Mobile game JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Shooters will no longer be continuing its service in Japan on 13th April 2021.
The announcement came from the game’s official Twitter account, which posted the following tweet:
As a result, players will no longer be able to purchase diamonds, the game’s premium currency, after 12th March 2021.
Developed by DRECOM and published by Bandai Namco, the game is described as a “medal shooting action game”. It features gacha elements, with players being able to pull for characters from Part 1 to Part 5 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.
As a Japan-only exclusive, Stardust Shooters never had an English or global version, despite the popularity of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure worldwide. It launched in the island nation back in March 2014 for Android and iOS devices. With its servers eventually shutting down in April of this year, the game will be 7 years old by then.
While the medal shooting action game will bite the dust later this year, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure will have another mobile game. KLab is developing a new game for the series with Shengqu Games that will launch in China. Its title is JoJo的奇妙冒險 黃金讚歌. When translated to English, it can mean JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure The Golden Hymn, or The Golden Anthem.
