DanMachi: Memoria Freese will be shut down outside Japan on February 28

Wright Flyer Studios announced that they will shut down all international releases of DanMachi (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Familia Myth): Memoria Freese on February 28, 2024. The regions affected include the US, Europe, Taiwan, and South Korea. The English version launched in late March 2018, so it will have one month shy of six years in total lifespan. Only the Japanese version will remain active after the date.

In usual cases, shutdowns of free-to-play games outside Japan simply mean they would cease to exist entirely. International versions do not even get to get permanent offline archives that recent outgoing Japanese F2P games had been getting. However, the global version closure of Memoria Freese will come with an uncommon perk: The developers will offer refunds to players who still have Paid Iris if they have made a purchase before this announcement and it’s still unused by the time the game has shut down.

In Japan, all outgoing F2P games are mandated by law to offer refunds to paying players domestically upon closure. While this law is not enforced as much on customers outside Japan, this case of Memoria Freese’s global closure will be worth noting, especially to players who fit the bill provided the developers do not go back on their words.

You can also read the official message from the developers right below, just in case the above link expires after the game’s shutdown. The free-to-play mobile game DanMachi: Memoria Freese is still available with active updates in Japan for the foreseeable future as of this writing.
