japan. Dragon Quest Champions was made in collaboration with Koei Tecmo, and it was the first big Dragon Quest mobile release since Dragon Quest Builders hit the platform. Today, Square Enix announced (via Gematsu) that Dragon Quest Champions will be shutting down at the end of July in Japan. A website with some player data will be released. Watch the trailer for Dragon Quest Champions below:

As of today, in app purchase sales have ended for Dragon Quest Champions on iOS and Android. This one never released outside Japan, and I was hoping to see it in the West. This is yet another Square Enix mobile game to shut down about a year or so after launching. Check out the official website for more gameplay screenshots and information if you don’t plan on playing it and want to know how it was. Dragon Quest Champions is a free to play with various gem packs that are now no longer available. If you’d like to try out the Japanese release until it shuts down, you can get it on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here. Did you play Dragon Quest Champions in Japan or were you hoping for a localization?
