The players did not shine on the court, as Disney Star Smash has announced its end of service after roughly a year since its launch. Disney and XFLAG’s game did not garner as much love as fellow Disney property, Twisted Wonderland, did, as it would appear. Disney Star Smash will officially end service on 7 December 2021, 15:00 JST, as stated by the notice here.
As usual, any players who may have bought premium currency may opt in for refunds, with further sales halted. The game featured an array of Disney characters with gameplay reminiscent of tennis as you smack the ball back and forth to defeat the enemies on the screen. Up to 4 players could play a stage together, co-op being one of the game’s selling points. There was also an accompanying manga following some young’uns looking to reach competitive heights in the sport. In this regard, one wonders if the manga will be rushed to completion.
From 12 October, 05:00 onwards, you can claim 3000 crystals daily for free draws in the gacha. In the mean time, rotating pick-up gacha banners, and events look to continue until the servers go offline. These mobile games come and go, and even the Disney name cannot salvage them.
