Adding to the recent series of games shutting down, Square Enix has announced that the free-to-play mobile JRPG Echoes of Mana will end service on May 15. The game launched on April 27, 2022 for iOS and Android, making its run time to be just over a year. “We’ve come to the conclusion that it would be difficult to continue maintaining the app experience, and to therefore end the app service.”
The full details via Square Enix can be seen below:
